Sweet Revenge from The 101'ers only officialy released album, Elgin Avenue Breakdown, though the song itself was initially recorded in early '76. Also released as a single twice on different labels in '80 and '81, though I have yet to obtain a certifiable cover for either release (the second pic in the video might be correct, 50/50 it's a fake really).

Beautiful song this, certainly the prettiest (though not necessarily the best) from the 101ers, with a nice acoustic solo from Clive Temperley. According to drummer Richard Dudanski Joe had a heavy cold on the day of recording this song, but I (and Dudanski for that matter) think it just makes the song all the better.
Havn't find any official lyrics to this, but patching up some attempts at translation with my own pathetic guesses, I've come up with at least a decent lyric sheet that is probably correct at least half of the time.

Well maybe Mister alcohol has booted up your chin
The fight it leads to hospital and informing the next of kin
But trying to get your own back should never (win anyway?)
Why don't you change ya tack, Jack and hear me when I say
Sweet Sweet Revenge
She carries a bitter sting
You go round believing in her
But she won't bring a thing
Well, I could well remember when My (cool?) days back at school ooh yeah yeah You hit him, he hits you back
Well, that is all the rules
So my days were occupied yeah
By vendettas all the time
Any stain upon the floor the blood was always mine
Sweet Sweet Revenge
She carries a bitter sting
You go round believing in her
But she won't bring a thing

(repeat)
