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 '79 Mod Revival & Beyond Part (4) : Lambrettas, Chords & Merton Parkas...
These albums, from some of the bigger names of the 79 Revival have the distinction of all having reached the UK charts, along with several related singles.... The Merton Parkas featured future Style Councillor & Midnight Runner Mick Talbot, while the Lambrettas were signed to Elton John's Rocket label. (Maybe he fancied one of them...) The Chords were Polydor label mates with The Jam & The Jolt. http://rapidshare.com/files/358296753/The_Merton_Parkas_-_Face_In_The_Crowd__Beggars_Banquet__1979_.rar http://rapidshare.com/files/358296756/The_Lambrettas_-_Beat_Boys_In_The_Jet_Age__Rocket__1980_.rar http://rapidshare.com/files/358089555/CHORDS_SoFarAway_LP.rar
