ANGELIC UPSTARTS- The Murder of Liddle Towers 7"
Formed in 1977 in South Shields the Angelic Upstarts self-released debut single released in 1978 was The Murder Of Liddle Towers. The song highlighted the death of Liddle Towers who died after having been beaten in police custody, a crime that was covered up and no officers ever brought to justice. The record became a rallying point against police brutality. The record, and it’s B side Police Oppression became a classic punk single and is a passionate call for justice.
