Scottish trio from Irvine, Ayrshire (in the West of Scotland), formed in 1977 by Alan Aitken (gtr/v), Leo Bingham (v/b) and Kenny Hunter (d). Joe Lethal’s one and only vinyl release was issued in January 1979 on the self-financed Lethal label in an edition of 1,000 copies.
Decently produced by Douglas Jarvie, the 7” sold out its limited pressing locally and is now fairly sought-after. Joe Lethal continued to perform into the early ’80s but were only mentioned by the music press when they joined the Melody Maker-sponsored 'Rock & Folk Contest 1979', failing to reach the finals.
