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!

The Bitter Lemmings - Bombing The Russians (1980)

b/w Pocket Billiards

It's a 45 of 2 sides "bombing the Russians" is a nice slice of mod/powerpop (which deserves to have been comped on at least the "Shake some action" C.D's). Whereas the other "A" side is white reggae (still good though)

The 2 sides were (apparently) penned by D Single & B Hind (joke names I believe)

There is a p/s for this 45 - thanks to Frank
for sending me the scans

sounds & label scans below



  1. Thanks for this mate. Me like. ''Bombing the Russians'' with its hooky side of power pop is my fave here. B side is also nice.

  2. I agree, Bombing the Russians is cool track.
    Thanks Bristolboy

  3. I have a copy of this with a picture sleeve. If you would like, I can send you scans of it, let me know. Also the labels on my copy are switched?

  4. Was told by a band member the sleeve was made by Chris of the Freshies, unfortunetly he didn't really explain the Manchester/Southampton connection there though, most copies disrributed by the band are without a pic sleeve.
    Lots of unreleased Southampton bands stuff was available through Sharp Products(Boredom City comp cd etc)
