#78 scratchy old Stephen

Pastel I mean....but that's how the Flexi sounds...

I guess it's sorta Pre-Creation Creation ! ie kicking off today with The Pastels from the "split flexi" with Laughing Apple - featuring of course a certain Mr Alan McGee - The Pastels getting a re-issue on Rough Trade afterwards..

Then some "Progressive Office Pools" in fact the b-side of the Models 2nd outing "Owe You Nothing", I always preferred "Progressive Office Pools" because it was more of a Duffield inspired keyboard weird romp akin to AlphaBravoCharlieDeltaEchoFoxtrotGolf as opposed to the prototype-punky-powerpop-post-Teenage Romance vibe of "Owe You Nothing"...so today you have to suffer that particular little prejudice of mine.

2 outings from Green Records - it's doyen of course a certain Mr Roger Grierson - with singles by The New Christs, the first I believe from that project by a certain Mr Rob Younger and another single by Naughty Rhthyms - one of the bands of the sub-ska scene of inner city Sydney in the early 80's, ie in the Allniters type sub set.

( Rushent of course at the controls with the Leaguers )

and Bring Phillip's 7", brought to you with all mid-80's the Sydney art college sensibilities they could manage !!

go on and enjoy :)

MATE:

Models - Owe You Nothing.

IT HAS TO GO UP.

One of my all-time faves.
I one offered a DJ $20 for the single when she played it in a club.
That was maybe 1982, I would have been 18 years old and $20 could buy you a block of flats.

Whaddaya say..?

baraholka - if you email me I'll send you an mp3 of both a & b side - save you $20 !!

Sidey,

That's the best offer I've had since 1982!

Only one thing = I'm on dial-up.
It'll block our email pipe for days and teh wife won't have a social life :-)

BUT HOLD THAT THOUGHT...

We're getting around to BroadBand eventually.

Cheers!

Barra.
