Patrik Fitzgerald - Safety Pin Stuck In My Heart EP (1977)
4:14 PM

"Punk Poet" Patrik Fitzgerald's debut EP from 1977. Unforgettable classic with the title track later gaining additional fame (sort of) through the Bartlebees cover (which you should also check out).

Excerpt from the AMG bio by Jason Ankeny:
Born in London in 1958, singer/songwriter Patrik Fitzgerald ranked among the most memorable of the so-called "punk poets." He debuted in 1977 with the EP Safety Pin Stuck in My Heart, a collection combining the outrage of punk with a streak of optimism rare for its time and place; indeed, Fitzgerald's sincere attitude and eccentric appearance -- commonly, a badge-cluttered blazer, red drainpipe trousers and sandals -- set him squarely apart from his new wave brethren, and he was frequently the target of considerable derision from elitist audiences.
