Ramblin' Rose / Get Some.
"...K. Shimamoto: Was Mick (Farren) involved in that single of "Ramblin' Rose" you did in England around '78?
Wayne Kramer: Yeah. While I was in the penitentiary, he wrote me at one point that all the bands over there were outraged that I had to go to prison and a couple of labels had gotten together -- Stiff Records and Chiswick Records -- and they were gonna put out two of those tracks as a benefit for me, and they were gonna give me all the money when I got out of prison, which was really a brotherly thing for them to do, considering that most people come out of prison with what they have when they go into prison, which is nothing, and that's generally the reason they wind up going back to prison. But when I came out, I had like 2000 dollars as a cushion to help me adjust to life back on the street. It really, really made the difference for me...not that I would have gone back to dealing drugs or selling stolen TVs or guns or whatever, but it really did...a couple grand, y'know, straightens you out. Takes the pressure off..."

Interview by Ken Shimamoto October 16, 1999 in I-94 Bar
Stiffwick was the fruit of a brief liason between the Stiff and Chiswick companies, two of the premier independents of the Punk / New Wave era. Its only release was 'Ramblin' Rose', by Wayne Kramer, founder of the MC 5. The single's catalogue number was DEA/SUK-1; it came out in October 1977, and was distributed by Lightning. Source
