Random 80's Wednesday
Anna Domino - Tempting (from This Time, 1987)
Way of the West - Drum (7" Single, 1982)
Electric Guitars - Work (7" Single, 1981)
The Honest Johns - Grandfather of Gold (7" Single, 1986)
White & Torch - Who's Asking You (7" Single, 1982)
I don't know much about Anna Domino except she was on a cool label (Crepescule) and I love those fish earrings.
The Electric Guitars track is for Simon AKA Torchomatic, otherwise known as "god" to indie mp3 hunters of a certain age. Simon has a new and exciting blog called Coincidence Vs Fate. The Electric Guitars are now on iTunes thanks to Bristol Archive Records who have been re-releasing a lot of interesting 80's music lately.
I'm also featuring a Way of the West track to highlight the fact that their back catalogue is also available on iTunes, more information can be obtained here.
The Honest Johns track was emailed to me by Phil and as well as being a golden oldie, the band have also been releasing some new stuff which you can check out here. Thanks Phil.
I'm surprised I haven't featured anything by the excellent duo White & Torch before, so I'm fixing that this week.
My new singles arrived safely in the mail so I will be posting those once I have cleaned them up, probably later this week.
