    Cult Figures were a Birmingham four piece that formed in 1977. They released two three track EP's before disbanding in 1980. The band reformed in 2016. They released a number of quality EP's and two full lengths before Gary Jones sadly lost his fight with cancer in 2022. If you want to check them out further, here's some links.

The Snapshots - No Jane Single

    The Snapshots were a Westchester, N.Y. outfit that were around, (I'm guessing) from the late 70's till 1983. A three piece when this self released effort was recorded, Robert Mag was later added to take over vocal duties. There's a rare stamped paper sleeve that exists. Of course, mine isn't one of them. There was a second release, a flexi given away at shows titled, "Wish me well / Oh Japan" from 1982. Big thanks to the Sing Sing Blog for doing the research on this one back in 2012. If you'd like to read the entire interview, you can find it here.

Dick N The Donuts - Saturday Night

 Once this one gets it's hooks in you; it's hard to get it out of your head. Super catchy chorus that will have your head boppin' in no time, plus a sing along on the B side, in case you feel so inclined. There's little info on these guys, other than being from Ontario, Canada. Credits on the record go to Bickerton and Waddington.  My copy is sleeveless, as most appear to be. I borrowed this picture of the sleeve from Discogs, so you can see what it looks like. As always, if any of you have info to share, it's most appreciated. I included Flac and MP3 versions as was suggested.
