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

A1 - CIA
A2 - Crowded rooms

Nice ep from this South Wales (Cardiff area) band.

the band according to the sleeve were

Gary Stockford (voc)
Spiro Darmanin (guitar)
Huw Richards (bass)

The only info I could find on them is here (which states the drummer was Chris Braizer (ex Nylonz & Zipper) & the guitarist was Phil Celia - oh well!!

  1. For me, Side 1 towers over side 2 (especially the jaunty 'Crowded Rooms') but it's yet another obscurity that I'm so glad to have heard. Cheers Bruce!

  2. Hi, I was the drummer. Join in 1979 and did the artwork using Letraset before the days of desktop publishing. I still have a few copies. Glad you like it. Dylan
