Part of The Optic Sevens 4.0 reissue series. Formed in post-Postcard Glasgow as Popgun, Kevin McDermott (vocals/guitar), Davie McCormick (drums), and Ross Drummond (bass/vocals) were joined by Roddy Johnson (guitar/vocals). In 1983, they changed their name to The Suede Crocodiles and released "Stop The Rain" on the NoStrings Records label. "Single of the Week" in both NME and Melody Maker, this jagged-edged, spiky pop-punk single caught the ear of many. The Suede Crocodiles went on to tour the UK with Nick Heyward. The band split before releasing their second single, "Paint Yourself A Rainbow" with songwriter and lead vocalist Kevin McDermott going on to form the Kevin McDermott Orchestra and having a successful solo career. Blue vinyl; includes postcard and poster.
