James at Worthless Trash have introduced me to lots of great UK acts I’ve never heard before. Plummet Airline is just one of the many from his latest podcast(no. 3).
This is their second release and It’s Hard is an incredible catchy punk/powerpop gem that deserves alot more attention.
From Worthless Trash: “…included two future members of the band The Favourites (“SOS” etc) in Darryl Hunt and Duncan Kerr. In 1976 they’d headlined above the Sex Pistols at the 100 Club and released a single on Stiff Records while known as Plummet Airlines (with an ‘S’).“. Darryl Hunt was also a member of The Pogues. The b-side is easily forgotten.
My Time In A While
There was a double-Lp – On stoney ground realesed in the mid 80Â´s. The album contained demos, live recordings etc. Never heard it but if someone got a digital copy I would be very interested in trading it for some old swedish punk.
This and the Kursaal Flyers 7″ are two examples of records you can pick up for a couple of quid that most people would blank, except for those in the know of course! The B-side is OK, vocals a bit flat, different singer I think (Duncan Kerr probably).
First Steve and now you showing off with your picture sleeve, oh well that ‘State’ company sleeve is a lovely shade of blue!
It’s true, the blue IS nice.
Great 45. Gotta disagree, though … “My Time in a While” is a killer song. Cheers!
You just made my day (which is almost over) with “It’s hard”! Thanks.
