#118 and From Another Side 02

Still on the all Australian run here, kicking off with a non album track for The Reels, then the debut for Tall Tales and True, latter day Little Murders, Howard I Know's firsty and a Double a-side on Phantom from Flaming Hands ( the other side "It's Just That I Miss You" and more Flaming Hands will be over on From Another Side #2 ).

I have to confess to being a little hazy on the details for Non Stop Dancers ( other than I do remember one other later single at least which was on EMI from memory ). Then it's some more Hunnas from Human Frailty - they will also be over on From Another Side,  with not one but two different 12" mixes of Say Goodbye.

Carnival Oof Lost Souls were from Sydney, again a hazy patch in the memory banks for these guys, but I reckon I'll go with my gut feeling which is telling me they had about 3 singles and in the end were very dancey....if I'm not mistaken. If I am mistaken well I am a goose, but that's nuthin' new.

Then we have the 2nd single from The Expression's self titled debut album. Something about this band always reminds me of Gavin Wood on Countdown and I can still hear him bellowing out the intro to this and WIth Closed Eyes. Don't get me wrong I love Gavin and recently read this great interview with him. ( Although I only wish they'd asked him about his acting appearance in "Houseboat Horror" ).

Our journey today  here ends with The Someloves and their 3rd single.

But the journey does continue - as I keep plugging  - more of these artists and related stuff over on the accompanying "From Another Side" blog.

From Another Side - a companion to this blog

Introducing a new companion blog to this one called "From Another Side" - featuring b-sides, album or 12" or cassette tracks, alternative versions, etc by the artists played on this blog.

With the idea mostly to play some b-sides ( or even the a-side in those times that I played the b-side to start with ) or 12''s by the artist ( that normally wouldn't be played here ) - or album tracks or cassette only tracks or demos -  ie to really dig around the rest of the collection & play them - always from my point of view that music is meant to be heard ( and why leave it lying around my house doing nothing ? ).

As a starting point I began looking through for extra tracks connected the most recent posts.

To that end "From Another Side #1" features additional tracks by Tiny Town, Pel Mel, Four Gods, Frontier Scouts, Idiom Flesh, Dorian Gray, Young Docteurs, The Cry and even a bonus Gobs track.

Check it out here.
