V2 - Speed Freak (Red vinyl)
V2 formed in March 1977 evolving from the early Manchester punk scene based around the legendary Electric Circus venue. Of the four Manchester punk bands around at the time – The Fall, Buzzcocks, V2 and Warsaw – V2 were the ones who fell to earth: ‘as subtle as flying buzz-bombs’ and destined for the same early grave.
Their first single, self-titled, was released at the end of 1977 on Bent Records and was instantly recognised as a punk rock classic by fans, selling 7800 copies over three pressings.
Now selling for no less than £70 on Discogs and with the band having recently reformed, now seemed liked the perfect time to reissue the single.
This repress closely reproduces the original artwork and label and is even pressed on red vinyl, just like the original.
