Here's a double a sided split single, with a couple of Canadian bands from the Vancouver area. Each side is represented by a different band, on a different label. The Promises later released a 12" single in 85 with the songs, "Shark and Yesterdays Girl". I read They later became The Last Corvairs. They have a track on the Molson Canadian Homegrown Volume IV comp from 1990. I really couldn't find anything else on either band. Enjoy!
The Dials were a Middlesex, England five piece; around from 1978-1980. They recorded a second single titled, "Get Up and Dance". The My Life's A Jigsaw Blog posted it a while back. If you want to check it out, you can find it Here. Neil Howes and Jeff Hemsley, later ended up in Thirteen At Midnight.

God's Lonely Men were a Salo, Finland three piece that formed in 1986. They named themselves after the Lurkers tune or possibly the Lp title, not sure . They released this full length, two singles and and a few comp tracks before disbanding in 1992. On this Lp's insert, they list themselves as a three piece but show four pictures? At any rate, it's a solid offering with a number of memorable songs. A brief re-form in 1999 yielded a mini album titled, "This World" in 2000. I haven't seen any evidence of further activity. Enjoy!

The Standbys were a San Diego, California, four piece; that formed in 1979. They released this ep in 1980. I read they released a full length titled, "Buy Now or Die Dumb" but I couldn't find proof of it's existence . They called it quits in 1985.
