Fine 60's inspired powerpop/pop/new wave from this girl fronted New Jersey quintet. I havent found much informations about this group. Please read more here. And there are some videos on youtube. Enjoy!

Nice poprock with hints of powerpop on this record. Maybe the lone platter by this Arnhem(?) based 4 piece group. This 7" record got a extremly oversized cover (25x22,5 cm).

Great and lone release by this Teesside group. The two mod/powerpop tracks remind me of "The Chords". The band came out of the ashes from "The Slaves" , a short lived punk band with Gloria of "Blitzkrieg Bop". The Sines also had a track called Jonathan on a "Melody Maker" freebie. They shared the record with "The The". I think, if they released this single 2 or 3 years earlier, they could be as great as "The Chords" or like the other mod revival bands. With maybe an appearance at the "Top of the Pops" tv show. I'm added "Jonathan" as a bonus track to this post.
Side a: 1.Socialogical alleycats , 2.Sid did
Side b: 1.Modern history , 2.Triangular resistance
A very nice DIY-ish 4 track E.P. by this New Jersey based band. This is their lone (?) release. One member was possibly later in the trash band "Dirge".

Fantastic self produced 4 track E.P. by this scotish punkers! This is their lone record so far i know. Sadly i haven't the ultra rare cover sleeve to my record. They had also two tracks on a local compilation (see above) i will give you as bonus tracks to this post. Enjoy it like myself!
