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 Teezers - The Best Part Of Breaking Up (1981)


b/w - Rebel

Very nice glam / powerpop sounds covering the Ronettes / Phil Spector classic

Apparently the Teezers were a 3 piece female band who began life in 1974.

Allegedly this 45 was first issued in 1975 !!

The 45 was produced by Keith Marshall of Hello (I've read Rebel is a Hello cover, I'm not sure! but its definitely written by Marshall)

There is an Australian release on Function Recs [MS 509] (no p/s again 1981)

It's been comped twice here & here

Here's a promo photo of them (the hair says 80's to me) - most of the other releases on Arrival records are to do with Keith Marshall as well.
(I'm not really sure if I have a point here! it just seems to me that this record is not as old as some people believe it is)
- Somebody please prove me wrong!!

Want to hear a Disco version of "best part"!!! - Gotta love those cow bells.

  1. you are totally correct - the record is not as old as it says. We did this in the very late 7oth. I know because I am the lead singer of the Trio... my hair was silver... :-)
