THE ADVERTS - 'Gary Gilmore's Eyes'/'Bored Teenagers' (Anchor ANC 1043) Aug 1977
London based group The Adverts second single was the minimal classic 'Gary Gilmore's Eyes' inspired by executed American murderer Gary Gilmore's desire to donate his eyes to science. It's safe to say that it's a punk classic.
The flip 'Bored Teenagers' could have been a single in it's own right.
The record sold well and eventually stalled at #18 in the charts earning The Adverts an invite to perform the song on TOTP during August 1977.
