Jaws (Germany, 1978)
From a comment we have some info about the group:
Münster-based punk trio with lone single of which only 200 copies were made. JAWS were schoolmates who worked for a local lights/PA rental company. After seeing STRASSENJUNGS and CLASH touring Germany in the spring of 1977, the three guys started to play a short set of self-penned punk/hardrock songs as a soundcheck for their sound-system. Their boss liked what he heard and recorded one of their sets. In the summer of 1977, the trio finished school and all left Münster for different reasons. Later, while visiting his parents, the drummer discovered that the owner of said rental company had released these songs without permission: confronted with this, he showed that only 200 copies were manufactured and gave 25 to the band as ‘payment’.
