shooting party - i go to pieces 12" 1989

this is my latest arrival on my trip to eagle rock last weekend. a synthpop group with a real nice dance beat to it and an erasure -like vocal. i could've swore i've heard this before i just don't have vivid memory of it. this is a 3 track 12incher that includes the instrumental and extended version. this, together with the fifth issue of debut mag that contains the song by a london based band "olympic smiles" was pretty much the highlight of the trip. i don't know if anyone would be interested, i might post the "something's pushing me" song later!!!

care - my boyish days(drink to me) 7" 1983

here's something you won't find very often and i say that because this is the short version of the song not included on the cd that was released a few years back! boy, what an album that was. i'm pretty sure a lot of you guys are quite happy and pleased of 'diamonds and emeralds' cd issue. so for you wild swans-enthusiasts who still finds in their young hearts the beauty of a new wave masterpiece, here is care's first release... b/w an evening in the ray.

fonda - music for beginners ep 1998

this is a four piece local band from l.a. real charming pop tunes full of dreamy guitars much like the last two lush's album. this is the 1st ever release from the band, fronted by emily cook and david klotz, one of the few local indie bands i would willingly recommend. although their recent works are more of a shoegaze influenced tunes this one here will take you back to the mid 90s dreampop! you can buy their other releases here------>>>>

the pale fountains - ...from across the kitchen table 2X7" 1985

you know what's great about this? you get two singles in one... no wait maybe three, was "just a girl' also released as a single? i believe so, not sure i don't know. but in this post i've included the album version of 'fatkt' from the vinyl release which you won't ordinarily find anywhere. i thought the vinyl version sounds a little more familiar to me than that cd version. anyway what a great Liverpudlian band they were, don't get me wrong shack and the strands were also amazing. pada-fafa....

tuesday blue - tunnel vision 12" ep

here's one that i have been trying to post but just couldn't get to it 'til now. i am a little surprised though that i don't see this on at all. i mean it's not a bad record, four good quality tracks from an irish band that includes tunnel vision and love me simple. i just don't know how to categorized them, they don't sound like anyone i've heard of. so i leave it to you guys besides it's the music that matters, right?!

the clamheads - summer's coming down 12" ep 1989

a pretty good band and an even better ep. a four track import vinyl ripped at 192 kbps, full of indie tracks(a little jangly) you will definitely cherish if you are an indie fan, courtesy of a good friend of mine at, was handed to me a few years back. once again djlerr thanx for this one.

scarlett and black - you don't know 12" 1986

more new wave guys, this time a much less popular group for some. there are only two reasons why this post is here... first, it doesn't exist anywhere else! second one is,... just in case one of you guys out there had forgotten how nice this little pop song sounded like. because we all have to admit back then the airwaves are mostly in favor of and dominated by bands like dmode, erasure, omd,etc. so if you simply looking for this one particular song you hardly remember back in the days, i hope this helps.
this 12" includes the extended version (not the club mix) of both you don't know and japan.

blue zoo - love moves in strange ways 7" 1981

happy morning all. today i'll take you back to the the beginning of the eighties, 1981 to be exact. we have here the 1st ever release from "blue zoo", one thing about this record... this version is a little bit darker than the album version. its sounds very raw and gloomy almost like a demo and its very good. and i prefer this one over the one on the album, i don't know maybe it's just me.

the man from delmonte - water in my eyes ep

absolute jangly pop tunes from the delmontes, i can only imagine growing up and listening to a band like this. it's more of a combination between 'the chesterfields' and ' mighty mighty', you dig!? i remember picking this up at a local record store about 3 yrs ago not quite knowing what they sound like, believe you me i 'm glad i did. and i now share it with you.

the adventures - monday monday ep 1993

this was 'the adventures' last release from the album "lions and tigers and bears" before re-grouping in 2007 for some gigs in their homeland (belfast), and following the re-release of their most sought after cd "theodore and friends" under lemon recordings in 2009. it's a pretty decent cover of "the mamas and the papas" song! a four song ep i got back in the day!!

second view - machinery 12" 1986

i have never heard anyone sounding so freakishly close to "the wild swans" until now. this really freaked me out, the first time i've heard it i immediately think of paul simpson's side project that i don't know about. or better yet tws unreleased 12" single, an amazing vocal resemblance, guitar rhythm i mean the whole works. i think i might have found another addition to one of my personal faves.

happy 1st anniversary to me!!!

everything is gone...

fruits of passion - kiss me now 7" 1986

a four piece guitar band in the mid-eighties you hardly run into on blogs, i wish i had more of their other singles as i'm curious how the other sounds like. 'kiss me now' is a very good song, a four minute excursion of finely crafted pop song. i don't know if the 12" single has the extended version.... that, would make it even better altogether huh, surprise me.
hey law, do you have the 12" single of this one if you do post it!

random single of the month

another aussie band that hailed out from sydney. formed in 1989, the four piece band were together for eight years until breaking up in 1997. they've released two full length albums in 1993 and 1996 and some eps before calling it quits. "cake" was their 2nd single and was out in 1991, and is heavily baggy-influenced. i don't quite understand a song about a piece of cake but this will definitely change your mind!

the welcome mat - cake
