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.

Punkettes - Going Out Wiva Punk (1977)

b/w Polythene

“Punksploitation” - The short-lived practice of putting together a group of Seasoned Session Musicians and asking them to produce a loud and/or crude punk single in order to quickly cash-in on the punk “fad” that was peaking in the late 70s.

Talking of Punksploitation

OK, So this is a Novelty Cash-in 45 [More than Possibly for the Christmas Market, as it was released Nov '77] However it's the B-side that has grown on me over the years.

Both sides are penned by different people - Eileen Ray / Terry Bull

The Lead Vocal is rumoured to be Sue Wilkinson RIP (Yes That Sue)

Useless Info - Terry Bull was a writers pseudonym used by John Lees (Barclay James Harvest)
