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

Performance - Sensation Extension (I Need) (1981)

b/w - Sandman

Another 2 sides of D.I.Y. /Post-punk (& again I'm preferring the flip - the crunching sound at the start is, I believe meant to be there)

The band were from Manchester see here, they began life in 1978 as a trio called "58 Variety" (was there a can of Heinz beans around, when they were looking for inspiration by any chance)

Phil Crompton (voc)
Stefan Korab (Guitar)
Phil Walsh (keyboards)

After placing an ad in NME & other music weeklys in late '79 they became a 5 piece, adding
Kevin Mills (bass)
Bernie (drums)

When they played Live there was also miming from Paul & ballet from Phil C's then girlfriend

Thanks to LDK for the info (see comments)

Sounds & Scans Below



  1. Yes, it's the Manchester band (Stefan Korab, Philip Crompton). They have a track on "Unzipping The Abstract". Synth player Phil Walsh was then in The Toy Shop, and did stuff for Divine etc.

  2. Just discovered I seem to no longer have my copy of this. Where'd it go? Not happy. Need one.

  3. There was a copy on "music stack" earlier today but it seems to have gone now!
