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

Terminal - Hold on (1980)

b/w we're only human

1st of 2, 45's (the 2nd being released in '82 on their own termite records (srts custom press)
This is often labeled as powerpop - It's really "post punk" with the last 1 1/2 minutes of "hold on" qualifying for the punk/powerpop label (admittedly the last part is well worth the wait!!)

the only extra thing I can add that isn't on the sleeve scans is that the "N" in N. Peters stands for Nigel (who says I give no information!)

anyway find out for yourself what it sounds like

sounds & scans below



  1. Me like. I've posted the other one at the LDK blog.

  2. I own ''Am I Doing It Right'', which is also great on ''I Don't Mind (Part1) Turn Around & Don't Make Me Laugh'' but this one is definitely much better.

  3. nice 45 hold on is a belter gets better with each play

  4. Used to have this, but it's gone the way of all flesh. Saw them, even supported them, several times in the mid-80s.

    Great to hear this again, cheers.

  5. And LDK, who doesn't have comments on his/her blog, thank you for posting a major slice of my teenage kickage.

  6. Interesting!! - which band were you in?
    & LDK is a "He" (most of the time, - sorry Steve it seems appropriate to be sarcastic at this moment)

  7. Chris Plummer, who's an original dyed-in-the-wool punk collector/trader for them as wot don't know him, was for some time pretending to old schoolmates that he'd subsequently had a sex-change. Now, that Chris, he's one of my big heroes in the punk-collecting world, but I'm not gonna copy any transgendering he gets up to. I'm a boy, me. Like girls and everything. Boy.

  8. Ah yes, "Old Velvet Plumms", he is definitely one of the nicer collectors that I have had the pleasure of meeting/trading with!

    So much so that I'm going to plug his site for him


    (Now that he's grandad I'm sure he needs all the money he can get)
