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

The Finders - Calling Dr. Howard (1982)

b/w - Bad Food

The band were from the San Francisco Area, California and began life, albeit with a few lineup changes as "The Rockers". They released a lone 45 which is available here

Then in late 1980 after another personnel change they became The Finders

John Rock (voc)
Phil Schraub (guitar voc)
John SanFilippo (bass voc)
Bryan Allinsmith (drums voc)

They released 2 45's.
The first being "Which Way/It's So Insane" - You can find that here & then; this, another excellent slice of powerpop (which originally due to it's sleeve, had to be withdrawn from sale under threat of legal action from Columbia Pictures & the daughter of Moe Howard. This was replaced with the less objectionable one available here)

Both Sides of this 45 can be found on YouTube Here & Here

There is a band website here with info on the availability of their aborted LP, subsequent releases & a more detailed bio.
