Here is half of this weeks post with the number one rated band in Australia at the time at first called Sherbet and for the later two albums I have posted this rip before as the Sherbs.  Tomorrow after I finish song labels I will post part 2 of this weeks post and it is the number one rated band in the Netherlands who also hold the distinction of first European band to make it in the USA followed by PKM out of Italy as previously posted.  Some nice studio trippy effects on each album here.

STARFIGHTERS - st 81 LP w In-Flight Movie LP 83

REPOST Request and ADD ON:  Got's to thank S.D. Joe and Dea Noa for pushing me over my comfort zone to innovation and a solution/good fix to my old rips from first year at this blog in 2008 when I didn't know how to record/rip vinyl (self taught and no books to be found back then) and would record too low and leave in the 'dead air' between tracks.  Last night I discovered a new lever on my software called 'Stereo FX" that I slid into to the left into the 'under zone' and fixed the bad sound.  I also once again used autodetect boost level (in this case 9/12 scale) to really make it right for loudspeaker duty).  S.D. let me know this was a bad rip and Dea got me started last week on Terminal White old rip with 5/12 software boost detected on auto to be ideal.  However after I did that she said the rip was still all in one channel or something and it pissed me off enough to help in my innovation here.  Sorry, Dea for my shitty knee-jerk reaction but I knew for a fact that since I don't have a right/left channel slide lever the only way that can happen is if my stylus adjust is way off (not the pressure dial but the side to side dial which should be same setting).  That could have happened but I would see it in my software as it shows both left and right wave forms.  Maybe that is why I went back to the stylus tip made for the S-120 and not the other brand I used from Stanton that fit but may have some 'needle' dimensions causing groove pressure.  It worked though as it was brand new and made the rerip for PRODIGY better.  Now turn this puppy up and never mind the lost high's.

Starshooter - Pin-Up Blonde 7 77 w Betsy Party 7 78 w Get Baque 7 78 w st LP 78 w Mode LP 79 w Toi, Moi, Nous 7 80 w Pas Fatigue (reissue 2004) LP

Here is a little treat for all the helpful feedback comments lately that are getting my collection in order with kind regards from Felipe at the defunct Isksp blog out of Brazil as I got all these from him and you can see it was a favorite band of his as these are very hard to find.

SPECIAL NOTE:  These three files are the same as last time posted however, I found a better 'Run Better Run LP 84" rip so you do need to download and replace songs 5-18 (all the label field are filled in on the new files--I never have time for this with my method).  REASON:  It is rare but it has happened a couple times and would last maximum of 5 records in a row before I would notice it but the DJ speed lever I have in the past occasionally bumped to fast so my old rip was too fast.  I usually catch it before next record and would redo it but my software can handle 4-5 records recording in a session and so that would be maximum length affected.  Has happened maybe 4 times over 5000 rips but you really have to bump it up almost halfway to notice speed change...it's used for DJ mixing.

The Franks - Complete discography (1996-2004)

REPOST Request:  Oi!/Punk/RnR from Sweden    Thanks to Bernando for post and here is what he said:
The most overlooked punkband from Sweden. The fact that they only got to release one 7'' and not even that one was on a Swedish label made me lose all hope in the Swedish scene. 16 song all in all and info about the songs original appearance is included in the upload. Post a comment if you like the song

TO DAMASCUS - Succumb LP w come to your senses LP 87

Got's to send a big thanks to teadoust who sent me this vinyl for a rip.  We have the earlier, rawer punk sound from the band and Sylvia Juncosa--the old SWA goddess per the accurate reviews above.  Check out teadoust blogs also as you can for any google icon you click of a member here although most don't have blogs.  Hey, next post is for you buddy!  Schroll down for some TEA, teadoust!

TEA - The Ship LP 75

I know nothing of this band but it has cool packaging and the singer reminds me of the Sensational Alex Harvey band singer but I bet a lot of singers nabbed that style.  Great distortion effects also.

LIGHTHOUSE - st LP 69 w Suite Feeling LP 69 w Peacing It All Together LP 70 w Thoughts Of Movin' On LP 71 w Sunny Days LP 72 w Can You Feel It LP 73 w Good Day LP 74

Decided to keep these vinyl.   What a wonderful band starting out with totally original 70's prog rock then finally making their way to the AM Radio hit parade with 'Pretty Woman' a song from my old K-tel compilations that I was kind of obsessed with for a while then my neighbor turned me on to those made for TV 70's CD's and we used to make fun of the vocals on this song w our best macho singing!

HERE AND NOW - Give And Take LP 78

A nod and thank you to one of my facebook vinyl groups who suggested this anomaly!  Cool stuff.

Felix Pappalardi And Creation - st LP 76

This was a promotional copy and who knows maybe they never got distribution but dang, cool style!


Some very cool and primordial percussion from these Illinois professors!


REPOST Request:  Once again another great Bobby Caldwell band!  Hard to believe the club I saw them at last year have already shuddered their doors.  I filmed every song and last I heard they were looking for more dates to play internationally.

VA - Thru The Back Door LP 80

REPOST Request:  Really cool compilation featuring the Donkeys first 7 (I posted all their stuff I had previously), Dalek i, Mark Kjeldsen, The Tearjerkers, The Blitz Brothers and Agony Column.
