Angelic Upstarts formed way back in 1977 and were a working class punk band with strong anti-fascist views and beliefs. Influenced by bands such as The Clash and The Sex Pistols, The Angelic Upstarts are a meeting of working class ideology and musical aspiration. Lead vocalist Mensi was always liable to provoke reaction, his lyrics making much of his working class roots, and lashing out at police and politicians.

The Angelic Upstarts launched their punk crusade with the independently released double A sided single ‘The Murder of Liddle Towers’ and “Police Oppression” in 1978. It’s attack on police brutality earned them an early patron in Sham 69’s Jimmy Pursey, who chased a similar constituency of disaffected working-class fans. The band then signed to Warner Brothers, Pursey producing the L.P. ‘Teenage Warning’ (1979). With the UK hit singles, ‘I’m An Upstart’ and ‘Teenage Warning’ (both 1979), they focused on the plight of the working class. The band went on to release a number of successful albums and minor hit singles before splitting in 1983.
