Knox of The Vibrators’ side-project: two albums never before on CD, in a two-CD set. Plus nine bonus tracks and 12-page booklet with notes by Knox. Features Hanoi Rocks members Andy McCoy and Nasty Suicide.
In 1984, Knox found he had some spare time away from The Vibrators and a bunch of unused songs. He teamed up with Hanoi Rocks who were also kicking their heels to form ‘Fallen Angels’ and recorded an eponymous album.
The project continued for a further two albums, now issued on CD for the first time. With Hanoi Rocks busy, in 1986 he formed a regular line-up with guitarist Matt Kellet, Vibrators bassist Mark Duncan and drummer Richard Wernham (aka Ricky Slaughter of The Motors).
The ‘In Loving Memory’ album featured guest appearances from Hanoi Rocks’ Andy McCoy and Nasty Suicide. Richard Wernham gave the single Hey Susie an untypical, over-the-top pop production. The album features a cover painting by Knox.
A third album, ‘Wheel Of Fortune’ followed in 1988, again with Nasty Suicide guesting, which spawned the singles Clouds and Teenage. By this time the band were gigging around the UK and also Europe.
The nine extra tracks include b-sides, early versions including the raw version of Hey Susie, a reworking of Teenage, a demo for an Urban Dogs track, and both a short and 21-minute long version of ‘Troops Of Tomorrow’, the Vibrators anthem that The Exploited covered and put into the national charts.
Although Knox has currently curtailed live performances with The Vibrators, a new Vibrators album is being recorded with guest appearances from Chris Spedding, Hugh Cornwell, Walter Lure, Wayne Kramer, Anti-Flag and many others. He’s also resurrected the Urban Dogs, his collaboration with Charlie Harper of the UK Subs, performs with a country outfit Trailer Trash Orchestra aka Knoxville Boys, and frequently shows his paintings in galleries around London. Both the 'Fallen Angels' and 'In Loving Memory' albums feature Knox cover paintings.

PLEASE READ THE SMALL PRINT BEFORE YOU BUY:
Payment Paypal is smoothly integrated into ebay, and works well. If you don’t have PayPal or want to pay by credit-card, you can still do so through PayPal. Just DON’T LOG INTO AN ACCOUNT, and look for the button saying ‘Pay by credit-card’. We also accept cheques from UK banks in Pounds Sterling, and UK Postal Orders. Checks in US Dollars from US banks can be accepted with a $3 surcharge. PayPal ‘eCheque’ payments take a week longer to arrives, so expect a delay. You can avoid eCheques by having a credit-card linked to your PayPal account. Orders paid by any method outside of PayPal may also be subject to delays.
Postage UK and particularly international postage charges have risen sharply (May 2012). The amount we charge is what we expect to pay plus approx 20-30p for packing materials. Multiple items postage If you are ordering multiple items, there will be automatic approximated reduction in postage costs – but make sure you order them together, not individually. If the estimate still looks excessive, don't pay but click on the 'Request total from seller' button in the shopping basket. We'll then recalculate the costs for your combined items postage and send you an invoice. The postage may or may not calculate as less; we’re trying to refine the accuracy of the automation. Delivery time excludes weekends and Bank Holidays, which may be different in the UK from elsewhere. Packets to overseas destinations (particularly Italy and Russia) often take longer than advertised due to local customs delays. Please note, the date printed on our postage is a day or two after we print it, ie it’s the date it remains valid until with Royal Mail, not the date of posting.
Problem? We want you to be really happy with your purchase. If you’re not, or something’s gone wrong, please message us. We will do our very best to resolve any problem.
