Paprika PST-0433/180, 1980 (Belgian pressing).
There's some truly bizarre facial hair involved here. Still, Belgian musos The Praetors knock out some killer melodic punk rock on their debut single 'Pink' which spent five weeks in the Belgian top 30 in July/August 1980. The B-side is quite different and hints at the ska-ish sound that developed on later records. Most of those later records were on the Monopole label which is revered amongst fake punk enthusiasts for releasing Bobby Ranger's sublime 'Punke Punke' and King Louis' police siren fueled noise-fest 'The Fuzz On My Bag'.
