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.

Twist 'N' Shout - Bounce Back (1979)

b/w  As It Happens

Cool Powerpop on the Sole 45 from this Worthing 3 piece (1978 - 1981)

John Cohen (Voc Guitar)
Alfred Armstrong (Bass) 
Linda Doe (Drums Voc)

When Worthing band (1975-78) "Better Looking" [Members - Peter Juster, John Cohen, Graham Skinner, Kim O'Mahoney, Brian Morris, Steve Rose & Linda Doe] folded 2 bands were to emerge:

Store Ad

The Same (Steve Rose, Peter Juster, Brian Morris & Tony Denyer) & Twist N Shout

John Cohen (Voc,Guitar) & Alfred Armstrong (Bass) would later re-join Tony Denyer (Drums) & Peter Juster (Alto Sax) along with Greg Davis (Tenor Sax) as The Hot Heads

Useless info 1 Linda Doe later Married Brian Morris

Useless info 2 This release was WEX268 & The Same's sole 7'' release (Movements/Wild About You) was WEX267

Useless info 3 Their Full time jobs at the time were  John Cohen (Assistant Manager of Worthing Record Shop), Linda Doe (Secretary) & Alfred Armstrong (Computer Operator for an Insurance Firm)

This is not the same band even though the labels are from the Portsmouth area.
