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 Sensational Spares - No time at all (1983)

b/w - The Windmill

I'd love to give you some info (but I'm not as young as I used to be & the gray cells are diminishing). I picked this up a couple of years ago from one of the band (Nigel - I think! - who gave me some interesting information but alas I've got a new computer since then & I guess it got mislaid in the changeover)

Hey ho - pretty sure these & 3 other tracks were recorded in 1981 but only these 2 were released (In a lovely hard card oversized sleeve - but not until '83)

The Newcastle based band was

Keith "Kosmic" Forster (voc)
Johnny Jetset (guitar)
Nigel Neutron (bass)
"Naughty" Norman Hobbs (drums) ex Arthur 2 Stroke
still, enjoy they are good punk/powerpop tunes

There's a bit more info here & Here
