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!

3P Sweet - Too Close To The Moon (1982)

b/w - Getaway Car

2 interesting New Wave tunes [with bass lines that Jah Wobble would've been proud of] from this South London based band.

Tim Branston (Voc Guitar)
Brian Diprose (Bass)
Brian Nevill (Drums)
Martin Ansell (Keyboards Voc)

It was released in Feb '82 on the bands own Record Records label & was engineered by Andy Le Vien at his Thornton Heath R.M.S Recording Studios.

If you ask me Getaway Car is the better tune predating Renagade Soundwave by a good 8 years!

I'm a bit slack on info as I couldn't get any concrete evidence; but 

Tim could be the slide guitar player on this & this could be him.
Brian  probably played on this & this & could be in  Pearls B4 Swine or The Looters now
Martin possibly did this if so here's his myspace page

Well that's enough mis-direction 


  1. Cool single, but why the Norwegian character on the sleeve?

  2. Æ is also (amongst others) Old English with a sound like the A in Cat which would mean it is "3p Swat" - which makes even less sense!!

    If 3P sweet is said fast enough it becomes "three piece suite" - furniture anyone

    BTW there a wikipedia page on Æ


  3. My Life's A Jigsaw is so educational!!!
