Yeah I'm meeting Spizz for some beers in town next week. Looking forward to that. He's gigging too... And yes - Soldier Soldier has been in my head now for 2 weeks! He wrote some great tracks; even the early ones stand the test of time. And he's made it up with Pete Petrol. Awww!

So you saw the poster on that spizz link with the shirts supporting? I wasn't sure if I made the link stand out. But I'm glad you spotted it.
:grin:

They may have been a poor mans Blondie but they still had some decent tunes. IMHO.

Have a look at Discogs

Cheers for that. It's The CD version that I'm after but even on this site they're asking for £100.

Even the 'Revolver' audience weren't interested back in the day. Oh, we'll. :smt012
