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

Spider - Between The Lines - Album

'Between The Lines' is the second album released by the US band Spider. 

Released in 1981 the second album is a more focused record than Spider's self-titled debut, so it's ultimately more enjoyable.

Their attitude doesn't sound quite so forced, and the arrangements are very pleasing, especially compared to the more chaotic first album.

Between the Lines also includes two tracks that were hits for other artists several years later: 'Change' (a moderate hit for John Waite) and 'Better Be Good to Me' (revamped by Tina Turner on her Private Dancer album).

01 - Change
02 - I Think I Like It
03 - Between The Lines
04 - It didn't Take Long
05 - Going By
06 - Better Be Good To Me
07 - Can't Live This Way Anymore
08 - Faces Are Changing
09 - Go And Run
10 - I Love

Devoid - In Void EP

I have to say that I know nothing on this band. 

I do remember that for some years myself and some friends send each other singles in the post of bands we thought we would each like. 

This is one of those singles that a friend from Italy sent me but I have to admit that I can not remember anything more about this.

Still this EP is a fine example of European 80's music that listening to again I just loved.

Hope you all enjoy it to.

Gleaming Spires - How to Get Girls Through Hypnotism

Gleaming Spires was a New Wave Pop group in the 1980s.

Performing as Bates Motel they were enlisted by brothers Ron and Russell Mael to be a part of the 1981-85 incarnation of their band, Sparks. After completing demos with neophyte producer Stephen Hague, principal members Leslie Bohem and David Kendrick (later of Devo) recruited fellow Sparks members Jim Goodwin and Bob Haag to form Gleaming Spires with the blessing of the Mael brothers.

The band released their single 'How To Get Girls Through Hypnotism' in 1982.

Can not find any other info on this single or if it charted. Any more info anyone.

OMD - Free Artefact - The Unreleased '78 Tapes

OMD released their second album 'Organisation' in 1980.

A 7 inch bonus EP entitled ‘Free Artefact - The Unreleased '78 Tapes’ were given away with the first 10,000 copies of the album.

The album came in a grey sleeve with a sticker stating 'Free Artefact - The Unreleased '78 Tapes'.

As well as a merchandising insert the bonus 7 inch EP  - omd dep 2 - featured some previously unreleased tracks.

The tracks were actually recorded during a gig at Eric's Club, Liverpool and feature a spoken introduction by Dave Fairbairn.

These tracks reflected OMD's early collage approach in which excerpts taken from radio and TV broadcasts would be cut and edited into songs. Once When I Was Six features dialogue taken from the TV drama series The Pallisers (1974) based on the the novels of Anthony Trollope.
