Anyone know what happened to The Boys...?
I've just been listening to the album "Alternative Chartbusters" and was just wondering.

Look for their Christmas album, recorded as the Yobs, and reissued on CD by the Captain Oi! label a couple years ago. A fun pop-punk alternative to the usual holiday fare--including the naughtiest version of "The 12 Days of Christmas" you'll ever hear![:

I've got that Die Toten Hosen album somewhere...
might have to dig it out.
I vaguely remember in the mists of time that they also recorded as The Yobs... but never got the album.
Sounds interesting.

Cheers guys.

They are definitely one of my favorite U.K. bands from the late 70's/early 80's! Here's a link to their website (official?):

The pre-Boys band Hollywood Brats had an lp that was just reissued (bootlegged?) a few years back. That's definately worth rtacking down if you're into the NYDolls and other tough glam rock.
