Thanks for this Gobshyte. I remember absolutely hating this when I first heard it but now I've mellowed a bit,I might like it now and as its Topper then its worth another chance. Cheers Mate.

Many thanks for posting this, as I hadn't heard it in years and years. Sadly, it sounds exactly as I'd remembered it sounding, and if I ever ease up in my judgmental ways and begin to like it, it will definitely fall under the category of "guilty pleasures!"

Thanks for sharing this. I've never even seen the cover of this before. Should be interesting.

Just bought the vinyl for $1.99 today but I'll probably listen to this CD rip!

Hi, could you please make this available again :)
I've been wanting an MP3 version for years and somehow missed this page :(
Thanks

Another one of my vinyl collection replaced by your kindness.
Suspect this will only be listened to the once, just like the vinyl was.

Gob, I just saw your request for the Flesheaters album. Yes I do have it. Sorry for the delay as my comment notification was going to a disabled email account. I will upload it for you this evening when I get home from work. Sorry.

Thanks for this. I have an old vinyl copy and am looking forward to listening to this again as it's been quite a while now since I last heard it. I've got some (bad) photos somewhere I took of the Topper Headon Band playing live that I must put online one of these days....

Thanks so much for this - I've got the original vinyl which is pretty battered now so to hear it spanking new again is great! Been trying to get my hands on a CD for years. You've just made my day! Cheers!

Thanks so much. Drumming Man is just a wonderful treat for the ears - it should have been a massive hit.

Hey - many, many thanks for this - I'll go against the flow and admit to actually really liking this even if it was just released to feed Toppers habit... - bought it as soon as it originally came out on the strength of the first single and listened to it over and over - been thinking about it recently (probably with all the Clash talk and Topper being back in the limelight again) so been searching for a CD / MP3 version and you have saved the day....
