A re-post per request, New Rips and Scans; originally posted 06/18/09 and 07/01/10,
I've been trying to catch up on some requests, if I forgot yours, let me know. I decided to include both singles, Enjoy!!
The Slowguns were a short lived four piece from Stockport England. The band consisted brothers, Peter and David Daulby, Terry Podmore, and various drummers.Their first single, released in 1978, was "T.V. Movie" backed with "American HeartBeat". The single garnered praise from John Peel, and was voted joint record of the week with The Not Sensibles "I'm in Love with Margaret Thatcher" in the English music journal Sounds.
The second single "The Time Is Right for Us" backed by "My Karma" was poppier and less angular than their first outing but met with little success. Internal dissent within the group caused them to split in 1980. An abandoned Lp, is said to exist but has yet to come to light.
