Robert John – The Aliens Stalk the Wrecked Planet

robertjohn-frontrobertjohn-label

7″ (plays same both sides), Robert John, 1980

What the fuck? Almost laughably obscure guitar scraping 7″. Bought this from a small ad in the back of British music weekly Sounds or NME back when it was first released, something like 59 pence including postage. Can’t remember what the ad said, but it must have been pretty intriguing. Didn’t know what to think when it turned up and we’ve been bemused by it ever since. Could have been released yesterday by some bearded Midwest noise drone freaks… but would probably be on cassette, 31 copies, etc etc. Any further info, people?
