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

Kru-pops - Yummy Yummy Yummy (1982)

b/w - Gimmie One More Dance

Another record that I know little about - I'm led to believe they were from the Barnsley area & were fronted by J.B Kidgell

It's an interesting romp through the Ohio Express track, albeit with a little too much synth but hey that's the charm! (I even quite like the flip which is throw away synth-pop)

The Electric Bubblegum label was owned by Dennis McGinley who was also instrumental in setting up Streetlife Recording Studios at Heelis Street & later, a gig agency with a view to finding new venues.

Here's the original

  1. Thanks Bruce! You can't really go wrong with 'Yummy Yummy Yummy', even Child did a pretty good version. I wish more people had covered Ohio Express songs, a post-glam/powerpop version of 'Down At Lulu's' would've been nice, then perhaps a thug-punk massacre of 'Pinch Me (Baby, Convince Me)'!
