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

MI5 - Alright on the night (1980)

B1 - Television Screen Heroes
B2 - Don't Make Waves

Nice 3 track New wave 45

Tracks 1 & 3 owe a heavy debt to "the police" in that they are punky white reggae but Television Screen Heroes is the real winner to these ears.

The South London based three piece were

Keith Smart (voc bass) make sure you follow the link for interesting incite into the band
Kevin Leigh (guitar)
Pete Muller (drums)

According to the labels the songs are all penned by Kevin Buckley (there's no mention of this name in the above piece thou!!!)

Sounds & scans below



  1. Buckley/Leigh, maybe? Dunno, but I think Keith Smart might be Keith Renton who once was (or wasn't really, depending on who you ask) in Crisis. Briefly. Maybe???

  2. Love the production on this one, despite the unpromising sleeve.

  3. You can read about the adventures of M.I.5 at www.keithsmart.com The A side, ALRIGHT ON THE NIGHT was actually a demo! DON'T MAKE WAVES was recorded at John Lennon's studio in Ascot (when it was owned by Ringo). Keith Smart
