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!

Gratis - Downtown (1979)

b/w - Please Call My Number

Time for another cover (Petula Clark penned by Tony Hatch in case you need telling)
This time, the bands own tune is also a great track as well.

The Band (from the Hounslow area) were

Martin Spellman (voc guitar)
John Wust (guitar voc)
John Wicks (bass voc)
Mario Watts (drums) ex the doll

Sounds & scans below



  1. Downtown is ok, that song is covered to often. B side is excellent. Thanks for all your posts.

  2. Many thankx for another lost 7" gem.

  3. When I was trying to get info for the '45 Revs' book, I had to ring their local Rumbelows cos one of them had worked there once, apparently. Or the bloke who ran the label, or something.

    One band whose record 1979 record is still not in the book, cos we can't find anyone who has it (not telling...) once stiffed me for a solid three-figure sum for records-never-received, by the way. He's moved house since then. I know this cos I was able to do a 3D-panorama viewing round the inside of his house on the estate agents' site (couldn't see any piles of records, but there were a couple of cupboards that looked like they might have once had goodies in).

    Well, that's all my news. Gonna have tea now.
