      • Jimi Hendrix - Live in Stockholm (1967-1969, US, jimi hendrix)
        Most of this album consists of radio recordings from Radiohus Studio, Stockholm, Sweden, 9/5/67. The last two songs are recorded live at the Konserthus, Stockhom, 1/9/69. Wizardo WRMB 333.
        The record is a bit scratchy.

        Jimi Hendrix - guitar
        Noel Redding - bass

      • Rhythm of Life - Soon - Summertime (1981, UK, pop)
        Between Josef K and his solo career, Pail Haig made two singles with Stephen Harrison under the name Rhythm of Life. To confuse us, Paul named his second solo album also Rhythm of Life.
        The 7" I have is 1 and A sided, both simple pop songs.

        A - Soon [3:00]
        1 - S

      • Fashion - Product Perfect (1979, UK, new wave)
        There are two versions of Fashion. This is the first version with singer/guitarist Luke James. The music at this time is a kind of scarce art rock. A synthesizer is used, but not to create a wall of sound as the later Fashion did. Luke's voice is unique.

        And there are two versions of

      • Rick Powell - Switched-On-Country (1970, US, electronic/country)
        Who was first, Gill Trythall or Rick Powell? Anyway, Mr. Trythall is definitely better, but this is also worthwhile listening to, especially for Steel Guitar Rag, Ruby, Kaw-Liga and I walk the line.

        Side one:
        1 Steel Guitar Rag
        2 Born To Lose
        3 Cattle Call

      • A Certain Ratio - I need someone tonite (1983, UK, funk)
        Both songs on this 12" are not available on a regular A Certain Ratio cd.
        The b-side is a rather pointless version of the Steve Wonder song Dont you worry bout a thing. It's exactly the same... But a nice curiosity.

        1 - I need someone tonite [5:39]
        2 - Dont

      • Bryan Ferry - As the world turns (1977, UK, pop)
        What the @#$%& does BF on this blog...?
        It's not about Bryan Ferry, it's about Robert Fripp. He plays on the b-side. This is in the same period as he played on Heroes of Bowie. Fripp didn't have his own band at that time.

      • Bartok - Insanity (1982, UK, new wave)
        Bartok was John Grant and Simon Werner of punk band the Straps with Rat Scabies of the Damned and on track 1 Jah Wobble.
        They only made this 12".

        1 Insanity [2:45]

      • Colour Box - Breakdown (1982, UK, new wave/synth pop)
        Colour Box had a hit with The Official Colourbox World Cup Theme in 1987. They had even a bigger hit that same year under the name M|A|R|R|S (in collaboration with A R Kane) with Pump up the Volume.
        But this is their first single from 1982 (12" version, BAD 215).

      • A Certain Ratio - Greetings Four (1986, UK, new wave/funk)
        Almost all the work of A Certain Ratio is issued on cd. Almost. I have some recordings that are only available on 12". I will post them and I start with Greetings Four. The first song, The Runner, is never released on cd. The 12" came out on The Italian label Materiali Sonoti, based in San

      • The Danse Society - There is no shame in death (1980, UK, new wave/electronic/gothic)
        The first 12" of the Dance Society.
        What kind of music would they have made if there were no echo machines?

        1 - There is no shame in death [12:19]
        2 - Dolphins [3:06]
        3 - These frayed edges [4:18]

      • Genesis - BBC master dat (1972, UK, symphonic rock)
        In my post of Supersister live in Meerlo I mentioned that Genesis was playing at that festival too. A Genesis fan club picked this up, they have a list of all the Genesis performances, but the concert at the Midsummer Pop Festival 1972 in Meerlo was not on that list, even not on the gig list of Phil

      • Vinyl flexi's (1982-1983, UK, new wave)
        In a previous post I requested some rips of Vinyl magazine flexi discs.
        Toon from Belgium was kind enough to send me those.
        I hereby share them.
        Thanks to Toon!

      • Another Absurd Record (1979, UK, new wave/weird)
        In October I posted Gerry & the Holograms on Another Absurd Record.
        Without me knowing it, the guy(s) of Mein Walkman Ist Kaputt posted in November six other releases of that label.
        I just found out.

        I have to do this, it costs too much data traffic.

      • Anthology of Dutch Electronic Tape Music Volume 2 (1966-1977, NL, electronic)
        This double-lp is volume 2 of Anthology of Dutch Electronic Tape Music. I posted Volume 1 (1955-1966) last week.

      • Barry Andrews - Rossmore Road (1981, UK, pop)
        Barry Andrews was founding member of XTC (1977-1978).
        In 1981 he formed Shriekback with David Allen (Gang of Four) and Carl Marsh.
        In between he played with Robert Fripp's League of Gentlemen and had his own band Restaurant for Dogs. From this period dates this solo 7".

      • Bakersfield Boogie Boys - Okie from Muskogee (1980, US, new wave/weird)
        On this 12" the Bakersfield Boogie Boys covered the red neck Merle Haggard song Okie from Muskogee in a way Devo did with (I can't get no) Satisfaction.
        Get off my cloud (Rolling Stones) and I get around (Beach Boys) got a more Flying Lizards like treatment, not at least caused by the

      • Synapse (1976-1978)
        Old electronic music magazine Synapse on-line.
        I found this news on Matrixsynth, a nice blog for synth nerds.
        Articles about Kraftwerk, Tonto (world's largest synthesizer), Moog, Zappa and Fripp, focusing on the use of electronic equipment and lots of dated advertisements.
