The fourth single from these Greater Manchester boys. I think this is their punkiest single they made. The band is still active and playing live. Visit the Salford Jets here.
Side a:1.Weekend , 2.Harlow town , 3.Pay cheque , 4.Don't rely on me , 5.Trouble we go through , 6.Shake and pop
Side b:1.Record company , 2.I don't know , 3.Sadie May , 4.Never thought it would happen , 5.Best friend
Band from the Essex area with their one and only longplayer.
The Gangsters released 2 very collectable singles befor the LP on the great Stortbeat Records label. The longplayer also was released on the same label.
Side a: Thinking that i shouldn't
Side b: 1.Thru' with you , 2.Hey girl
UK 1980 Never released with a sleeve ?
The track on the a-side is a great powerpop track. The other two tracks a more in a post punk vein.
Sadly i can't find any infos about the band.

Side a: Punk strut
Side b: Short cut
I like this record. I think they were not a real band and not a punkband... Maybe some guys
who want jump on the punkwave but little bit too late. A fake ? But the record is great !
Side a: Ik wil punk !
Side b: De Drugwals
Funny novelty record from a dutch carnival combo. The a- side is good sounding punkrock number. The b-side is funny too but not punk. I think it's a song about drinking and using drugs...
Is there a dutch outside who can translate this ?
