The other big shot of the DIY world was Deleted Records from the rock and roll furnace that is Grimsby. Run by those self proclaimed Legends in their own Lunchtime, The Instant Automations, or Mark Automaton and Protag(#). It was from this stable that this double seven incher was unleashed on the genuinely unkowing public in 1980.
"This is doubtlessly one of the finest records I've ever heard, and the second greatest compilation in the history of rock!Well the proof is in the pudding: Not only does the record include some of the finest recorded moments by the legendary Instant Automatons , 012 and the Door and the Window, but furthermore a rare vinyl appearance by the Digital Dinosaurs! If that ain't enough you get some fine TVP-related spurts from the Missing Persons and extremely do it yourself DIY frenzy from the Midnight Circus. Who in "Silicone Baby" and "Hedonist Jive" have out-poignanted a tow-truck full of Aimee Mann's and Michelle Shocked's edgy humanity and funny as shit to boot."(Johan Kugelberg ,Ugly Things Magazine)

Also that the Midnight Circus come from my home town of Leicester,home of many Diy legends like Deep Freeze Mice amongst many others.
# On the subject of Protag, i can't think of any other genre that include participants with such excellent monikers as this.Other notables are Bendle, Nag,Giblet, and of course Kif Kif.
