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 Relatives - As a child (1980)

b/w - Say goodbye to your body

Excellent punk/powerpop coming in a lovely over sized stapled sleeve (a couple of which are starting to rust)

I'm led to believe that this four piece where from Oldham (Dave, please keep sending the Peel clips they're really helpful for information - there's nothing on the net! or in books (yes some of us still use them!))

they were (& probably/hopefully, still are)

Shaun Carter - vocals/guitar
Raymond Lyness - bass
Dave Brown - Drums
Ian Cameron - guitar

If this whets your appetite, pop over to Low Down Kids I believe they may have one for sale (S - I'll call later for my commission - I wish!)

sounds & scans below

  4. Steve, I don't believe anything. your not even give a good quality mp3. lol
