ANGELIC UPSTARTS The Murder Of Liddle Towers (Very rare 1978 UK solid centre vinyl 7″ for their self-released debut single, also including Police Oppression, complete with the rare ‘blackmail text’ monochrome title sleeve.

The vinyl too grades Excellent with only the lightest signs of play – the best example of this punk rarity we’ve ever seen. IS/AU/1024).
