PUNKNET 77 - Adicts



Discography
Links

Ipswich based Adicts is best know of it's strong visual image which is mostly taken from Kubrik's film A Clockwork Orange. Musically they were poppy power punk, bud sadly a little bit late - in late 70s they surely would have made it, but in times of New Romance and Oi they were odd band, still they did have success on Indie Charts. Their line-up was: Monkey (aka Keith Warren, vocals), Pete Davison (guitar), Mel Ellis (bass), Kid Dee (aka Michael Davison, drums).
Last time toured USA in 1994 and played 60 shows.
