Protex (I can only dream single)

Protex were an Irish four piece from Belfast That formed around 1978. The band consisted of; David McMaster, (vocals and Guitar) Aidan Murtagh, (vocals and guitar) Paul Maxwell, (bass) and Owen Mcfadden on drums. Before the bands end in 1981 they released 1 single on The Good Vibrations label, and 3 for Polydor.(this being the second)
They also had a few tracks on comps such as Made in Britain, and 20 of another kind. An lp's worth of material titled Strange Obsessions was recorded, but as far as I know was never officially released. Sing Sing records recently released it, you can find it HERE!

I just tried it Jay, and it worked fine. Maybe it was something with Megaupload.
