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 Rookies - Snapshot (1981)

b/w - What the papers say

The lone release by the Rookies on the applause label credited to Gary Tillyer

What can I say! - here's another that I know nothing about.

The B-side is the better track (bit of a Joe Jackson feel to it)

sounds & scans below



  1. This is another one of those 45s with another great B-side! Fave blog!

  2. nice 45 love both sides but actually prefer the A side your right bruce there is a joe jackson/graham parker/jags/costello feel to both sides thanks bruce for another unheard gem

  3. This is a weird one. I can download all the others on this wonderful blog, but when I click on the download link in Mediafire it says 'your download is starting, but then it doesn't. Tried allsorts. Anyone had the same problem?

  4. it's probably media fire being a bit touchy - just try again at another time

  5. Well, computer finally relented and I got it! I was thinking Elvis Costello, but yes, Joe Jackson too!

  6. This was me. Its all about the bass
