A long overdue round up of pretty much everything recorded by legendary Brighton Ska-Pop-Punk outfit The Piranhas.  Making it's debut on CD on Disc 1 is the band's sole self titled album which reached No.69 in the UK National Charts in 1980.  Included on the album is the Top Ten hit 'Tom Hark', now a favourite among football crowds across the country. Also featured as bonus cuts on Disc 1 are the 'Space Invaders' and 'I Don't Want My Body' singles. Disc 2 rounds up all of the bands singles on Dakota Records most of which are making their debut on CD. Includes the UK No.17 chart hit 'Zambezi'. Plus five previously unreleased studio demos from the early 80s. The third disc collects all of the band's output for the Attrix label including the singles 'Yap Yap Yap' and 'Jilly' along with the recordings intended for their first album that were shelved due to the success of 'Tom Hark'. The band's first ever studio recording, 'Shut Up', makes it's debut on CD on this disc as does the demo version of 'Love Game', previously only issued on the rare 'Rock Against Racism - RAR's Greatest Hits' compilation. The fourth and final disc contains three previously unreleased four track sessions for the BBC's John Peel show. The CD booklet contains detailed liner notes by fellow Brightonian Phil Byford plus pictures of all related record sleeves and associated memorabilia.
