After the Incredible Kidda Band split, Alan Hammonds played with "We're only human" in the early 80's. The number on the b-side is originally a Kidda Band song. This is their lone release. Read more here.

Side b: Factory girl
Great second single by this english boys. We have here some good powerpop with some hints of 2 Tone ska on the flip side. This band is a complete mystery for me. See here for the first T-Boys single.

Side b: I'm a radio
First single by this Aylesbury guy with his band. This is the german "bronze records" issue. The UK release was without a cover. The a side is a bit boring for my ears but "I'm a radio" has a great hook line and is worth listening.He was also known as Warren Bacall.Warren sadly passed away in 2008.Please read more here.

Fantastic single by this Tempe / Arizona band. Maybe this is their lone release. I haven't found more informations. Only a few videos on YouTube.
Side a: Nothing left to say
Side b: Anyone can
Second release (after the 5 track debut 12" in 1980) by this Durham/North Carolina based band. Great XTC-ish new wave on this platter. I love it ! Read more here and meet the band here.
Side a: Panic
Side b: Never dress right
Lone release by this group on Towerbell Records. The track "Panic" was also released on a compilation called "Charthits 81 Vol.2" a long with artist like Michael Jackson, Madness, OMD, Shakin' Stevens and more ..... !?! I haven't found more infos. This is not the same band that released the "You can do it" EP in 1979.

Side a: Modern toys
Side b: Feed the meter
Superb second and last single. Quirky new wave/powerpop on both sides. Like the first single (50 % reduction) this was released on Polydor records without a picture cover (only in the red company sleeve).
Love this record !!
