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

Arrogant Adams - You Need Me 12" (1980)

A1 - I'm Good Looking
A2 - I'm Number One
A3 - Good Company
B1 - You Got Me
B2 - Just Talk About Me
B3 - I'm Arrogant

Here's "a bit of fun" for the weekend - I guess this is what happens when a bunch of in demand session players are brought together & told to play some New Wave (with a dash of pub-rock)

The boys behind
Dave Arrogant Adams (voc) were
Chester Kamen (guitar)
Mart Jenner (left handed guitar) RIP
Paul Westwood (bass)
Dave Mattacks (drums)

Unfortunately I couldn't find out both the ladies names but here's a photo of them! (Cheryl Powling is on the right - see comments)

This was the 2nd, of I think only 3, 12" releases for Chas Chandler's "Six Of The Best Records"* (a Barn Records offshoot) There was also a RCA promo only 7" released -I'm Good Looking / I'm Number One- to ( I suspect - unsuccessfully) gain radio play.

* the other 2 releases were
Super 45 no.1 - En Route (Wasting My Time/ I Got That Feeling/ Talk To You/ Do It The French Way/ It Don't Make You A Woman/ Lar)
Super 45 no.3 - Slade (Night Starvation/ When I'm Dancin I Ain't Fightin/ I'm A Rocka/ Don't Waste Your Time/ The Wheels Ain't Coming Down/ 9 to 5
(this also had a promo 7" Night Starvation/ When I'm Dancin I Ain't Fightin)

    BTW Paul Westwood & Dave Mattacks played together again, later in the year, on Chris Spedding's LP "I'm Not Like Everybody Else"
