Use Your Weapons Well = 2 CD = (CD)
DOUBLE-CD version has 20 page booklet and OBI. Sparta was formed in late 1979 by Tony Foster on lead guitar. The line-up was completed by Tony Warren on bass guitar, Karl Reders on vocals, Steve Snake Reders on guitar and Paul Radge Reders on drums. In late 1978 they had started following/assisting local Mansfield band Xerox. Xerox split up in 1979 leaving Tony Foster and Tony Warren 'unemployed'. Karl, Paul and Steve joined up to form Sparta. Karl laid down his bass guitar to concentrate on vocals. Sparta came from Mansfield (in Nottinghamshire), which back in the early '80s was a town with a healthly local scene. There was a good number of local pub-based venues where local bands played all the time, Savage and Tyrant being among them (as featured on the Scene of the Crime album). After having established a healthy local following, the next step for Sparta was to have their on vinyl out. In 1980, Nottinghamshire-based label Suspect Records put out Sparta's debut single pairing 'Fast Lane' with 'Fighting To Be Free'. Suspect Records basically was founded to allow the band to release their first single, financed by the band. 1.000 copies were pressed primarily for promotional purposes, since a "real" single always impressed more than a demo tape.
