random single of the month

taken from the album eventide, this classic track from mid eighties should have brought the faith brothers some sort of a household recognition. a favorite of mine from tfb, "sunday" aka 'sunday(rebel soul)' worthy of a single, 7" or 12" but was never. though there was this white label promo 12" of 'dust in the soul' floating around somewhere that contains this particular song.. otherwise the only way to get this fine tune is thru the band's first of only two albums courtesy of siren records in 1985.

kissing the pink - watching their eyes 7" 1982

perhaps the second installment from the album naked in 1983 which is now one of the most sought after cd from the early eighties. why?.. you said, well, i will give you a couple reasons...compact disc from 1983, how many do you think were producing cds from back in that day, not many right!? plus.. the outfit's first seven singles were on this cd, imagine seven singles from a single album. idk if anybody has ever done that before, yep.. you might as well call it "some great rewards" right. well there you go, and i wasn't even talking about their music yet! so if you happen to see one for over one bill.. don't be surprised, if you see one for well under one bill.. then consider yourself lucky! for sellers, the re-sale value is off the chart.

d'arc - the letter 7" 1982

i believe this was the sole 7"er from the d'arcness themselves... dunno much about the band nor i've heard about them until a friend of mine bartered it to me for some obscure post punk vinyl i don't really listen to anymore. my gain his loss or vice versa. "the letter" was written by chris lock while the flipside, also by lock, mispelled "look"and by paul watson, both tracks were produced by phil cordell for flying records company in france. i see four different releases of this single on four different labels with four different picture covers which is unusual for an indie band. go figure! well anyway, i know i haven't featured new wave artists on this blog in a while, thought i revisits some of the old time faves and dust off those rareighties vinyls like so.

marys operation - red sun 7" 1989

this was the first and only release from these swedish indie/psyche rockers from scandinavia's abstract disc in 1989.  this two track 7 incher by the quartet(micke elfstrom, joakim olsson, jan jingbro and wolfgang fleischanderl) was also a first single release from abrstract disc that is now oop and was limited to certain amount of copies distributed but nevertheless a mustard. it reminds me a little bit of former primal scream personnel jim beattie and thomas mcgurk's old psychedelic band "spirea x", remember them? too bad these songs are a bit short.. red sun is an excellent tune, wish it could last a little longer! play a little louder, shine a little brighter, red sun shine on me today! isn't that what they always say.

pop am good - the latest thing 12" 1991

i finally got time to burn some records... been busy juggling work, family and friends and some undesirable instances. but that's life! it's unpredictable and sometimes beautiful but seldom great.
so first up, we have an indie band from the early nineties, a three piece band based in london. comprised of dermot mulan, john dennehy and steve brice.. released a couple of singles, including this one from damaged goods an independent label of east london who happens to have a vast line up of indie bands that started in the late eighties up to the present. don't really know much about the band 'xcept their music is similar to what defines indie music(depending on what sub-genres you are up to) was in the early nineties when everybody's trying to pick a guitar and create their own music! one of the songs from this four song ep, if you listen very hard it sounds very close 'disconnected' by the l.a. punk band face to face.
more to come..
