Acme Attractions (Anyway Single)

Acme Attractions were a four piece from Lewsey Farm, Luton,  UK. Unfortunately, I couldn't find much else about them. I read 500 copies of this single exist? They released a second single under, Bonnie Parker & Acme Attractions, on Orchid Records, in 1981. They may have changed their name to The English Dream.

The Mix (Break Up Shake Up EP)

a repost by request, originally posted 1/24/09, new rips and scans.
The Mix were a three piece from Nanaimo, B.C.; that were around from the mid to late 80's. I can't find any other releases for the band but A Few You Tube Videos show the mix playing more polished material, live and in the studio, so they may have released something else. Sadly, one of the videos mention that Gerrit Swart, may have passed away.
