OBQ
Vs HOC
C 2.24 2:26 What happened when OBQ visited HOC.
THE OBLIGATORY FREEDOM FOUNDATION

OR POSSIBLY "QUIET LIFE"
I don't actually remember ever recording them but found the evidence undeniably lingering on one of my 4-track tapes.

C 3.86 4:12 Vocals by Rob Croucher, the man who "arranged" some of The Waltons' gigs in Holland in 1987 and who, I hear, some people are still looking for.
THE THREE AMIGAS

There wasn't three of them, they wern't girls and they didn't like each other. So I am guessing an ironic band name then.

D 6.88 7:30 These four songs are probably what passes for Four Marys' archive material but in fact came from the bowels of Cheesybits' very overstretched Amiga 1200 running Music X and the Aura sampling software and conected to some very basic equipment including:
  • A "Portable" Elka Organ
  • Roland TR-505 Drum Machine
  • A Very Dodgy Fretless Bass
  • A Mandolin
  • Half a Recorder
  • A Hohner Melodica

A Minutes Silence for John Peel

This is exactly what it says on the cover. A minutes slightly breezy silence recorded outside my mum's house in Ventnor on the night that I heard of JP's death

D 4.37 4:46 These two tracks were recorded in 1982 just before Mr Pieces of Lactage joined Loony Tunes and represent some kind of Pumphouse Gang/Smeggy and the Cheesybits crossover. Both these songs were popular Smeggy and the Cheesybits songs with "lyrics" by Gary Cayton (later frontman of King Kurt). Here they are given a funk/dub treatment including Mr Pieces singing in some bizarre public school/Rasta accent that is so bad it's bordering on racism. This version of Hunchback later became the B-Side of Petit Amour's single (can anybody remember what the A-Side was?) where Gary wasn't credited at all.

Twice
Daily
E 3.24 3:32 The Dead Man Band were the band that went on after Nab Funk at their first gig. Some would say that this makes them the "headline act" whereas Nab Funk maintain that they only went on first so that the bar wouldn't be shut by the time they finished. Afectionately know as "The Henwick Hitters" by Nab Funk - the two bands shared a bass player so they couldn't be too disparaging. I am appalled that I taped over the rest of the "Hitters'" set - probably because I couldn't afford a cassette. Though I seem to remember that their set consisted purely of cover versions so Nab Funk had every right to feel superior. This song was a solo performance of the Adge Cutler and the Wurzals' scrumpy and western classic "Twice Daily" played and sung by Colin Penn. As far as I know this was the only gig that The Dead Man Band ever played.

While we are on the subject, if anybody has a copy of Nab Funk's second gig (this was the long boring one) can they please let me know.
SumKunt with a Guitar

SumKunt with a Guitar was a performer that gigged in the mid '80s. Usually a solo performer, he occasionally performed with backing musicians (SumKuntz with Guitars) or to a backing tape. He may, on first hearing, come over as some kind of middle class twat, but let me assure you that he is very street; witness the arbitrary use of the 'z' character and the totally unnecessary capital letter.
