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!

The Vampire Bats From Lewisham - Mr Clean EP (1981)

A - Mr Clean
B1 - Some Some
B2 - 5 O'Clock

New Wave EP from "the sound of young Lewisham" (South London) - This is from their press release, if you read the rest, you'll see why this was never a hit!

The boys were
Laurie Latham (voc)
Steve Bolton (guitar, voc) ex Atomic Rooster
Matt Irving (bass)
Bernie Clarke (keyboards) fresh from playing with Fingerprintz on their Distinguishing marks LP
Mark Pinder (drums)

Most of the band (excluding Bernie) became Paul Young's backing band & some still work with him to this day . All are in demand session players or producers!!

Steve Bolton has a myspace
