Just another site that's giving you hard to find music

A Place To Find Some Rarer Tunes (Mod, PowerPop, Punk, Ska) ripped from my vinyl collection. If it sounds good I'll post it. The idea being 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.

Twist and shout - Twist and shout (1983)

b/w - No other girl

Yes this is a cover of the Isley Brothers classic but the B-side (the better track anyway!) seems to be an original.

It's credited to Lundquist & it looks like it could be Marc (?) that's signed the sleeve (as well as Graham giving all his love to someone!)

Whatever it's a really pleasant 60's sounding slice of Mod/powerpop, that deserves a second chance to reach some ears.

The Private Toucan records (TOU 010) has a Lyn cat # of - 13344 - IUT if anyone cares!

sounds & scans below



  1. Probably related to Toucan Studio, Hayling Island. Their other 7" was on the Wessex label I think.. so from Hampshire..maybe Portsmouth?

    1. Thanks for the info

      I Don't think it's the same band as The "Bounce Back" 45 - The names on the Wessex label 45 are JOHN COHEN: GUITAR/VOCALS, LINDA: DRUMS VOCALS, ALFRED: BASS,

      This band appear to be Graham Ashman (Guitar Voc), Marc Lundquist (Guitar, Voc, Keys, Bass) & possibly Hazel Johannson (Backing Voc) who had an earlier LP under the name BUS STOP


  2. I never had the "Bounce Back" 7" so had presumed they were the same band..clearly not. For what it's worth I picked up this one up at a car boot(fully autographed aswell.. they were clearly a hit on the pub'n'club circuit) and it was amongst some other local Southampton, and Portsmouth bands 7"s..which made me think of the Toucan connection, but that was just a guess.
