Durutti Column - Pandora's Music Box 1983 (UK, new wave) 
Tuesday, August 7, 2007, 06:08 PM - Music, - UK, English
Durutti Column was Vini Reilly on guitar and Bruce Mitchell on drums.
Vini was often asked by Martin Hannett as part of The Invisible Girls to assist on guitar, for instance on Pauline Murray and The Invissible Girls and on John Cooper Clarke's Snap, Crackle & Bop.

The band's name is derived from the most famous column of anarchist fighters during the Spanish Civil War. It was "led" by Buenaventura Durruti from mid-1936 until his death on November 20 of that year. The column was instrumental in holding Madrid for the Republic in the face of the falangist uprising. A 1967 Situationist International poster included the phrase "The Return of the Durutti Column", which eventually became the title of the group's first album.(wikipedia)


5 1/2 songs (ran out of tape again) 19'47"

Siouxsie + Banshees - Pandora's Music Box 1983 (UK, new wave/gothic) 
Tuesday, July 31, 2007, 06:30 PM - Music, - UK, English
Siouxsie with a Beatles cover, I wonder why, it's not good or special and the key doesn't fit her.
The band got their name from Edgar Allan Poe's Cry of the Banshee.
Anton Corbijn is mentioned in a announcement.

Another Absurd Record (1979, UK, new wave/weird) Re-upload 
Sunday, July 22, 2007, 12:27 PM - Music, - UK, English
A re-upload, but the original post was not mine. It was on Mein Walkman Ist Kaputt, but something happened there, not only his walkman, but all the older posts are kaputt. Zakey asked me if I could post those files. Of course, your demand is my service. And I included both sides of Gerry + the Holograms (an older post of mine) and 48 chairs (also a download from Mein Walkman Ist Kaputt, I think) in it.



Blah Blah Blah - In The Army
Eddie Fiction - UFO 2
48 Chairs - Snap It Around
48 Chairs - Psycle Sluts
Gerry + the Holograms - Gerry + the Holograms
Gerry + the Holograms - Increased Resistance
Mothmen - Does It Matter Irene?
Cairo - I Like Bluebeat (version)
Naafi Sandwich - Slice Two

On WFMU you can find both sides of the Blah Blah Blah single.
