The 4-track EP has been remastered and is available to purchase now.
The Sussed were one of the more provocative and interesting outfits to emerge from the Irish punk scene, with power-pop sprightliness and social commentary spicing up their three-chord thrash.
They also courted controversy, with their single 'Don't Swim...' being banned from appearing in chart listings by RTE for its condemnation of the nuclear waste plant Windscale, later renamed to Sellafield.
Among the band’s fans were Dave Fanning, Larry Gogan and the BBC's John Peel.
Support like this ensured that the RTE ban did little to harm their popularity, though the band never reached the heights attained by acts like the Boomtown Rats or Radiators From Space.
The first 300 copies of the remastered EP are in Limited Edition hand-numbered pink vinyl. You can get them here.
