We've had a slew of Toxic Reasons (see HERE) posts, which is all the more Reason to offer up one more Toxic rarity. This 7'' was released in 1990 on Selfless Records, though the recording was done on June 18th, 1980 at Sam's Club in Dayton, Ohio.
What makes this single so fascinating is that it adds so much to the little we know about the early, Ed Pittman-led version of TR (to see Selfless' other early TR rarity go here). Not only do we get two originals never recorded, we also get a Ramones and a Clash cover - a perfect indication of the Anglo-American sound they would develop over the decades to come!
Whatever you do, don't miss the violent, belligerent, yet touching liner notes on the back sleeve (see below)!
A1 Chinese Rocks (Dee Dee Ramone, Richard Hell)
A2 Nobody Tells Us
B1 48 Hours (Joe Strummer, Mick Jones)
