The epileptics 1970s ep - The Legendary Ian Tyson Official Website

The first record to be put out was a re-recording of older material made when the band were known as The Epileptics (they changed the name to EPI-X following complaints from the British Epilepsy Association and eventually emerged as Flux of Pink Indians having reverted to The Epileptics and then The Licks). This was an EP entitled 1970s Have Been Made in Hong Kong , which had originally been released by the small Bishop's Stortford based label Stortbeat . However, the band fell into dispute with Stortbeat when the label allegedly re-released the single without paying the band owed royalties . The re-recording is also notable for featuring Penny Rimbaud of Crass on drums as the original Epileptics drummer was not available.
