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!
If anyone is unhappy about any of these posts please contact me & I will take them off

The Bore-Town Bop - Try (1981)


b/w Surf's Up!

2 great XTC type tunes on the sole release, from this Reading based 4 peice.

Colin Williams (Voc, Guitar)
Gary Murgatroyd (Bass)*
Simon Price (Drums)
Philip Tennant (Keys)*

With the aid of (amongst others) Martin Maynard who was the director of Audiogenic Limited (1979-81) [AKA Sun 8 Track Recording studios]

They later became "The Early Stuff" (The name apparently being a pun on the "Erleigh Rd" area in Reading)

The 45 did procure a few plays by John Peel on his show & got a pithy review from Charlie Gillett in the Singles Pages of  Smash Hits (20 08 1981)
