Killjoys were one of the finest punk bands thrown up in the UK 1977 explosion. Energetic, frenetic and just a single piece of plastic to show for it. But what a record! ‘Johnny Won’t Get To Heaven’ is up there with the best in its class.

Play: The Killjoys-Johnny Won`t Get To Heaven

Like all bands though, there were tensions in the Killjoys and none more so than with their driven leader, Kevin Rowland, who would go on to find success with Dexy’s Midnight Runners.
