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

Glass Torpedoes - Tall Stories (1981)


b/w - Call It Music

3rd & final 45 from Liverpool (Kirkby) band Glass Torpedoes (almost as good as the 1st & a darn sight better then the 2nd)

There's not much left of the line-up that released the "Someone Different" ep in 1979 (the Drummer being the only surviving Member)

The boys & girl on this 45 were

Kate Gill (voc)
Paul Reason (guitar) later in Ex post Facto
Bernie Carroll (bass) later in Ex post Facto
Mark Coleridge (drums) later in Ex post Facto & Stiffs amonst others

The sleeve shown is the promo fold over that preceded the "proper" release sleeve (see d/load for scans)

In case you're wondering, the preceding (2nd) 45 also on Leo Sound (Unreal the Real / Running Wild - LEO 1001 -1980) utilized John Milton (guitar voc) & David Maxwell (guitar voc) instead of Kate Gill.

You can find a bit more info here

  1. Excellent record. I own John Milton's and ''Someone Different'' and I have to admit this is their best one in my opinion. Thanks for it.

    Any chance you have any of these?

  4. Thanks a lot dude! The DNA track is seriously amazing. If the rest of the EP would be just as good as this one, definitely worth a listen. However, 200 euros is a bit expensive for my pocket.

    BTW- Great numbers on the Refugee 45!
