Think yer ears might need a wash Baz

It's Mike James Kirkland on lead vocals, Mike + Censations cut some great sides on Highland and Revue labels, he was also "Bo" in Bo+Ruth "You're Gonna Get Next To Me" on Claridge/EMI in the 70's and cut a rare LP under his own name too.

There's a full interview and discography in "In The Basement" mag' from a few years ago. Love "Don't Mess With Me" too!!
:ohmy:

Cheers Paul Woosnam

PS The other sides a great ballad too!

Not really being a fan of northern I have always preferred the flip side "There is Nothing I Can Do (About It)". Good record.

I've played the Don't Mess With Me out quite a few times last couple of years and amazes me how many came up to ask what it was. Great chaepie :D

Great record. Played it a lot before I left UK. Never have a problem shifting copies of this. Every home should have one. :D

Yes, the New Censations released "First round knockout" on Pride 7600 in 1974! As far as I'm aware they had a further two releases on that label.
