Just another site that's giving you hard to find music

These will be some Rarer tunes (Mod, powerpop, punk, ska, - if it's got a good sound I'll post it) ripped from my vinyl collection. The idea is that now you Know about them, You can seek them out!
If anyone is unhappy about any of these posts please contact me & I will take them off

B.G. and the mouse - Da doo ron ron (1982)


b/w - clever boy

I'm a sucker for punky/new wave cover versions (this one has been done a few time but the Crystals version from 1964 is still the most widely known)

There is a band biography on the inside of the fold-over sleeve (see the downloaded scans - if you choose to of course!)

This is the 2nd release on maestro for B.G. & The Mouse (the 1st being a 45 called "Breaker One Four / Channel Tunnel" - a synth-pop tune on CB radio usage with an instrumental on the flip)

Saying all of that I think most of you will prefer the B-side!!! (which according to Peter Malski was originally penned as "Belfast Boy" & was in his own words "a sort of homage" to George Best)

25/04/2011 - I've just received an e-mail from Peter Malski (Mouse - writer of the B.G. & the Mouse tunes) who has informed me of the sad news that Barry Gibbons (B.G.) has just passed away. My sympathy goes out to his friends & family.

  1. "Breaker One Four" isn't a patch on this. Nice.

  8. OK - will rip some mp3s next time I get a chance. Don't suppose you have the Sterotypes 7" do you? ;-)
