fleshpuppets - scarecrow 7" 1984

fleshpuppets is a band hailing from manchester, the capital of the north, a football team(that's soccer for us, here in the states). and before we've become an avid fan of the stone roses, oasis or the smiths.. etc. etc., making their music the soundtracks of our lives and what not. manchester was way way ahead of their time, music-wise, so much to answer for, weekenders, baggy keks, the scene, mad fer it, salfords and so on. so original they even have their own "manc dictionary", now how many cities do you think can top that? well not many i don't think. so shut yer cake 'ole and listen on.
fleshpuppets released two singles under plague records in 1984 and disappeared in 1987. the band was comprised of si, nick, dr. v and eric.....

helter skelter - consume 12" e.p. 1990

here's another one of those unheard of outstanding indie bands with heavy baggy-influenced anthem hailing from the uk. helter skelter is a band literally unknown to me, i cannot find any information on the web about them and i know my good friend "ricky" from 'madchester rave on' posted an album and a 3-track cassette version of this 12"  but without the longer version of the title track, well i happen to have the single on vinyl but it doesn't possess much identification either. then again their music explains rightfully where they belong and what scene they represent, whether we all agree or not the extended version and the album version are available for listening on mates!
