COLE YOUNGER AND THE KOOLETTES - 'Ice Cole Love'.



B-side of Cole's best single released on Logo Records 
in August 1981. A 1975 LP for Anchor Records is very 
much of it's time but all of his new wave era 45's are 
worth a listen with this mix of noisy punk guitar and 
killer pop hooks coming highly recommended.

JOHNNY AND THE SELF ABUSERS - 'Dead Vandals'.



B-side of their 'Saints And Sinners' single from 
November 1977 on the Chiswick label. Apparently the 
band wanted this released with their new name Simple 
Minds but Roger Armstrong at Chiswick hated it so 
they were told the labels had already been printed.

ANNIVERSARY - 'Give Me A Smile'.



A 4 track EP released on Aerco Records in August 1978 
by a rock/prog influenced trio. Three of the tracks 
don't stray too far from those influences, however 
the lead track 'Give Me A Smile' is an anti-punk rant 
with a backing track that is pure punk rock.

NIGHTSHIFT - 'She Makes Me Love Her (But She Don't 
Make It Easy)'.



Fantastic B-side of the debut single from August 1978 
by this Edinburgh based trio on Zoom Records. One of 
the band's later singles 'Don't Rush The Good Things' 
would be covered by Tina Turner in 1984.

SILVER MACHINE - 'Take Me In Your Arms'.



A custom pressing on the Hillside label from October 
1978. These teenagers from East Anglia give us two 
very different sounding tracks on this double A-side, 
one a pleasant pop ballad and this track an amped up 
punk/glam/rock hybrid.

SQUEEZE - 'Bang Bang'.



This is the under-rated Squeeze punk single from May 
1978 on A&M. Even the band didn't like it enough to 
include it on their 1982 '45's And Under' comp. Buy 
it on green vinyl to look at then pick up a black 
copy to play as it's a less noisy pressing.

THE FOUR KINGS - 'Rock 'n' Roll (Is Here To Stay)'.



Ramshackle pub rock released on Parole Records in 
November 1978. Around the time of this release they 
often gigged with fellow misfits and Parole recording 
artists Raped, though they were at a very different 
end of the misfit scale to the infamous glam punks.

THE ETERNAL SCREAM - 'How I Wish'.



The 2nd of two 45's released in July 1981 on their 
own Eternal label. Recorded at the renowned reggae 
studio Ariwa, though The Eternal Scream were more of 
a DIY post-punk thing. Features the guitar talents of 
Lol Hammond once of punk band The Revenge.

PHIL CANNING - 'Sell Out'.



Recorded at Woodbine St Studios in Leamington Spa and 
released on the studio's own label in July 1979. The 
backing band on this solid pub punker were Cheeky who 
would release their own similar sounding single for 
Woodbine St the following year.

BEE BEE CEE - 'You Gotta Know Girl'.



A highly collectable Scottish punk 45 from November 
1977 on REL Records. Bee Bee Cee were originally 
formed as covers band The Lurch but the addition of a 
few Ramones inspired originals saw them described by 
local press as 'Edinburgh's first new wave band'.

THE FADERS - 'Library Book'.



This is the better of the two tracks on The Faders 
only single released in June 1979 on Rip Off Records. 
Earlier that year The Faders were considered not punk 
enough by the makers of the film 'Shell Shock Rock'. 
'Library Book' suggests they may have got that wrong.

ELTON MOTELLO - 'Jet Boy Jet Girl'.



Lightning Records first released 'Jet Boy Jet Girl' 
in February 1978. With the song being considered 
unsuitable for radio this version with altered lyrics 
and an improved mix was made available a few months 
later but any airplay was still limited.
