The Riot Squad - Newmatics, 1981

Double 7”
Doobie Do Boy / Riot Squad
Broadcast / Crossed Wires

The story of the band and the the making of this piece of classic NZ ska-pop is here, on the wonderful Mysterex site. I scanned and posted the front & back covers of the gatefold in May 2010. A hi-res scan of the glorious interior is here.
