IONA - DON'T CRY FOR THE INNOCENT CD
Known for their energetic live shows and exclusively original material, this five piece from Pontypool, formerly named GBH, rapidly grew a grassroots audience in South Wales and the West of England. According to Macmillan, "this bunch of Gwent-based metalheads further helped to establish Welsh music as a real force to be reckoned with in the NWOBHM era". In September 1982 their sought-after single "Don't Cry For The Innocent" scored a remarkable number two position in the Heavy Metal Chart of the world's oldest weekly music newspaper "Melody Maker ''.This 10-track anthology pays tribute to one of Britain's finest, featuring their highly-prized 1982 single alongside 8 tracks laid down by the end of 1980.
