Tribute To Bert Weedon – Weird Tales Tapes – 1980

Zounds – Angels / Ugly Vomit / Wolves / Can’t Cheat Karma / Holland Park – Bats / Forgery / Hands To Time / I Made It Happen / The Mob – Mirror Breaks / What’s Going On / Violence

The Mob – No Time / Clown / Youth / Crying Again / Androids Of Mu – Who Cares? / Atomic Explosion / White City / Seven Cities / Bored Housewives / Android Jam   

A request from some months back, the full cassette of early demo’s by these three bands that toured together on several occasions. Released on Zound’s mate and free festival scenester, Jonathan Barnett, Weird Tales cassette label.

The Mob tracks on this cassette have been remastered (and sound several hundred percent better than my old cassette copy) and released on CD (above) by Overground Records along with the later ‘Ching’ demo and some live tracks. This was the reason I did not put this material up last year, but after nine months of sales…here you are.

    Thanks Pengy – I can finally retire my wizened old tape of this…

    A friend of mine gave a copy of my tape to Steve Lake (Zoundz) a few years ago: apparently, he couldn’t even remember recording it!

    Really interesting artifact, this, showing where three quite seminal bands came from. ‘The Mirror Breaks’ in infant form – fucking brilliant. The backing vocals on ‘Youth’ – beautiful. And which came first, I wonder, the bass line from ‘Babylon’s Burning’ by The Ruts or ‘Ugly Vomit’ by Zounds?
