Sex Pistols - Something Else
(Virgin VS-240 Swe-79 VG+ 175:-)

The most famous (and infamous) band of the late 70s punk scene. Their rebellious image combined with a commercial sound (partly thanks to producer Chris Thomas) created some of the most memorable moments of the 70s - both musical and otherwise.

Swedish release on red/green Virgin labels. Typo on A side stating 'Vocols': Sid Vicious.
Silver King Rhythm Band - My Balls are Blue
(Dangerzone D-0000001 US-81 VG+ 225:-)

The Silver King Band was formed in 1980 from a loose collective of musicians based in St.Pete, Florida. By mid '81 the group consisted of Flo Mingo, Rock Bottom and Barry Cuda (known then as St.Petey Twigs!). They went to Scandinavia in late '81 and continued to tour and record for the next four years. In 1984, after a burst of fame overseas, they broke up.

Original US pressing on BLUE vinyl. The sleeve has been signed by the band.
Simon & Garfunkel - A Hazy Shade of Winter
(CBS EP-6156 Ger-67 EX 225:-)

Simon & Garfunkel were an American folk rock duo consisting of singer-songwriter Paul Simon and singer Art Garfunkel. They were one of the most popular recording artists of the 1960's and became counterculture icons of the decade's social revolution.

Original German EP; containing "A Hazy Shade of Winter", "The 59th Street Bridge Song", "A Simple Desultory Philippic" and "A Poem on the Underground Wall".
Skrewdriver - You're so Dumb
(Chiswick NS11 UK-77 VG+ 300:-)

Formed in 1976 as a non-political UK punk band - who at their label's urging became skinheads during the second wave of skinheads in England - Skrewdriver became known for attracting violence at their shows and none of their Chiswick releases did very well in the UK charts. They broke up in 1979.

Original UK pressing; b/w "Better Off Crazy".
Slade - Get Down and Get With It
(Polydor 2058 123 Nor-71 VG+ 225:-)

Deafeningly loud and cheerfully sleazy, Slade stomped out any of the sexual ambiguity of glam with their big-booted hooks and guitars, creating some of the biggest U.K. hits of the '70s.

With this 4th single and it's A-side sounding as the Beatles playing Little Richard, Slade will find the path to the charts in May 1971 (n°16 in UK). Original Norwegian single, b/w Gospel according to Rasputin, in an unique picture sleeve.
Slade - Take Me Bak 'ome
(Polydor 2058.231 Nor-72 VG+ 225:-)

West Midlanders Slade became a sensation in their homeland with their anthemic brand of glam rock in the early '70s, as they scored a staggering 11 Top Five hits in a four-year span from 1971 to 1974 (five of which topped the charts).

Original Scandinavian single; b/w "Wonderin' Y".
Smiths - Barbarism begins at Home
(Rough Trade RTD-021 Ger-85 EX 250:-)
The Smiths were one of the great bands of the '80s, driven equally by Johnny Marr's dexterous guitar riffs and Morrissey's fiercely witty wordplay.

Rare German-only limited edition 2-track vinyl 7" single with a wide centre, includes "Shakespeare's Sister". Housed in a paper picture sleeve featuring the artwork of Viv Nicholson which only appeared on the Italian & German 7" singles and on the 12" release elsewhere.

The sleeve on this copy has two cataloging stickers, otherwise only has very light storage marks with the vinyl in Excellent condition.
Smiths - William, it was really Nothing
(Rough Trade RT-166 Swe-84 EX 250:-)

The Smiths were one of the great bands of the '80s, driven equally by Johnny Marr's dexterous guitar riffs and Morrissey's fiercely witty wordplay.

Original Swedish single in textured picture sleeve; b/w "Please Please Please let me get what I want".
Sonics - Love-Itis
(Piccadilly 225 US-67 EX 300:-)

Of all the garage bands that made a glorious racket in the 1960s, few if any were louder, wilder, or more raw than the Sonics, a Tacoma, Washington quintet whose over the top style, complete with roaring guitars, pounding drums, and the fevered howls of lead singer Gerry Roslie, anticipated the mania of punk and pushed rock & roll deep into the red zone during their 1963-1966 heyday.

Original US pressing; b/w "You're in Love".
Stranglers - Sverige
(UA UP-36459 Swe-78 EX 175:-)

The Stranglers formed in the southern England village of Chiddingfold in 1974, just as the established pub rock scene was dying and promoters were willing to give any unknown band a break, simply to try and establish a new hierarchy. Thus it was that as the first stirrings of punk began to make their own presence felt on the same circuit, the Stranglers were on board the bandwagon from the beginning.

Scarce Swedish-only single with solid centre, featuring the Swedish language version of of Sweden [All Quiet On The Eastern Front], b/w "In The Shadows". Housed in a unique black & white textured picture sleeve with orange titles, there is just a little shelfwear to the edges of the sleeve but the vinyl remains in excellent condition!
Swinging Blue Jeans - Make me Know you're Mine
(His Masters Voice POP-1409 Swe-65 VG+ 200:-)

Although they're only remembered today for their 1964 hit "Hippy Hippy Shake," which charted on both sides of the Atlantic -- the Swinging Blue Jeans were actually one of the strongest of the Liverpool bands from the '60s British Invasion; and, indeed, the Blue Jeans' earliest incarnation goes back about as far as the roots of the Beatles as the Quarry Men.

Original Swedish single; b/w "I've got a Girl".
