Happy Century !!
The 100th being made up of ten 10-inch records - 10 squared if you like...
Firstly it's Bart & his "other" friends - a 1999 Darla Bliss out ( ie reworkings of earlier CM songs - self confessed by the band as "blurring the lines with Hydroplane "), followed by some 'Robin & Friends' - a 10 from the Filigree & Shadow album
Rather complex with the Clash thingy - the actual vinyl from today was the triple 10" reissue "Super Black Maket Clash", though the original Robber Dub orig came out on the Blackmarket Clash" 10 back in the day... confused...don't worry about it !!
We also have 3 Mushroom 10" ( so called ) Mini Albums released pretty much at the same time - "Cut Lunch" from Models, "Dexterity" from Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons and "The Sports Play Dylan ( and Donovan )" by The Sports.
Also worth an explanation is the Pel Mel track, this time being from a French double 10" compilation called "Entrave et Etouffment ", re-releasing tracks from the M-Squared label in Europe ( in 1982 ), Click Click having come out here in Australia on the M Squared comp "A Selection" ( the French comp also features for some unknown reason, one extra Severed Heads track that never came out on M Squared in the guise of Lambourghini, the original version of Petrol, featuring Fiona Graham from The Systematics on vocals ).
Mark E & Friends follow with a track from the Slates 10", and TV 21 ( very much sounding like an Ian Broudie production ). Hot on their heels is the 10 inch Extended Version of Can't Help Myself from Flowers when they were still called Flowers in Aus ( ie before they were Icehouse ) - and a special hats of to Peter Doyle ( the original East End Butcher himself ) for playing this one Monday night in 1980 on JJJ on his "New Releases" show.
That's all to report, enjoy :)
