RRIC Presents Protex "Strange Obsessions" album Launch plus special

The Underground Dublin.

"Strange Obsessions" is now available from Bachelor Records

Formed in Belfast in 1978, Protex were early pioneers of the Belfast Punk Movement alongside The Undertones, SLF & Rudi. Signed to the now legendary Good Vibrations label, their debut release received great reviews and enjoyed widespread airplay on BBC Radio 1. They quickly came to the attention of Rough Trade Records, who released Don’t Ring Me Up to wide acclaim. This in turn led to the band signing for Polydor Records, who released the singles I Can’t Cope, followed by I Can Only Dream. The 1980s saw the band take to the road with the Boomtown Rats as well as embark on two extensive tours of their own throughout the US and Canada.

The Bachelor Records release of "Strange Obsessions" is not only a simple repress, we managed to improve the sound and speed, thanks to Eric Brady, PLUS the artwork was changed a bit too!
