A Night At The Flicks

There are a number of albums kicking around that highlight Birmingham music at different points in time and across different genres.

A Night At The Flicks is one such album. Released in 1985 on N.R.O. Records this 16 track lp covers synth driven indie, post punk, reggae, C86, psychobilly and hard rock. There are some great tracks on this album which was compiled by Jon Buxton, Terry Boazman and Paul Panic from The Accused

I need help in filling in a lot of gaps on this one. From details about the bands to the N.R.O. Records to the people in the credits.

Where you in one of the bands? A fan or remember seeing them play? Know who and what N.R.O. Records were or do you know, or are you one of, the people in the credits?

I’ve photographed the album so read the sleeve notes in the 1,2,3 order I’ve arranged them in!
