Just another site that's giving you hard to find music

These will be some of my favourite tunes (Mod, powerpop, punk, ska, - if it's got a good sound I'll post it) All ripped from vinyl. The idea is that now you Know about them, You can seek them out!

The Conspirators - When You Walk In The Room (1980)


b/w - Cross My Heart

Another cover & again it's great 60's styled mod pop more in the style of The Searchers than it's writer Jackie Deshannon
 

Mid 60's Line-up
The-Conspirators were formed as a 5 piece in 1963 by Kevin Dulson and Joe Eardley in Stoke on Trent. Although by the time this 45 was released they had slimmed down to a trio.& have stayed that way (although around 1986 they were a duo)

Kevin Dulson RIP (Voc Guitar)
1980 Line-up
Glyn Davies (Bass Voc)   
Dave Hughes (Drums Voc)

An LP was later released in 1981 on the same label (ZER-19028) "Caught In The Act: Live At The Hempstalls"

You can also find 2 Compilations of Stoke Bands (again available on Teford based Zero Records) with tracks by The Conspirators.

Potteries Pop - Just One Look & Here I Go Again (1979/80)
Made In Stoke - Hippy Hippy Shake (1981?)

(These tracks are also all available on their 2004 CD "The Conspirators")

Dave Glyn & Kevin 1982
