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

Special clinic - when the going gets rough (1978)

b/w - Sumo stomp

Here's something a bit different from the Midlands - this gets a bit of a slagging off in Mario's "45 revs book" (band info cribbed from there - thanks again!!)

Personally I don't know why
The A-side's got a nice 'n' lazy/funky
beat, admittedly it's a bit too long!
The B-side definitely falls into the new wave bracket

Apparently the 2 sides have a different line-up

A - Dave Tickle (voc/guitar)
John Potter (guitar)
Dave Keene (bass)
Pete Haddock (guitar)
Hal Haddock (drums)

B -Dave Tickle (voc/guitar)
John Potter (guitar)
Dave Keene (bass)
Mick Stubbs (guitar)
Martin Palmer (drums)
