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.

the Snakes - Teenage Head (1976)

b/w - Lights out

Great Version of the Flamin' Groovies classic on the A-side flipped with a cool punk 'n' roll tune on the B.

The UK band with this Dutch only release were

Bob Gotobed (AKA Robert Grey) (Voc)
Nick Garvey (guitar) - ex Ducks deluxe
Rob Smith (Bass)
Richard Wernham (drums) - ex Bazooka Joe

The Band lasted from late 1975 to early 1977
Nick Garvey then went on to the Motors.
The other 3 played in Art Attacks for a while before Wernham (now Ricky Slaughter) joined Garvey in the Motors & Gotobed joined Wire (as their drummer)

  1. Great post. Lights Out was a b-side of Dr. Feelgoods "Sneakin Suspicion".

    I always thought it was their track, I guess now that this is an oldie, does anyone know?

  2. Interesting here's the Answer "Lights out" was composed by "S David & M Rebennack" as credited on the Dr feelgood 45 & was recorded by "J Byrne" as credited on the snakes 45

  3. Interesting, I wouldn't mind hearing the 58 version now.
