On Self Destruct(1983)

Very popular first EP of the Sting-Rays, distributed by Big Beat. It starts with the Sting-Rays theme played backwards but soon breaks into the frantic sound of Dinosaurs. The 7´´ vinyl is also best known for its great sleeve design. Tracklist: Dinosaurs--Math Of Trend--Another Cup Of Coffee--You´re Gonna Miss Me.

Bananamen(1983)

Recorded during the final session for their debut album, the Rays smashed through a trio of garage classics. They wanted to release it anonymously,  because they were bored of the comparisons with the Cramps and the Meteors. The 7´´ single reached the Top 10 of the UK Independent Charts and reached No.1 of the Sounds Punk Chart. Tracklist: The Crusher--Love Me--Surfin´ Bird.

 

From The Kitchen Sink(2002)

Great Best Of collection of one of the most interesting bands from the early days of Psychobilly. It gathers twenty of the Rays best recordings (including the band´s complete Bananamen session) as well as six previously unreleased demo tapes. Highlights: The Crusher, Don´t Break Down, Escalator, Joe Strummer´s Wallet, Dinosaurs, I Want My Woman, and Surfin´Bird.
