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.

Plain Jane - One Look (1980)

German Pressing
b/w Loving You

1st of 2 New Wave/Powerpop 45's for this 5 peice Cheshire based band. Led by Jean-Marc Mariole & Steve Beck

(Unfortunately for a band that had their records released in the UK / Sweden / Germany / France / Portugal & Italy there is scant info on them. Although a writing credit was given to Lloyd & another of them could have been Guitarist Gary Murphy)

J.M.Mariole & S Beck did turn up again in Household Names who released a 45 in 1981 "White Light / Much Too Young To Love" on the Blue Chip Label. [Better known to collectors for the Kicks - If Looks Could Kill & Smart Alec - My Mummy 45's]

UK Discography
One Look/Loving You - Avatar [AAA102] 21st August 1980 - No P/S
Too Serious/Made In Hong Kong - Creole [CR 220] 12th December 1980 - No P/S

Useless Info - Mariole/Beck also had a writing credit on the B-side of a 1981 Finland release "Birgitta Leinonen - Usko Pois/Rakkaus"

 As always, if anyone can add any info, please leave a comment
