The Roulettes (The Roulettes)

The Roulettes were a studio band who originally went by the name Laguna. Based in LA, band members were originally from Boise ID, I'm pretty sure this was their only release. Sadly,Bart Bishop (Vocals, Guitars, and Organ) passed away a couple of years ago. I found THIS PAGE, set up by his son Graham, where you can donate money to a non profit organisation, called Green For All. Other band members were : Jim Lowry, (Bass) Jeff Holman, (Drums) and Tom Mcmeekan (Lead Guitar, and back up vocals).

The Corsairs (Today E.P.)

Here's a great E'P' from L.A's The Corsairs. I couldn't find much info, on the band, mostly just opinion.Other than this, a second single was released on their own "Pirate records" label in(1986)titled, Love On The Run. A comp titled Idealistic Youth, compiling some California 80s Mod bands has two Corsairs tracks: Round And Round, and Love On The Run. If your interested, you can pick one up at The Bomp Store; Better hurry though, the vinyl is only a 500 pressing. As always, please feel free to enlighten me. The band was: Allen Shalby, (Vocals, Bass, Piano, and Guitar) Steve Hartnell, ( Guitars, And Vocals) and Greg Paul Smith (Drums, and Vocals.

NewToys (Say It LP)

A while back I posted a single from Buffalo N.Y.'s The Toys. Some time around 1982, they changed their name to the Newtoys, released this classic LP, and relocated to Staten Island until they called it quits in 1984. You can check out their single HERE, along with more detailed information on the band. Unfortunately, the links I had on the post appear to be broken. I did find this PAGE on Kevin K though.

Taking A Break

Sorry I haven't posted anything for a while; I've been taking a break.I have a real love, hate, relationship with this site. Last month I was ready to pull the plug, and erase the whole thing; and then I thought, maybe I should step back, and not be so hasty. I realised it would be a shame to wipe it out, especially after putting so much time into it,( time that I should have been spending with my family). I literally have piles of records picked out to post, but for some reason, I've lost my inspiration. I'm hoping a hiatus, will help me to regain some of the fire I once had. I have a question??? If it turns out, that this is indeed the day of our demise. what is the last song you would like to hear before your DOOM!
