In 1977, when the first Generation of Punkbands already had big Gigs,  "The Adverts" stepped out of the practiseroom. First with small Gigs as supportband at The Roxy in London, they got a Recorddeal after a few weeks for releasing the "One Chord Wonders" Single. Later the Year "Gary Gilmore's Eyes" was a big succes, so they even get to Support "Iggy Pop". The Band presented all Songs Live, that would be later the "Crossing the Red Sea" Album.
