The Unwanted could be held up to be both what was possible in Punk rock and what was detested by so many others. A band who on their first gig, with no real talent for playing or writing songs get on stage and are captured for posterity on an album that goes Top 20. As a result they get gigs and a record contract, releasing two singles before giving up the ghost after multiple line up changes.

That said this so called 'talent less' band gave the Psychedelic Furs a drummer Vince Ely and Guitarist - John Ashton, gave the Barracudas a guitarist Robbie. It would also a few years later spawn a club - The Batcave - the base for a whole musical movement called Goth, all under the direction of the Unwanted's singer Ollie Wisdom who to this day pursues a career in music as DJ for the very successful Space Tribe.
