Protex (I can only dream single)

Protex were an Irish four piece from Belfast That formed around 1978. The band consisted of; David McMaster, (vocals and Guitar) Aidan Murtagh, (vocals and guitar) Paul Maxwell, (bass) and Owen Mcfadden on drums. Before the bands end in 1981 they released 1 single on The Good Vibrations label, and 3 for Polydor.(this being the second)
They also had a few tracks on comps such as Made in Britain, and 20 of another kind. An lp's worth of material titled Strange Obsessions was recorded, but as far as I know was never officially released. Sing Sing records recently released it, you can find it HERE!

Cyanide (Your Old Man Single)

I recorded this straight through my computer, my speakers are small so it's hard to tell how it sounds. Please let me know if it sounds bad, I'll switch back to my cd recorder.
Cyanide were from York, they formed sometime in the early 70's, and lasted till around 1979. In all they release three great singles,(this one being the last) and one LP(all worth owning). I think Fireball is the A side, but really there both a sides, so I'm following the sleeve. After the band ended, members went on to form groups such as; The Pullovers, DV & The Clients, and Maineeaxe. I was surprised that there wasn't more info on these guys.

The Explosives (Restless Native LP)

Sorry I haven't posted much lately. I literally have stacks of singles, and Lp's waiting to be posted, but For some reason I just haven't been that into it. Anyway, enough of my whining. Here's a great Powerpop LP to cheer me up from Austin, Texas's The Explosives. I only recorded five songs. Never be good for you, and I thought you were a man, are my faves here. The Explosives were around from the late 70's, till shortly after this was released. They also had a few singles, and a couple of tracks on the Live at Raul's album.I believe the bands active again in some form. There's more in depth information You can find on their Myspace. They also have a couple of Cd's that together have all, or most of the bands recorded output. You can find them HERE , and HERE .

The Young Fresh Fellows (The Fabulous Sounds Of The Pacific Northwest LP)

The Young Fresh Fellows formed around 1981 in Seattle Washington. Their Myspace claims this record was first released as a cassette in 1981, with a limited edition of 25 copies??? I'm not sure if that's true or not. If so, it took them three years to release it on vinyl. These guys have a good sense of humor, play great 60's inspired Pop, and have many releases to their credit. If your interested in learning more about them, this Wikipedia page is a pretty good page to start.
