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.

Useless Info 1 - Ian Cox was the owner of the Dogrock Vinyl Corporation label

Useless Info 2 - I found these snippets on a forum (Thanks to the commenter!)
Ian Cox is now a painter and spends his time either here or his house in Gozo (off Malta)
Chris Ward was running a deli in Leigh called Gusto for some time, but that's now shut down.
Ian Cox's brother Angus was their drummer and the last time I saw him he tried to persuade me to join hands with Jesus. 
Mark Dowdeswell was on bass, & was still playing in a band The Po'crackers. 


  1. Thanks for this. Played by John Peel on 10th June 1980 so probably released that month and definitely not 1981 as on Discogs and 45Cat.

    From Westcliff-On-Sea according to Peel which is a little further east, closer to Southend. To add to the useless info, Peel's copy was on red vinyl.
