"The Flys were a British punk rock band that originally formed in 1976 in Coventry, England. After the self-release of their initial EP, Bunch of Fives, they were signed by EMI Records." Love and a Molotov Cocktail (EMI, '78) is a wmbr favorite.
"Formed straight from school in the summer of '76 by Keith Wilson and Paul Codman, the Mutants' unpredictable go-for-throat approach was evident from day one, fired by an uncontrollable Stooges and MC5 fetish. After burning out several early line-ups, the odd amplifier and on one occasion the mains supply to the rehearsal rooms, the 'classic' ensemble had stumbled into place before the end of the year."

"First is the song that made Supercharger, my first band cultishly famous, and this song has been covered by countless garage bands since, including the Mummies. I knew when we finished recording this song that this would be the song we would be remembered by."
"Next up is my next band The Rip Offs, and this was my first song I wrote all by myself, or at least the first decent one, and I wanted our first single to be a blistering slab of garage punk. I think I did it. The Rip Offs debut 7”.
"The next song/songs are my opening to The Rip Offs LP, Got A Record, which is an instrumental going into Rip Your Heart Out. To me this was a perfect opening for our only lp. Here is Rip Your Heart Out."
"Next up is my third band The Infections, and our debut 7”, a song I wrote about my GF at the time. You can hear her in the beginning of the song. A pretty good punk rock slab, and very lo-fi sounding like bad AM radio!"
"My next band was The Zodiac Killers, and this was a song off of our 3rd lp and I wanted to write a stupid song about being a slave to the microwave, and I wanted it to rock." I WON'T EAT IT IF I CAN'T RADIATE IT.
"Up next is the opening track to the Zodiac Killers final lp ,this is a more poppier song called UFO Invasion.
I like it because I really wanted a rocking pop feel to the song, and I think I did it. " (Radiation Beach was #41 on WMBR's Top 100 of 2005.)
"Up next is my current band The Control Freaks. We just put out a smoking lp last year, and here is a song about everybody’s crazy cult leader killer Charlie Manson, we even did a video of this song at Spahn Ranch in front of a cave in la where he ordered the infamous killings."
"Next up is my final contribution to this ego fulfilling radio show…and it’s a foray into my first song using keyboard. It’s a pretty punk and catchy tune called First Aid Kit." (She's The Bomb was #7 in WMBR's Top 100 of 2019.)
