Babylon Rebels

Pudding has sent in the following:

Does anybody out there remember the Babylon Rebels, a Moseley-based band who moved to London after 1981? They gigged from 1980 to 1983 before folding and made an unreleased album with Dennis ‘Blackbeard’ Bovell at the controls.
As of December 2015 only 4 of the original 6 members are still alive. Very little media has survived the test of time but I do have some tracks here if there is any interest.
