Both “I Wanna Destroy You” and “Near the Soft Boys” were first released on Armageddon Records in 1980.Both have been out of print for nearly 40 years. This release would combine both into one double gatefold 7″.

2020 marks the 40th anniversary of two releases from psychedelic icons The Soft Boys, their Near The Soft Boys EP and the single for their biggest hitI Wanna Destroy You. To commemorate these releases, Yep Roc reissue these ultra-rare releases as a limited edition gatefold double 45. Both titles have never been reissued and fetch tidy sums in collector’s circles. I Wanna Destroy You has become an anthem in today’s political climate and features the rare disco version of I’m an Old Pervert on it’s b-side. Near The Soft Boys features two Robyn Hitchcock-penned originals – Kingdom of Love andStrange – as well as a cover of Syd Barrett’s Vegetable Man.
