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!

Roxette - UnReleased LP Tracks (1982)


Here's a post that makes doing this blog worthwhile,

On seeing my earlier posts of their 2 45's (see here & here) Paul Waghorn got in touch & offered 5 more tracks that were recorded in the same session as the 2nd 45 & along with them were to make up a planned LP.

Blue Lady
Come Back Anytime
One Lost Love
Only Thirteen
Take My Advce

To Tie Up all the info he has provided here's a potted history

The band were all schoolfriends at Sandown Court, Tunbridge Wells* & took thier name from the Dr Feelgood track

1980 saw the release of their 1st EP The line up on that being

Paul (Wag) Waghorn (Voc Guitar)
Kevin Fowler (Electric Guitar)
Steve Wright (Bass)
Barry Dence (Drums)

Between the recording of these 45's Wag moved from Singer to the Producers chair (seemingly not his choice)
Even though they had been rehearsing the songs together the rest of the band went off & recorded an earlier version Of Another Girl without him. Luckily the tunes didn't cut-it so he was brought back in to produce.

1982 Another Girl 7" was released

Kevin Fowler (Voc [Another Girl & I Keep Knocking] Accoustic Guitar)
Tarquin Chatfield (Lead Guitar)
Steve Wright (Bass)
Nobby Skilton (Drums) who incidently took the photo of the band for the EP sleeve
Paul (Wag) Waghorn (Voc on Man and Boy)

Jeremy Chatfield also gets a writing credit for Another Girl

Wag later went on to play in Chapter One & can now be found in Insane Society

* Useless info - apparently Sid Vicious went to this school (1971) before moving to Hackney
