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

Skid - I saw her standing there (1977)

b/w - Endless sleep

It's about time for another punk/glam Beatles Cover (sorry to all those out there that are getting bored of cover versions but even the b-side is a cover)

The UK pressing doesn't come in a picture sleeve (as far as I know) but if you look out for the German (Hansa International) or Belgium (Panky Records - pic included in d/load) pressings you will be rewarded

  1. Although the German edition has a nice 'group' pic sleeve, the Belgian sleeve is easily the nicest. When I was trying to find band-info on this I had occasion to speak to one of the blokes wot wrote "Puppet On A String". He was most nice. I was humbled.

  2. Well, for once I think this is dragged down by those falsetto vocals. They can't do it like The Sweet did it!

  3. Great post. Were there any other releases Skid put out? I'd love to find/hear them.
