Item ID: 279933

Coming out of Rutland (near Lincoln) in early 1980, the Amber Squad played a fine mix of Pub Rock / Power-Pop / Ska and Punk Rock and soon built up a reputation as a great live band with their powerful originals and classic R&B covers.
Releasing their debut single I Cant Put My Finger On You in 1980 on the S+T label, the band stretched their wings and made a break for the bright lights of the gigging circuit in London and Birmingham. The band switched to the Lincoln based Dead Dead Good label for their second single Can We Go Dancing and they found themselves on the Radio 1 playlist, being featured on John Peels show and on Kid Jensens Round Table.
The following year they appeared on the S+T compilation Where The Hell Is Leicester with the unreleased track Six of Me, however after years slogging around the gigging circuit eventually reality hit home in the form of proper jobs and mortgages and the band called it a day. Now Detour Records present to you the bands entire recorded output on one lovingly crafted package. Featuring both singles, the compilation appearance and 14 previously unreleased tracks and great artwork and liner notes by the band this is a release that anyone with an interest in the Mod / Punk era cannot afford to be without.
