The lyrics on these tracks were genius to an impressionable 14 year old, not to mention sharp and extremely fast.
Talking of fast the tracks that we know today from the "Times Up" album was a precursor to the E.P. and for me really does highlight just how good the band sounded in those early days. Many younger punks that I talk to today think it was all manic but that was far from the truth, the songs live were much slower but had a menace about them, delivered with a "have you taken notice yet" approach in their delivery. At least that's what it said to me and still does today.
