Gents, The

These Doncaster mod revivalists first came to prominence when they won the EMI Supergroup competition in Leeds. The first prize was a recording session at Abbey Road, and from that came a single - double A-side The Faker and Pink Pantser - which was issued in 1981.

Other tracks from Abbey Road (along with other demo recordings) formed the backbone of a cassette 'sampler' called This Way To . . . The Gents, self-released by the band late in 1981. The cassette came in three versions - all with the same design, but with blue and white, yellow or black and white photocopies inside.
