Song of the Day: What of the Night - Soaked Right Through

By in News, Song of The Day | No Comments

I don’t suspect many of our readers will be familiar with What of the Night, which is a shame. This Irish & English punk band released only one album in 1979 (yes, you read that right!) making them the earliest Christian punk band (if we don’t include Death, which is a discussion for another time). The LP features post-punk, mod, and garage rock sounds and would be at home next to the likes of The Undertones, The Jam, Buzzcocks and so many others. It’s super rare and hard to come by, but I managed to track down a copy for myself a couple of years ago. Shortly after releasing the eponymous LP, the band broke up, and some members ended up in a band with future Dexy’s Midnight Runners front man Kevin Rowland, called the Killjoys.

Check out the opening track, “Soaked Right Through.”
