Thanks so much for posting this!
This is great music & a huge part of my adolescence. PLEASE, if you can, post more Fuck Off stuff, e.g. DANNY & THE DRESSMAKERS 30 GOLDEN GRATES & 2OO CANCELLATIONS, the 012 THE WHITE PATTERNS ON HER DRESS (which includes an AMAZING version of THE AGE OF AQUARIUS!, anything by THE SELL-OUTS & the brilliant compilations FOLK IN HELL & the vinyl WEIRD NOISE EP which includes the brilliant 012 track FISH FROM TAHITI, not forgetting the legendary tape by THE TEEN VAMPIRES which consists mostly of an argument between 2 of the band! Everything on Fuck Off is fantastic! None of this sublime music will ever be please post whatever you can! Cheers!


I have Mutant Sounds on my favourites but haven't left a comment until now, despite some excellent posts (lol coxhill & welfare state most recently). But discovering a previous incarnation of World Domination Enterprises was fantastic and has made my week, I didn't know such a band existed. Many thanks for this, as well as the two Fuck Off comps, which feature three brilliant cover versions by the same band. To take a song like '9 to 5' and make it sound like that is quite remarkable. I really don't understand why this band has been erased from music history - they were a band with a real originality.
You don't happen to have any other of the F.O. catalogue as mentioned above, do you?
Anyone intested in this should have a look at World Dom's Hotsy Girl vid on Youtube.

Thanks for posting this - I didn't think I'd ever hear it again. I used to live in London for a while and with a band and we used to go over to a squat in hammersmith (I think). There was as guy (Keith, or Allen) that we used to see - he made a kind of weird london taxi with wings, and I think that's where I first heard the 012. Anyway thanks again, rob
