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!

Dead Cert - Time Bomb (1980)

b/w - You'd Better Stop

The South London band were active from 1978 (even scoring a support slot to the Cure in '79 --June 1st -- 4th on the bill at an open air concert in Carshalton, Surrey)

The Band were
Trevor Hatcher (voc guitar)
Pete Downham (voc rhythm guitar)
Gordon Harris (bass voc)
Tony McWilliams (drums)
As, it seems with most bands there was a revolving drum stool which was also frequented by Mick Smith & Paul Cannon

These 2 tracks were recorded at R+G Jones recording studios in Wimbledon.

According to their myspace (some interesting photos & flyers there) 2 demo tapes exist

1. Jealous World / Two times / Turn It down / You'd Better Stop ( R+G Jones recording studios in Mitcham 1978)
2. Away In A way / Third Time Lucky / Zodiac (A Recording Studio In Tolworth 1980?)

some of the above can be heard there & others here

Check out the Harry Satcher Trio to see what most of the band are doing now
