THEE CYBERMEN (GOT A GROOVE EP)

I know ,I already posted one record from these guys but I really like this . I'm sure you wont mind, I hope this article is true, I would like to hear more from these guys. Garage, with a lot of attitude. Thee Cybermen formed way back in 1985 and have had many band members from Oswestry since their inception...
Inspired by The Who, The Prisoners and sixties music.
Over the past few years they have played numerous gigs
including two trips to Holland and two smaller UK tours both with
The Green Hornets from Portsmouth. They have played in London at The Archway Tavern, Brighton, Sailsbury, Portsmouth, and were one of the most popular garage bands in the UK during the mid to late nighties securing a record deal with Vendetta Records from Portsmouth, Alopecia Records from Oxford and Cave Records from Italy. The band also recorded a session for Mark Radcliffe on BBC Radio One in 1997 at Manchester. They were on the show as Mark Lamaar was a fan and had played the song 'That Girl' from the 'Gotta Groove 'ep. The session ended up with the singer naked! They recorded their singles and LP's at Toerag Studios in London where the White Stripes recorded in 2001. The band finally called it quits... following a gig in Oxford in 1998 due to band members moving to different parts of the country because of work commitments. The decision was recently made to reform last summer for a few gigs after Dan Price, who sings and plays lead guitar, had written a few new songs and felt the time was right to get back and see how things went. Thee Cybermen recently played at the Ex-service- man's Club in Oswestry for one night in August and one night over the Christmas holidays to a great response, so much so that the band will record again soon and do a few more gigs.

Thanks!! I've been looking for this one for a long time. I used to have this record but lost it somewhere. This version of It's All Gone is one of my favorite songs ever.
