Coventry guitarist/singer/songwriter, Dave Pepper played guitar with Coventry punk band the X-Certs, who began life in 1978 and lasted for 3 years. Between leaving the X-Certs and starting up his biggest band in the U.K (Blitzkrieg Zone), Dave flirted with several musical styles,  one of which was the new romanticism of ‘Courtiers of fashion’.  This is a very rare recording originally released in 1983, the first record on the Sonar record label now available as vinyl or download.
