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.

Moonstruck - Promotional Release EP (1980)

Also Known as the "It's Just A Matter Of Time" EP

Most copies are blank white labels with a number (1-100) and the band name & Promotional Release although some seem to have no numbers

For a while it was thought the A-side was called "It's Just A Matter Of Time (Before They Drop The Bomb)" due to a seller giving the below info:

"I was given 2 copies by the band's Guitarist (who is now a Record Company Executive) He told me that the band pressed 100 copies only for Promotional purpose, sending them to radio stations and record companies in the hope of getting a deal and some airplay. He also told me that they played with The Lurkers and Protex in 1979 and 1980. The Guitarist only remembers the title of the A side as: "It's Just A Matter Of Time (Before They Drop The Bomb)" & did not remember the titles of the 2 great songs on the other side."

Since this was sold (around 2010) other copies have surfaced the most interesting 2 being:
In 2013 a copy appeared (#19) with a London Phone number 01-807-1581 meaning at least 1 of the band was from the Edmonton area  
In 2023 a copy appeared (#14) that had the labels written on in pen stating the song titles are 

A1 - If We Keep Going To Places That We've Never Been To Before We'll Never Get Bored
B1 - Mice In Plastic Macs 
B2 - The Last Straw

The Matrix run-outs are
OCC+3-1-1  'Where's My £2.50?'
OCC+3-1-2  'A Porkys Prime Cut'

Sadly I know nothing about the band so if anyone can add any info please leave a comment
