Scobie Ryder - Zero (1980)

b/w - Was That A Take? (Sing It And See)

Great New wave 45 with hints of powerpop & glam.

Scobie Ryder (John Wright) has been around the music business since dropping out of Glasgow Art College and moving down to London at the tail end of the '70's (just Google him & see how prolific his work has been)

Here's a couple of good places to start

If You like this I'd also recommend Radio W.R.O.K./Dream Maker on EMI (1979)

  1. Thanks for this one Bruce - love the faux cockney accent! Oh, one little thing, it's Scobie not Scoobie - your schoolboy crush on Daphne is surfacing there, I think!

  2. Thanks Graeme - at least I got the spelling right on the rip.
