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 !

EA80 : Licht

Many thanks to Herr Philippe for some recent files he sent in to the blog. This post features EA80, whom he describes as "coming from Monchengladbach. They are Germany's longest living Punk band, since 1979. You can hear a strong Joy Division influence, but EA80 are punkier".

I quite like this stuff - my favoured German listening never really got any further than Can & Neu, but depending on comments & thanks messages left for Philippe, I may post some more files. 


  1. HEY SKAMANCH- a "primary rock" of german punk- i`m glad. the problem:FC.ST.PAULI on saturday against mönchengladbach........
    EA80 has great attitude`s - the refusal against the musicindustry and all the stuff-really punk and rebel perspective..
    NICE to see-another german in the boat-hallo lieber philippe, laß uns versuchen den jungs hier zu zeigen, das deutsche ganz o.k. sein können :-)
    it means:german able to behave decently

  2. Complete EA80 discography with all their sideprojects, lots of live bootlegs, videos and other stuff to be found here:
