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 Word - I Think I'm Falling In Love (1980)

b/w Angel

Great Powerpop from this Canberra band (1978-80)

Michael (Spike) Moriarty (Voc, Guitar) Now In "The Gadflys"
Terry Sounder (Voc, Guitar) later in "No Concept"
Frankie Villegas (Bass)
Darcy Deegan (Drums)

Also Rans were Peter Palij (Guitar) & Archie Van Der Glass (Bass)

Even though they satrted life in Camberra, they soon made the move to Sydney, living in Bondi Beach and regularly playing the local dives (The Metropole Tavern, Astra Hotel etc).
Aparently they called it a day just before an organized nationwide tour was about to begin.

The 45 was released on Festival subsidiary Infinity with Festival house producer Martin Erdman sat behind the desk.

Spike, Darcy & Frankie
