Side a: She's so modern

The Boomtown Rats 3rd single. In my eyes their best record ever. Both songs are great punky powerpoppers. This single reached # 12 in the UK single charts.

Side a: Better beware
Side b: 1.Time of my life , 2.(Are you) In the mood?
The title song is a killer 2Tone Ska track and will make you skanking ! "Time of my life" is a Bingo Hall backgroundmusic track and the last one is a good powerpopper.
Side a: Take it easy (Lights out over London)
Side b: Lorraine,Lorraine
Second single by this underrated band.The b side track is a non LP track and it's great. Short after this release the band call it a day.
Side a: 1.Do the crabwalk , 2.(You weren't) Born yesterday
Side b: 1.Over my dead body , 2.Sex was the only way to out
Band from Toronto with their only release. I think this record is a little bit under-produced. 4 O.K. sounding powerpoppers/punk songs.
