Side a: Something for the weekend
Side b: What's the use ?
Superb band from Manchester/UK with their fifth single. The title song is taken from the album "Nobody's perfect" and the second song is a non album track and it's a killer ! Read more here.

Great split single by this Carlisle/UK based bands ! This is their second split single, they made together. Some copies have a fold out cover sleeve.
Side a: I've got this problem with girls (they don't like me)
Side b: You're not my type !
Great powerpop/pubrock !! Hey, this guy speaks in my tongues (haha...). Listen to the funny lyrics !! Meet Ricky Cool here. He's still active with his band!
Side a: Hey kids let's dance
Side b: You don't find love in a supermarket
The a side is a quirky, catchy new wave number and the b side is more a little bit disco/dance music. I think, this is an english band (the names of the members on the labels sounds very english) with a release in germany. I don't know much more.

Side a: The K9s' hassle
Side b: 1.Idi Amin , 2.Sweeney Todd
Band from Reading/UK with their only release. A funny record but with absolutle political incorrect humour/lyrics. Please make your own decision. Read the story here.
Side a: When the oil runs out
Side b: Oh no
Excellent first single of this extremly underrated band from Harlow/UK. I think The (Newtown) Neurotics were one of the most important bands in the middle of the 1980's for political and social thinking punk bands. I had the pleasure to see the band one time. Still a great band !! Meet the Newtown Neurotics here and here.
Side a: These boots a re made for walking
Side b: No rules
First all-black punkgroup from Philadelphia/USA with there one and only release. The a-side is a well known Lee Hazelwood classic. But the b-side is a self-penned number and shows the greatness of this band. In 2008, Welfare Records put out the never released LP, recorded in 1978. Meet the band here.

Side a: Real fun
Side b: What's in a word
Fantastic first record of Tenpole Tudor ! The best they ever made. Sure, "3 bells in a row","Wunderbar" or *Swords of a 1000 men" are great songs but this two on this single are much better. Yeah, real fun ! Read more here and here.
Side a: 1.Outrageous / Contageous , 2.Let's loop the supermarket again like we did last summer
Sideb: 1.Screwed up , 2.Shock horror
Read everything about this multitalented man here. And meet him here.Great record, especially track 2 on side a.
