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!

Speeds - Today Is Not A Good Day (1980)

b/w / Where I Used To Play

Here's the 2nd 45 from this Portuguese pub rock / New Wave band & it would happily sit on one of the powerpearls volumes.
Their 1st release was She's Gonna Leave Me /The House Is In A Mess (It says Mass on the sleeve & record but I think that's just a typo) - GIRA 1980
Both 45's were produced by Rock in Stock radio broadcaster Luis Filipe Barros

Lisbon band Speeds (1979-81) Were

João Braz (voc)
Luiz Ricardo (guitar) song writer
Pedro Oliveira (rhythm guitar)
João Ejarque (bass)
João José (drums)

Some of the band became Menincos Do Coro (Boy's Choir) who released a 45 in late 1981 (Revolta No Zoo / O Cursinho - Movie Play)
