The Tigers - Savage Music

i was browsing in a local charity shop recently and saw a 7" single called 'ska trekkin' by a band called the this point i had never heard of the band but i bought the single anyway(despite not having a deck to play it on) because im an idiot and thought it may have been a ska version of the star trek theme!which of course it isnt.anyway after speaking to a few mates one of them sent me this link for what appears to have been their only album which i was told was only ever released in the usa.anyway what we have is a collection of nice ska-pop which im really enjoying listening to on this fine sunny day here in london.anyway give this a listen,enjoy some old school british ska circa 1979,and hopefully leave a comment.thanks!

Mikey Dread - The Peel Session

a 5 track peel session recorded (or at least broadcast)in 1982.ive not found much info on it except for the fact that the tracks listed on the back may possibly be the wrong tiles or in possibly the wrong order if you know what i mean.or not.ive seen it labelled in 2 different ways so im hoping that someone out there in interweb land might be able to point out any mistakes in the titles etc.anyway theres some great stuff on there so if your a fan of dub,and of mikeys work with the clash then youll like i hope you listen,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!

The Clash - Sound of The Sinners

the first of a few promised new clash posts.these come from their scandinavian tour in 1981.this one is from gothenburg from may 15th. had this to say "The Clash returned to the Scandinavium, Gothenburg where a year earlier they had produced an extraordinary performance, one of the best of 1980. Tonight’s does not quite reach those heights but is very enjoyable nevertheless, one of the best from this 1981 European tour. As with the 1980 concert a very good audience recording circulates of the whole of this concert too."
i think its a very good listen and its 26 tracks of clashy hopefully you'll listen,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!

The Jam - Down in the Tokyo Subway '81

this is an audience recording of the full show from the jam in tokyo sometime in 1981.i believe there is a better quality fm boot around but its not the full show.anyway its a good quality audience boot from the always brilliant 'jam'.its strange but listening to this you can almost feel the bands frustration at the very polite clapping at the end of each song from the tokyo audience.or maybe thats just me.but i think for fans of the band you've got to have this for your listen,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!

The Meteors - Peel Sessions

another post that does exactly what it says on the tin.a collection of peel sessions recorded between '83 and '85.12 songs in all for you to dance wildly around the house play loud,close the curtains so the neighbours cant see your attempts at 'dancing',enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!

Angelic Upstarts - Peel Sessions E.P

another lovely peel session for you all to enjoy today from south shields finest ,the angelic upstarts.formed originally in 1977 the band are still going strong and are still a great live act.10 tracks for you here to pogo to including 2,000,000 voices and last night another soldier.i dont know the dates each track was recorded but i do know they did their sessions between 1978 - 1980.but that wont detract from your enjoyment of some proper old school punk play this loud,pogo like its 1977 again,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!
ok thats weird.some of you may have had trouble with this link.i checked it now and there had been a lot of downloads on it but it was being a pain and not downloading so ive re-upped it and it seems ok now.dont know what happened there but er.......its probably technical and im crap at that sort of hopefully all is well!
