Spit Records are pleased to announce a very special limited edition series of 7 inch singles. All releases in this series will be limited to just 300 hand numbered copies.

 The first in the series is a three track EP by Belfast band VICTIM. The title track, “Empty Men” was recorded at Bootleg Studios, in Manchester in December 1980. This was Victim’s attempt at recreating the “Good Vibrations” sound! The song is about those people we all meet in life who bull-shit about everything, yet offer nothing.

 “The Bus” kicks off the flip side and was recorded at the same time as the A side. The line up on both recordings being Joe Moody guitar & vocals, Wes Graham bass & vocals Gary Platt drums and Phil Platt guitar. The song was inspired by Wes catching the wrong bus one day in Belfast and instead found himself on a bus full of people with various disabilities and mental health conditions. It was an eye opening experience for Wes which he tried to articulate in song.

 The final track on the EP is “Another Weird Dream”. This is the only song VICTIM ever wrote about “The Troubles” in N. Ireland. They never felt the need to elaborate further on their teenage experiences during this period. This track was recorded in April 1982, again at Bootleg Studios in Manchester. The line up on this track is Joe Moody guitar & vocals, Wes Graham bass & vocals and Mike Joyce at the drum stool.


There are also new design t – shirts, beanie hats & stickers also available from the site.
