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!

Johnny DuCann - Where's The Show? (1977)

b/w - Hang Around

Here's the 2nd 45 of 3 that are worth looking for from John Du Cann (guitar, voc)
If you followed the link you'll have seen John Cann has had a long & varied career (The Attack, Andromeda, Atomic Rooster & quite a few others)

Great A-side but Hang around has a little too much "Quo boogie" for my liking - I guess that's what happens when you let Francis Rossi produce your records

His little helpers on the record were
John McCoy (bass)
Peter Kircher (drums)
Andrew Brown (keyboards)
I also read a rumour that a few guitar notes may have came from the producer!

Here's John With the 1979 chart hit Don't Be A Dummy on Top Of the Pops & the original track on the Lee Cooper Jeans Ad sung by Gary Numan.
while you're at it check out the follow up ad by Lee Cooper with Gary Holton (HMK) singing

If you want to get hold of His unreleased Arista LP (The World's Not Enough) & some other demos pop over to Angel Air Records

  1. I was thinking 'what follow-up Lee Cooper ad?', but after following the link, it all came flooding back. Didn't realise it was Holton at the time though. Lee Cooper jeans were a bit 'Dad', weren't they?

  2. Johnny DuCann is my hero! This is the only record I don't have with him on it, so thank you again sir.

    I have a tiny request: Shattered Dolls (Rox 015) 7''? Out of Liverpool I believe?
