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 Monos! - U.F.O. (1979)

b/w - Teenage Confessions

I've been asked for this a few times so it's time to honour those requests.

This is the 2nd of 4 releases for this London based band (all produced by Bill Kimber) as with the other 3 it's more than decent powerpop. (well actually 2, their 1st 45 Erica Fire is a bit poor in my opinion)

The quartet ran from late 1978 to mid '80 & comprised

Fran Ashcroft (voc, guitar)
Gez Prior (guitar)
Kenny Jones (bass)
Mick Pearl (drums)

Their other 3 45's are

Erica Fire/Louie - RCA PB 5178 (1979)
Uh Oh Uh Oh/Mad Lover - RCA PB5232 (1980)
Sound Of Your Radio/Don't Take It Too Hard - RCA PB 5254 (1980)

Fran & Mick were then joined by Rose Saddler (bass) & Pete Giles (keyboards) to become The Faraway stars
Whilst Gez & Kenny joined up with Chris Wyles (drums) & Virginia Astley (keyboards) to become Victims Of Pleasure

Fran Ashcroft is now a very successful Record producer
