Alehop! and Beat Generation present a reissue of Performing Ferret Band‘s self-titled album, originally released in 1981. Hailing from Maidstone (Kent), Performing Ferret Band got together in 1978 and with their amateur take on music, they wrote a small but great chapter of the emergence born out of punk, when the proliferation of small labels and self-releases invaded the record shops and created a scene which developed one of the golden and most creative periods of music, despite the participants’ technical limitations. Later based in Manchester and inspired by comedians such as Monty Python and musicians like Captain Beefheart, The Velvet Underground, or The Fall, the Ferrets developed a personal style very close to Television Personalities, Swell Maps, or The Desperate Bicycles, all bands of questionable virtuosity. That didn’t stop the Ferrets from releasing two cassettes, a 7″, and an LP during their short life until 1982. Their only LP, originally released in 1981 on the band’s own Pig Production label as a 300-copies pressing, is reissued here in a limited edition. It’s a compendium of absurdity, genius, humor, and that naive spirit which makes humanity more believable. Includes an insert with the band’s story, photos, and memorabilia; Edition of 500.

**every once in a while the shipping amounts will seem insane (usually for multiple record int’l orders or US orders with shirts and records together) but rest assured we check each and every order and will refund any differences.
