SPECIMEN were a glam horror post-punk band, who became most known for launching the 'Batcave' club in London around 1982 or so. The club became a fertile dark arts club where interesting artists of the time would perform to the nightlife in-crowd. It was just the new hip post-punk scene; only in retrospect tagged 'goth'.

They signed to London Records, first releasing a now rare Batcave compilation (Test Dept, Patti Palladin, Brilliant, etc) and some singles which became a mini-album on Sire in USA. But the success of the club maybe was a distraction. Later they had releases on Flicknife.

All their recordings, including the 12" version of KKBB can be found on the Jungle CD 'Azoic' FREUDCD054. Buy their CD here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/221953883145
