Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

The Cure - Seventeen Seconds & Rarities 1979/80

I was sent a copy of this with the request that I listen to it & consider blogging it. Not a bad album as it happens, though I'm already familiar with this stuff as some of my muckers were into it back in the day. This post consists of the original "Seventeen Seconds" album tracks along with a 2nd cd's worth of 1979-80 rarities ("Cult Hero" vinyl, live tracks & a home demo). http://rapidshare.com/files/352893984/Cure_17Seconds_1980.rar http://rapidshare.com/files/352882167/The_Cure_-_17Sec__Rarities_1979-1980.rar For Foxy & Acky
