"Immediately after the release of the Chiswick single, Jeff Hill recruited drummer Dave Buckley (ex-Moonshine, who recorded a 1976 EP titled TOO YOUNG TO LOVE ME) and bass player Ray Humphries: the Jeff Hill Band played their first gig in Burtonwood on October 19. A few demos were taped in Warrington on November 26, two days before entering Londons Pathway Studios to record a second 7” for Chiswick which never saw the light of day. In the second half of 1978 a deal with Rabid Records was negotiated and two tracks were taped at Cheshires Revolution Studio on February 19, 1979, with Steve Hopkins (k) as guest musician and Andy Mac taking production duties. Rabid planned the release of a single then decided to include the two tracks on a compilation album: both projects were eventually aborted. Undeterred, the Jeff Hill Band decided to found their own label, Balloon Records, and self-financed the pressing of 500 copies of a 7” housed in a cartoon picture cover with a Ramonesy drawing of Jeff wearing a gabba gabba hey badge. The record emerged on December 20, 1979, and is worth tracking down, though it is quite hard to locate: its two Punk/Powerpop songs are enjoyable efforts with the A-side SOMETHINGS WRONG WITH MY BABY arguably being the better track. Plagued by sparse distribution, sales were minimal causing the combos demise after a final gig in Warrington on April 19, 1980." - Sing Sing.
