Found this in my record collection. I overlooked this a littlebit. Shame on me ! This is a real killer record !! Every songs is a real cracker ! I love it ! Read everything about the band here. And sorry, the record is a bit noisy.
Side a: As i pass you by
Side b: Tonight
Nice punky powerpop from the UK. I haven't found informations about the band. May their lone release ? I don't know. Backcover says the tracks are taken from their forthcoming album "Quick as a flash".
Side a: 1.Irene , 2.Cridsilla
Side b: 1.Barbarellas , 2.Shy
Band from Worcestershire/UK. The band formed when Wendy Wu joined the band members of the punk band "Satan's Rat" and they were immediatly compared to "Blondie". This is their best
record in my opinion. Especially "Cridsilla" is a cracker !!

Fantastic 5 track single of this four Sussex/UK boys. Every track's a winner ! This is their lone release. Sadly i haven't the special 7"x 7" cover picture.
Side a: Laser love
Side b: Your love is alive
Second output by this Essex/UK based group.Decent but ok synth powerpop with a few weak moments in the songs. The b side is a non LP track. Great stamped out cover sleeve with clear orange vinyl. Watch here. And read some history here.

Fantastic and completely overlooked record of this Portland/USA based band ! A great mix of punk/powerpop and (hard)rock. Read a littlebit of the history here and here. I love this record very much !! And please note the cover is normaly not in this shape. The pre-owner had too much spare time and coloured the cover with a silver pencil....
