Mighty Ballistics Hi-Power

Anyone here heard of this band? They were described as "punky reggae that sounds much like the Clash" also with a political twist. I have the song 'Springheel Jack' taped from a John Peel show ages ago and have just confirmed that it was by them. It would be great if they could reissue 'Here Come the Blues' LP and the 'Matchless' EP combined on one CD.

I remember MB Hi-Power very well. I first saw then in a pub in Dalston, North London. I got quite friendly with them and they sent me some demos and tapes of radio sessions. I have, so far as I am aware, all their releases. Sadly it doesn't amount to much
