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

Stilts - Waiting For A Miracle (1981)

b/w - People And Buildings

This 45 doesn't really know what it wants to be (snyth led but with ska / powerpop overtones) anyway I sort of like it!

I couldn't find much info on the (Manchester based?) band (an internet search shows there are plenty of this record for sale)

It's on the Mansfield based Rondelet Music & Records Label.

Both sides were penned by P. Soffe & the bass player was Mike Wellman (creator of Pacru). As to the identity of other 3 - Anyone know? (See Comments!)

Sounds & scans below



  1. A very cool little single - thanx Bruce!

  2. Thank you very much for this 7. Really fantastic. Cheers.

  3. Paul Soffe was the singer songwriter in the band (and keyboards prior to Mark's arrival).
    Andy Summers was the drummer.
    Ged Kelly was the guitarist.
    Mike Wellman joined the band later on in 1980 on bass and was followed by Mark Vibrans on keyboards (who worked for many years as a musical director in theatre). From left to right the cartoons are Mike, Mark, Paul, Ged, Andy. Comment from Mike Wellman

  4. Excellent Mike. Thank you for the info!!
