One of hundreds of short-lived independent
labels from the Punk era, Ghetto Rockers will be remembered - by some - for
presenting the world with the Snivelling Shits' 'Terminal Stupid', its second
release (PRE-2). Apparently the record was made by music journalists
as a practical joke on a rival paper, but it sounded so good that they went on
to release an album. PRE-1 was a Reggae single, 'Africa', by Rico
(1977). Rico also had an LP, 'Man From Wareika', out on the label
(PRELP-1; 1977). Thanks to Paul Winsall for the scan of the paper
label, and to Anthony Dunsdon for that of the later injection-moulded type.
