The Badbeats (Tip Of My Tongue)

(per request, repost from 12/11/2008, new rips)
   The Badbeats  were  a New York power pop group formed in 1976 by Bill Kern, and Barry Knoedl. They began recording songs that were written but never released by The Beatles. John Sheridan was invited to play Drums, and this their first single was released in 1979; It contains two of the most obscure songs from the Lennon/McCartney catalog. The Band was a bit of a mystery, none of the band members names appeared on the record, or the picture sleeve; even the picture on the sleeve obscured their faces. Ray Knoedl, Barry's older brother was included in the picture even though he does not play on the record. If you would like to read more about the band you can check the out Here. Believe it or not you can still buy this record; it's available for the small sum of 10.00, pick one up Here. I bought one yesterday to replace my old tired copy. They also have a number of other vinyl, and Cd releases for sale.
