The Distractions (Your Not Going Out Dressed Like That)

(per request, repost's from 3/12, and 8/12 of 2009, new rips, and scans)
   I've had a number of request's for these two records. So I figured while I was at it, I may as well add the awesome "Time Goes By So Slow Single", I wanted to post it some day anyway. Rather than lump the three records together I decided to make them separate downloads, Enjoy!!
   The Distractions were from Manchester England. Originally a four piece, in 1975 the line up was college friends Mike Finney(vocals) and Steve Perrin (guitar), along with Lawrence Tickle(bass) and Tony Trap(drums). Towards the end of 1977 the band became a five piece. Bass duties were taken over by Pip Nicholls, and Guitar by Adrian Write, along with the addition Alec Sidebottom on drums who had previously played with the Purple Gang in the 60s.
In all The Distractions released  an LP titled "Nobody's Perfect", an Ep or two, and a hand full of singles before calling it quits in 1981. The band recently reunited, and released an Ep titled "Come Home" in 2010, and a new full length in 2012 titled "The End Of The Pier". You can check out their official website linked below for more info, news, and merchandise .
