40 years ago (23 September) The Boys released their self titled debut album "The Boys". As Last FM puts it: “The Boys made arguably one of the best LPs of the 70s with their self-titled first album and provided the template for superior Pop Punk before even the Buzzcocks had got out of first gear”.

Matt Dangerfield tells the story behind the album and the birth of The Boys:

40 years ago today The Boys released their second single, Honest John Plain's "FIRST TIME".


Honest John Plain: "FIRST TIME will always have a special meaning for me as through it I managed to break the Steel/Dangerfield stranglehold on The Boys. Matt Dangerfield & Casino Steel formed The Boys in late 1975. They were the driving force behind the band and we were dominated by the Steel/Dangerfield songwriting partnership, the Lennon & McCartney of punk. At that time it was extremely difficult for me, or anyone else for that matter, to get a look in with the songwriting duties. That is until I came up with FIRST TIME. From that moment I was taken seriously as a songwriter in the band alongside Matt & Cas."
