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!

the Fascinators - I'm into something good (1981)

b/w - Don't stop now

This is the 1st of 2 45's by the Fascinators (& yes it's another cover)

I have to admit I was in a bit of a quandary as to which to post as both, have their better than good qualities.

So you're going to get both (second tomorrow)

Apparently they were from Harlow & used to be a 70's rock band called Hedgehog
Then in 1981, keeping the same line up, changed their name + style & ....voila became the Fascinators

the band were

Martin Bailey (Voc)
Stephen (Izzy) Izzard (lead guitar)
Robin Kohler (bass)
Stephen Banks (keyboards)
Kevin Ball (drums)

After the 2 singles they seem to have had a bit of a membership re-shuffle. This new line-up reaching the 1981 rock contest finals (whatever they were!!)
