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.

Them Geezers Over There - Panic EP (1987)


A1 - Panic
A2 - Pushin' Throu'
B - The Gig

3 better than average Male/Female Voc  80's Powerpop tracks from this short lived [1987-90] Chelmsford 5 piece on the Rambert Records label

All I know is :

The band were led by Jonna Beacon (Guitar Voc) & their drummer was Andy Franklin

There were 500 sleeveless 45's pressed as a prize for winning a 1987 Essex Battle of the Bands contest.

Being Bored By Keith & Co
In 1989 they also competed on Keith Chegwin's SkyTV's Star Search (Performing Pushin' Throu' with a slightly amended line-up)

Scans & Sounds


  1. Awful choice of name and a bit of a dodgy image even for the time (I was all 'Beatles in Hamburg' back then!), so wasn't expecting much. The lead track is pretty good though, has a slight hint of 'Hypocrite' by Newtown Neurotics.

    If you're interested I've put a playlist up on the Worthless Trash website. Probably nothing you haven't heard but might be worth a look.

  2. Such a great entry, thank you! The real context is in the video included here, which shows them playing live and being JUDGED. I hope that judgement didn't contribute to their demise. All of the tracks are great but "Panic" is an unsung 80's classic!

  3. The contest was 1987 but the songs were recorded in 1981??? No wonder the rhythm section took off.

  4. Nice to see some comments - Thanks!
    James, I like the new layout & a good choice for a playlist http://www.worthlesstrash.co.uk/ for anyone who wants a look.
    DP, I'm pretty sure no-one gave a toss what Paul King or "cheggars" had to say.
    S, Don't beleive everything you read on discogs!!
