Named after the UK's emergency telephone number,
the English punk rock band 999 was founded in London
by singer and guitarist Nick Cash, and Guy Days. They
recruited Jon Watson on bass and Pablo LaBritain on
drums, LaBritain having briefly played with the Clash. 999
soon established themselves as a powerful live act on the
London punk scene. ''I'm Alive'' became a firm favourite in
the punk clubs.
Their self-titled debut album 999, produced by Andy Arthurs,
was originally released in March 1978. The singles ''Me And
My Desire'' and ''Emergency'' demonstrated their strengths.
''Emergency'' was included in Mojo magazine's list of the
best punk rock singles of all time.
999's debut album was one of the best punk albums to
come out in 1978 in the UK and is still an essential.
