THIRD WORLD WAR "A Little Bit Of Urban Rock" 7" single BUNDLES
*PRE-ORDER. OUT 10/20/17. Strictly limited to 500 copies.
Back in print for the first time since 1972! Remastered from the original tapes. We are thrilled to reissue one of our all-time favorite singles. It really should have been a double A-side. Terry Stamp and Jim Avery (ex-The Attack, Thunderclap Newman) hold the distinction of forming probably the UK's first, for real, “aggro” band. THIRD WORLD WAR Formed in London at the turn of the 70s, Third World War released 2 proto-punk albums (Fly Records and Track Records) in the 1971 & 1972 respectively. Third World War featured an aggression unheard of at that time. With Terry Stamp’s explosive vocals, lyrics, chopper guitar style and Jim Avery’s West London, hardnut, two-fisted, riff and chord approach proved unbeatable (even forty plus years on). Their socio-political agenda and proto-punk guitar style prefigured the emergence of UK “working-class” punk bands by some 5 years. Terry Stamp also recorded an incredible solo album titled “Fatsticks” for A&M Records in 1975, moving to Los Angeles shortly afterwards. We are currently working on a reissue of "Fatsticks" slated for release in 2018.
