An independent label from the Punk / New Wave
era. Smirksongs was owned by New Wave band The Smirks; after making a
couple of singles for the Berserkley label, 'O.K. U.K.' (BZZ-17; 6/78) and
'Rosemary' (BZZ-23; 1978) they fell out with that company and apparently decided
to paddle their own canoe, as it were. The results were a couple of
singles, 'Angry With Myself' (DHSS-01), and To You' (DHSS-02), both of which
came out in 1979 and were licensed to Virgin. A website dedicated to
the band can be found here. Thanks
to Robert Bowes for the first scan.
