The Tights

Effective period / Period of releases: 1978 - 2017

Responsible for the first two releases on Cherry Red, Worcester outfit The Tights were described by label boss Iain McNay as "Malvern's answer to The Sex Pistols - 15/16-year-old kids in a punk band." Originally named The Jerks (because they began by writing "jerky songs"), The Tights debuted in June 1978 with Bad Hearts / It / Cracked, a Single of the Week in Record Mirror and endorsed by John Peel. September follow-up Howard Hughes was a tribute to the legendarily eccentric America tycoon, but the band were unable to commit to regular gigs and they broke up the following year.
