V.I.P's / Urban Disturbance Split Single

The Rok Record Label released as many as 10 split singles, they all looked the same, and featured a different band on each side, it's a classic series. I don't own all of them, but I read somewhere there were 10 of them. I previously posted three other singles from the V.I.P'S, if you would like to know more about the band, or just want to check out the other records, you can find them: Here, Here, and Here. The flip side, is Swindon's Urban Disturbance; I think this was their only release. Band members were: Barry 'Baz' Silvester (vocals/Guitar) Steve Carvey (drums) Tone Control (guitar/vocals) and Jonny Stephens aka Walter Malone, (bass) who later went on to bands such as: The Cucumbers, and Meat Beat Manifesto.

Thanks for the links, I spent an hour on that site last night,cool stuff. The rip thing is debatable, I nail one once in a while; but I'm always experimenting, so the quality of my rips vary.Thanks again Bruce.
