THE ILLUSION - st LP 69 w Together (As A Way Of Life) LP 69 w If It's So LP 70

New Better Rips:  Please note the earlier post this week of this band had a buzzing noise.  Please replace previous downloads and for the bands: Isle of Man, Friction Groove, Ball and Pivot.  I will repost and remaster also Illusion band with the female singer soon as that had some noise.  This band is true to their name having some songs having an illusion effect part of psych rock like early Floyd.

Groceries - EP 82 w Where Are You Now? CD 79-84

I grabbed this picture from a facebook page of a band with similar name--hoping it is the same as no covers shots could be found.  A big thanks to Slidewell who posted me the links this week under comments as I had never heard this band before and they are good.

Pete Shelley - Sky Yen LP 80 w Homosapien LP 81 w XL1 LP 83 w 84 EP w Heaven And Sea LP 86

REPOST Request:  The version of XL-1 album has a very old computer program as last track that you could somehow play along with software to get two bonus 'DUB' tracks but luckily someone already translated the songs for you.  Thanks to Felipe at defunct ISISKP blog for that version.

Cool sounding hard edge Industrial-type stuff but only two songs.  Difficult Music like Skinny Puppy.


Post punk kind of more dance though.
NEW LINK (buzz fixed):

BRAVE COMBO - Polkatharsis LP 87

One of those awesome eclectic folk bands from Minneapolis.  Got the 'Crazy Serbian Butcher's Dance" to give you an idea...Polka with me Punker!

Burning Rome - st LP 82

REPOST Request:  Classic music from a classic year.

Dirt Fishermen - Glenn's Car LP 90

This one loaded with promo material and probably quite popular in its heyday by all the pop's I cut out from D.J.'s droppin' the needle but not too bad.  Very 90's sounding.


Another band who was good enough to make it to the Best Buy record bins when they had those in the 80's.  Very cool band!!  That's because Ali McMordie from Stiff Little Fingers plays bass!!!!!
New Better Rip (no more buzz/noise sound):


Impressive release here in the post punk style.

ISLE OF MAN - st LP 86

Great band name, theme and related song concepts--this one speaks to me!  LOL (not that funny tho')
New Better Rip (eliminated the buzz from noise):

LANGUAGE CLUB - Babel bw Conversations LP 86

How about that, I had this band ready to rip and I got a comment on one of my 80's Gig flyers groupings I had uploaded the other day on facebook that was for Agent Orange/GONE and this opener band from MN.  The comment was from Mike Palm the lead singer of AO who commented on how good the GONE set was and I also remembered this, so I told him I was going to post this.
