Protex - Don't Ring Me Up



Classic power pop/punk today. Protex, from Belfast, were formed in 1977. Originally called Protex Blue after the song by their main influences The Clash they soon gained a reputation as a great live band and attracted the interest of British record companies despite still being at school. Unfortunately they split in 1981 after just a few singles, their album, Strange Obsessions, didn't get a proper release till 2010 but at least it's release led to a couple of the original members reforming and getting back out on the road. This is the wonderful Don't Ring Me Up......
