A very nice 4 track E.P. by this Washington D.C. based group. We have here on this record 3 fine, selfpenned powerpop numbers and a lame radiopop number. I think this was their lone release, but i'm not sure. There were to many bands with name "Jetz". I like it !
Side b: 1. How come yer up? , 2. Never runaway
Very nice New Wave/Powerpop single by this 6 piece band from Bridgton/ME based band with male/female vocals. As far as i know this is their sole release. Enjoy!

Side b: 1.Control , 2.Day in the life
Lesser known second single by Pressure Stops (of "Crash wonder" fame). Cool mix of white reggae and post-punk and powerpop. Released on "Airplay" records.I like it!

Obscure little platter by this Brighton based band. One side is ska-artrock with a violin solo and a good chorus line. The other side is more artrock. Nevertheless a fine record! This is their second release. They had also released a live record on Bridge House records in 1979. See more here.

Side c: 1.Rita Jenrette , 2.No fair
Side d: 1.Radio , 2.Something tells me no
Entertaining 4 track E.P. by this Garwood/NJ based band. Music ranges from Powerpop to weird New Wave to radio friendly college pop. This might be their sole release and it's a fine one.
Side b: Stealin'
Nice lone release by this band. Side a is a very nice powerpop tune with some heavy metal solo guitars. Side b is more NWOBHM/Hardrock but also not bad. Cover is a stamped innersleeve without informations, just the bandname on it. Cool!

Great Mod revival/Powerpop by this danish trio. Maybe their lone release.
This record was also posted on the great KBD blog a few years ago.
Enjoy it again!

Great quirky powerpop from this Harrisburg/ Pennsylvania trio. This is their lone (?) release. Member Jay Spiegel forms in the early 90's the band Gumball. A cool record!

Side b: First love baby
USA 1980 (?)
Fine 60's inspired powerpop/pop/new wave from this girl fronted New Jersey quintet. I havent found much informations about this group. Please read more here. And there are some videos on youtube. Enjoy!

Side b: Arabian song
Nice poprock with hints of powerpop on this record. Maybe the lone platter by this Arnhem(?) based 4 piece group. This 7" record got a extremly oversized cover (25x22,5 cm).

Side a: Wishing my life
Side b: She knows
Great and lone release by this Teesside group. The two mod/powerpop tracks remind me of "The Chords". The band came out of the ashes from "The Slaves" , a short lived punk band with Gloria of "Blitzkrieg Bop". The Sines also had a track called Jonathan on a "Melody Maker" freebie. They shared the record with "The The". I think, if they released this single 2 or 3 years earlier, they could be as great as "The Chords" or like the other mod revival bands. With maybe an appearance at the "Top of the Pops" tv show. I'm added "Jonathan" as a bonus track to this post.
Side a: 1.Socialogical alleycats , 2.Sid did
Side b: 1.Modern history , 2.Triangular resistance
A very nice DIY-ish 4 track E.P. by this New Jersey based band. This is their lone (?) release. One member was possibly later in the trash band "Dirge".

Side b: 1.Black leather , 2. Don't need (you)
Bonus Tracks: 1.Ralston walls , 2.Scotland (taken from the great compilation "Kik Rock Volume One" from 1982 with bands from the Kilmarnock area)
Fantastic self produced 4 track E.P. by this scotish punkers! This is their lone record so far i know. Sadly i haven't the ultra rare cover sleeve to my record. They had also two tracks on a local compilation (see above) i will give you as bonus tracks to this post. Enjoy it like myself!
Side a: Tomorrows world
Side b: Fast food
Lone output by Pete Zear on his own label. Recorded and produced by Rat Scabies (of The Damned) and backed by two members of the migthy "The Ruts" on drums and bass. Cool punky Pub Rock on this platter.
