The Vibrators – Pure Mania (1977)

Pure Mania was the debut album by the  Vibrators. It was released in 1977 on Epic Records and reached No. 49 in the UK Albums Chart. The song “Baby Baby” was released as a single.

Trouser Press writer Ira Robbins described the album as a “treasure trove of memorable ditties”. Allmusic’s Mark Deming said the album “isn’t purist’s punk, but it’s pure rock & roll, and there’s nothing wrong with that.”In his consumer guide for The Village Voice, critic Robert Christgau described the album as “good new-fashioned rock and roll at its wildest”

And track 5 on side 2 gave the band ‘Stiff Little Fingers’ their name!
