# 440 Smart Alec - Scooter boys

Side a: Scooter boys
Side b: Soho
UK 1980
This is the second single by this studio only band. See for more Information and the first single here. Like many bands who tried to jump up on the "punk bandwagon" in 1977, they tried to jump up on the "Mod revival" bandwagon in 1979/1980. But i like both records of Smart Alec.
This record came out on the same label (B&C Records) as Pete Newnham's great record "Rudi" and Horrorcomic's "Jesus Crisis".


# 439 The Degrads - I saw Bobbie sobbing in the lobby

Side a: I saw Bobbie sobbing in the lobby
Side b: Frontal lobotomy
USA 1983
Great single by this Rochester/New York 5 piece band. Great teenage powerpop with a punky edge. Meet the band here.


# 438 Silverstone - So what

Side a: So what
Side b: O.K.
NED 1977
Nice protopunk/glam/R'N'Roll on this record by this Arnhem/ Nederlands based 4 piece group. They were active from 1977 to 1979. This is their only release. This is one of the earliest Punk releases from Holland. Please read more here.
