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 !

Gang of Four

Whilst in Central Manchester for an apointment last week I picked up several decent recordings for the total of a tenner, one of them being a Gang of Four compilation. While uploading this, I thought it'd tie up some loose ends by adding the other files I had on the hard drive, so here they are : a compilation, a live set, an album & an FM broadcast from Canada. A great, very underrated outfit & well worth a listen... http://rapidshare.com/files/358882607/Gang_Of_Four_-_A_Brief_History_Of_The_20th_Century.rar http://rapidshare.com/files/359044053/GangOf4-GangBang-Live1980.rar http://rapidshare.com/files/359044051/Gang_of_Four-Entertainment1979.rar http://rapidshare.com/files/359071655/GangOf4-Toronto1983_FM.rar


  1. Sorry Skamanc for being late on this one ... hadn't thought to check ya for Gang Of Four, not your usual kind of post but as you say very underrated, can never be too much of Gang of Four, which is why you'll find the whole web's offering of live or out of print Go4 (including yours) indexed at the megapost over here at edo's:


    Hope you find something you like, always check the comments for new recordings and re-ups, and leave a thanks in passing, cheers, Dave Sez.

  2. Many thanks Dave. I'll have a look over the weekend mate... this is one of the great things about blogging !

  3. Thanks very much for these - and thanks as ever to Mr Sez for the heads up...it's been a wee while since I last visited here..great blog; keep up the good work ;))

  4. Hi skamanc, just to let you know that after the Go4 megapost mentioned above went down, I've been reuploading Gang of Four rarities to darkcircleroom2.blogspot.com - see you there! Cheers, Dave Sez.
