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.

Sounds & Scans Below



  1. One of the original D.I.Y. monsters! I remember looking for this when I was in high school in the early '90s. Had it on tape for years. This rip sounds better and clearer than I've ever heard it...I can actually make out the violin now. Didn't know they were from Stoke...and that ain't no joke! Definitely bridges the gap between street-punk/Oi! and D.I.Y./artschool punk...especially "Glandular Angela". Music Hall is the ultimate aesthetic!

  2. Thanks - I'm not sure my rips are that great, but they are good enough!
    I'm pretty sure that most of the band were from further south than Stoke & just moved there to Study.

  3. I was from Bournemouth (Rich Potter) - now in Scotland and still playing; Jules was from Swindon and is also now in Scotland and still playing. Dudley was from London and live in Greece (non-music); Chris form East Anglia (non-music) and I can't remember where Hans came form....

  4. Hi Rich - can we have a chat about this great release?
