Sad Society

Sad Society formed in Edinburgh in 1982 from the merging of several other bands who were playing the punk circuit at that time: area 12, Pressure Point and Radar. The name 'Sad Society' was inspired by a headline from the Edinburgh Evening News, which read "We are living in a sad society". The band have released several 7" vinyl singles, all featuring their brand of fast, tuneful circa-1977 punk rock, plus a CD album, '(The Best Thing Since) Hand Relief', which was released in 1995.
