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

The Odeons - Maybe today (1980)


b/w 8.30 Anthem

Here's the 1st of 2, 45 releases for this 4 piece.

It was their only UK release (the 2nd was a Holland only release on polydor - if you look carefully at deadbeats & no-ones wallpaper you will see the sleeve)

A good slice of mod/punk from:

Mark Adams - Vocals
Will Hill - Guitar
Jon Hayes - Bass (& song writer for all tunes)
Andy "Gypo" Rogers - Drums

  1. Thanks for posting this Bristolboy, you're an angel. Unfortunately the link doesn't work for me neither.
    The second Odeons 45 was posted by Deadbeats & No-Ones a few months ago: http://rbkwh.blogspot.com/2010/02/odeons-billys-in-dean-street.html

  6. Oh that's great! Thanks! I'm still trying to find a copy of it. It's really hard to get. I've just listened to ''No Man's Land'' on the Powerpearls comp.

  10. I knew Andy Rogers and the band. We played in different bands and he and I worked together in our local pub. We frequently got hammered together. I went to see The Odeons many times, notably on my stag night in Kingston. They sounded just as great live. I sold shed loads of their first single for them. Great blokes, great band.
