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

The Broadside Outcasts - A.B.O. EP (1977)

A1 - Fred's Christmas
A2 - One God
B1 - Good As Gold
B2 - The Pop Starz

Not to be confused with the Broadside Outcasts from Norfolk who became Silent Noise this trio came from Hampshire (Yateley) & consisted of

Clive Burgess (guitar bass voc)
Terry Burgess (acoustic guitar voc)
Steve Cox (drums voc)
Steve had left the band but his replacement (Huw Jones) quit just after the recording studio had been booked so he stepped in to help out.

They billed themselves as Gospel-Punk Rock so you can expect some interesting DIY sounds (I have to admit to not liking this very much when I first had a track sent to me but "The Pop Starz" grew on me until I had to source a copy)

Terry Burgess (now living in Reading) records as the "Fabulous Bingo Brothers" which once was a four-piece including Clive, younger brother Pete & Dave Walker.

  2. Hi bristolboy

    Terry from the old Broadside Outcasts here... And many thanks for posting A.B.O.E.P. What a surprise when I found it after a google search.

    Until stumbling across this had no idea about the 'other' Broadside Outcasts... I always find stuff like that fascinating.

    No longer in Reading, am now based in Suffolk. Still have a guitar but don't strum it as much these days.

    Anyway, great blog/site will definitely pop back now and then to see what you've found.


    Terry Burgess.
