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

Nightmares In Wax - Birth Of A Nation

It was only after rehearsing in 1977 with some friends that Pete Burns realized he really did have a powerful singing voice, and his first band was an outfit he formed with friends Julian Cope, Pete Wylie, and Phil Hurst.

Dubbing themselves The Mystery Girls, they played only one gig (opening for Sham 69 at Eric's in Liverpool in November 1977) before disintegrating.

Burns returned in 1979 with a new band, Nightmares in Wax, featuring a gothic post-punk sound, with backing from Hurst, keyboardist Martin Healy, bassist Walter Ogden, and guitarist Mick Reid.

Nightmares in Wax played their first gig at Eric's in February 1979, and were signed to the associated Eric's Records label, although their only recording, a three-track 7 inch EP entitled 'Birth of a Nation', was released in 1980 by Inevitable Records.

Two 12-inch singles were released featuring tracks from the 'Birth Of A Nation' single.
The first featured the two tracks from the EP, 'Black Leather' and 'Shangri-La', while the second featured all the tracks and was released in 1985).

The EP featured 'Black Leather', which halfway through turned into K.C. & the Sunshine Band's 'That's the Way' (a song later revived by Dead or Alive).
