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

Spare Parts - She's A New Kind Of Girl (1979)

b/w - Paint It Black

Great powerpop on the A-side whereas the Rolling Stones' cover on the flip is not the best version I've heard (let's face it there must be 100+ versions out there)

The North London based band (1977 - 1980) were
Phil Nunn (lead guitar voc) later in Splash
Mark Fanthorpe (guitar voc)
Jon Kocel (bass) later in Bleak house
Maurice Hollingsworth (drums) later in Bleak house
Jeff Hammer (keyboard voc) later in Teardrop Explodes
