Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

The Flying Lizards - Money (That's What I Want)

The Flying Lizards were a British experimental rock band, who were formed in 1978 in London, England. They are best remembered as New wave one-hit wonders, thanks to their deliberately eccentric cover of Barrett Strong's 'Money'.

'Money (That's What I Want)' is a 1959 hit single by Barrett Strong for the Tamla label, distributed nationally on Anna Records. The song was written by Tamla founder Berry Gordy and Janie Bradford, and would become the first hit record for Gordy's Motown enterprise.

The Flying Lizards covered the song in 1979 and had a surprised hit with the record, reaching number 5 in the UK Singles Chart. The song helped the band extend their record contract with Virgin Records, which was initially for 2 singles, to include their self titled album. 'Money' would be the only real hit for the band but this single is seen as a good example of the increasing market of Synth Music that had been building from the late 70's that included bands such as Kraftwerk, Human League and OMD which is why I have included it here.
