THE BOYS – ODDS, SODS AND DOGS!
A long-lost compilation album by THE BOYS is to get a limited edition reissue this week.
Originally released back in 1990 with help from Campino, frontman of German retro-punks DIE TOTEN HOSEN, Odds & Sods compiled various previously unreleased Boys tracks from 1977 to 1981, including ‘Walk My Dog’, ‘Jimmy Brown’, ‘Dressed To Kill’ and ‘Little Runaround’. There are also three Capital Radio ads recorded by Matt Dangerfield, Honest John Plain and Jack Black to promote the band’s second album, Alternative Chartbusters.
The album’s opening track ‘Walk My Dog’ is one of five Boys songs to be included on the soundtrack to Danny Garcia’s forthcoming documentary Sad Vacation, which tells the story of Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen’s fateful trip to New York in 1978.
The reissued Odds & Sods, which features new tracklisting notes from Dangerfield, is available as a vinyl-only limited edition of 500 copies through Czech label PHR Records from Friday 1 July. It’s available to order here.
