I'm giving a new file sharing service a try; I would appreciate feedback on what you think of it. If it works out I'm hoping it can be a permanent solution to my Mediafire problem. (Per Request, New Rip) Manual Scan were from San Diego Ca. Founders Bart Mendoza, And Kevin Ring, were the mainstays of an ever changing lineup, that formed around 1980, and lasted till the early 90's. The band took it's name from a feature found on a Radio Shack police scanner. I believe this was their lone full length. It was released in the UK on the Hi-Lo Records label. There's a number of great tracks on here, that showcase how great Manual Scan really were. If your interested in learning more about the band, check out this excellent Interview of Bart Mendoza, at Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World. Here's a few other sites worth a visit: The San Diego Reader, and theirMyspace. Since 2010, Mendoza and Ring have been with The Shambles.
Shotgun Solution's main purpose is to share my passion for pre 1990's records and underground music. If your a band, label, etc. looking for exposure or if you want to contact me about anything to do with post 1990's music; check out my new blog, called Neoteric Melodies. For anything else or if your not into having your record featured here, you can contact me here, enjoy!
Unfortunately, all of my pre 2/19/12 online files were lost during the takedown of Megaupload. I hope to eventually fix all of my broken links in time. But until then, if there's something you really want to hear I’ll consider requests.
Records I'm Looking For
Here's a few records I wouldn't mind adding to my collection; some rare, some not so rare. Please click on the Records linkto see them. If you have an extra copy to sell me or maybe even trade; I would love to hear from you. Maybe you can even point me in the direction of someone who may have a copy to sell. I would prefer to "buy"; although I may still have a few things I might be willing to part with; my collection is pretty condensed these days.. If you think you might be able to help me out on any of these... Please Email Me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
