Oh no!!!! Another KILLER punk/powerpop record is beeing posted. Will it never end? Hopefully not. The First Steps first 7inch. And for good reasons The Beat Is Back have been comped on one of the best compilation series ever: Back To Front.
“This band released two classic singles, one in 1979 and the other a year later. The band owned the ‘English Rose’ label themselves and released both singles on this label.”
Label: English Rose
The Beat Is Back.mp3
She Aint In Love.mp3
Let’s Go Cuboids.mp3
THE ‘BEAT IS BACK ‘IS A CLASSIC, BUT THE OTHER 2 ARE INFERIOR BY A MILE, THERE OTHER 7″ IS FAR BETTER.
CHEERS CORPUS 77
Yeah the b-side dosen’t really hold up to The Beat Is Back. But I still enjoy them! Especially Let’s Go Cuboids.
I hope your commitment to the cause never ends either, you deserve a special Blue Peter badge for all these fantastic records you’re letting us hear. Very much appreciated :)
Thanks for the very nice comment Rich :)!!! That helps alot to keep the spirit alive. I’ll do my thing and I love it but then it’s much aprreciated to read what people thinks about the stuff that’s been posted. If you love it then that’s great, let me know. And if you hate it then shot baby. I have no problems with that either.
When this blog inspire people like Erich over at Good bad music for bad, bad times!(check the link to the left) to start blogging again that makes me really happy!
Damn neato! Let’s Go Cuboids is a terrific song.
Question: is She Ain’t in Love supposed to fade at the end of the song like it does here? Or is it a mistake?
