Can’t Take Two, What Will I Do?

The Lurkers : Ain't Got a Clue

Punks with mullets and a love for The Ramones. . The Lurkers were the first band signed by Beggars Banquet. "Ain't Got a Clue", the band's third single was issued in May of 1978  with a free gold colored flexidisc consisting of five minutes of The Lurkers rehearsing that eventually becomes a song called "The Chaos Brothers". "Ain't Got a Clue"  actually made the U.K. charts, peaking at #45. 

Their success would pave the way to more signings like Gary Numan's Tubeway Army, The Charlatans and The Go-Betweens. The label, Beggars Group, now consists of 4AD, Matador, Rough Trade, XL Recording and  Young Turks.
