Side a: Prisoners
Side b: Sunstroke
What is powerpop music without the Vapors ??!! This is their first release. Prisoners is a cracker of a song !! And i think, this song is much better than their massive hit "Turning japanese" who reached no.3 in the UK charts. Oh yes ! I love the Vapors !!
Side a: 1.I crave to be hermaphrodite , 2. X-ray
Side b: Storm
Obscure post punk on "Abstract Records". Produced by Nicky Garret of the mighty "U.K. Subs".
The songs on the a-side sounds a littlebit strange to my ears but the song on the b-side is a good track. Sadly i haven't a cover sleeve.

Side a: 1.Cover band , 2.Annette's got the hits , 3.I hate my school
Side b: 1.Clorox girls , 2.S&M party , 3.Standing in front of poseur
This record is fuckin' brilliant ! An american punk classic. This was their first platter and their best in my opinion. Read more about Red(d) C(K)ross here. Or meet them on MySpace.
Side a: 1.Rotten Rock&Roll , 2.Keep your mouth shut , 3.Secrets , 4.Affront , 5.The Dispossessed
Side b: 1.The Pain , 2.Kerb crawler , 3.Tony , 4.London , 5.Laundry machine
I think this is a littlebit a forgotten record. This was only released in Germany but the band is (maybe) from the London area. Good political DIY/powerpop/punk. I like it ! Read more here.

Side a: Small ads
Side b: Motorway madness
This is one of three singles i know from this band. All records were released in 1981. I don't know which one was the first. I love this very british feeling on their records which reminds me of bands like "Madness" or "The Monks". Great !
Side a: I need nothing
Side b: Electrocutioner
Recorded in 1977 and released in 1978. This is the third single of the mighty Menace. They play again and have a new record out with a new singer. Please check out the band's website.
