Search And Destroy

From: Dublin





Dublin punk band who regularly played the Stooges track from which they took their name. An LP "Blood From A Stone..." was forthcoming in 1987 but this never came out (any tapes or test pressings out there? how far along did this get?).

The single comes in a photocopied cover and states it's the second edition. The first edition may be a casstte but I don't know this for sure. Also note the front cover variations below. "Problem Child" (not the AC/DC song) has a fourth writing credit 'Price' who may have been an earlier member of the band.

David 'Sid' O'Byrne is ex Napalm Sunday. Ministry of Youth also figure in the pre-history.
