Side a: Doing it the english way !
Side b: Easy to do it to
I don't know anything about this band. I bought this record many,many moons ago in a small record shop in London for a pound because the cover looks interesting. But the sound is surprisingly good Powerpop/Pubrock and i'm still in love with this platter.
Side a: 1.Be mine , 2.Kick me one more time
Side b: It's only me
Second and final single by this North London/UK based group. It was released on the "Lightning Records" label, like their first 7", with a gatefold cover sleeve.. Great record.
Side a: With one bound he was free
Side b: 1.Mobile home , 2.Send in the clones
4th single (of 9) by Bunk Dogger (a.k.a. Tim Phillips), This one was backed by "The Mechanics". Superb piece of New Wave and Powerpop. I love the track "Send in the clones" !
Side a: Born to be special
Side b: 1.80's girl , 2.Give generously
This was released on the Carrere Records label with a gatefold sleeve. The track on side a sounds extremly like "The Beat" and the other two songs are more powerpop. I haven't found informations about this band. It's maybe their second single.
Side a: Rich and nasty
Side b: Summer in Russia
Lone single by this Mersey area based band. The band features Wayne Hussey who was later in "The Mission" and "The Sisters of Mercy" and many more. A fine piece of wax.

Side a: Give 'em a fight
Side b: Radioactive love
Heavy "Johnny Thunders + The Heartbreakers" influenced punkrock from Cortland/NY. Especially the track on side b. One of the band members was later in "The Effigies". Killer stuff !
Side a: 1.Everything , 2.Heart collector , 3.Bad boys
Side b: 1.I got money , 2.Tough guy , 3.Serious
A band from Napa/California with their lone (?) release. Another fine piece of end 70's , early 80's american powerpop. I haven't found infos about the group.
Side a: 1.Please say yes , 2.Hang around here , 3.Vera
Side b: 1.Fads , Time won't let me , 3.Karolyn , 4.Beef bowl
A good mix of R'n'R/Powerpop and Ska on this record. The band was (maybe?) from Los Angeles. Not a bad platter.
