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 LONG RYDERS : Metallic BO (Full Tape), 1989

I'm again back on albeit only briefly, courtsey of Manchester Libraries...
Originally releaseed on cassette tape in 1988 though later reissued on CD with less tracks. Here's a copy of the tape in all its low fi glory !! (Includes live stuff, outtakes and radio tracks).

9/2/12 : Post now fixed, ie file does not now need a password to unzip the tracks.

PS It's hard to upload / download in a public library - all new donations of files gratefully received !!


  1. Sorry about that. Didn't realise the file was protected - therefore I had to e-mail the anonymous cntributor who sent it in - seems the password = password

    As soon as I can I will repost the file without the passworded protection.

  2. awesome thanks Skamanc.............great post.

  3. Job's a goodun - pasword no longer required..!!

  4. Fantastic Stuff !!!!
    Thank You So Much Skamanc.

  7. Another request for this to be uploaded again, please? Thanks!

  8. Can this be uploaded again please?
