Rizz Wah Wah - My Bike (1982)

b/w - Red Echoe

Something different for a change; it's a sort of D.I.Y. indie tune with a blend of 80's synth & dub (On the flip).

The Exeter based band were led by Steve Waters (Voc, Guitar) who incidently is still playing in & around Exeter.

Aparently the group had their beginnings in the late 70's as a punk band although by the time this 45 was released they had definitely taken a different path!

Steve has a myspace  where you can see what he's been up to & there are also some more tunes of what he's playing now here

The record was produced by Suchart Thittichai & Mike Partridge & the 45 was mastered by Denis Blackham probably at Tape One on Tottenham Court Rd.

They also had an earlier track (Disco Pollution) on the Various Artists LP "The Circus Comes To Town" - Circus Records (TENT001) 1981

  1. Hi Bruce,

    The title of this song brings to mind something else... do you have 'Bike' by Danny & The Nogoodniks? Been curious to hear that one for a while.

  3. Thanks, I like it! I'll need to look out for a copy, but a bit cheaper than the 50 quid ebay BIN that appears periodically.
