EYE ON EBAY-----Fiery teachers

Despite the seller misspelling the band's name The Blazing Apostles this attracted enough interest to hook in £57. It's So Easy/Comfort, to my ears, are only vaguely C86-like, having investigated them via the expediency of Google. Let them spread the word but not in my house.

EYE ON EBAY-----Plug that hole in the sky

We might need an Ozone Farm. No idea who this lot were but I suspect they may have just the one release to their name. The Ozone Farm/Sail The Sea was released in 1986 and interest then, as now, was minimal as this sold for the starting price £1.99. According to the seller this is indie/Britpop despite the fact the latter genre was many years down the road. So what was life like on the ozone farm, specifically what did this lot sound like?

Some vampiric vinyl collector, possibly located east of Vladivostok, snatched the Candy Ranch single from me in the dying seconds of the auction. Reasoning that the last time this sold it stuttered around the £65 mark I was a little complacent and therefore had to suffer miseries as this went elsewhere for the steep sum of £173. It's very likely I'll have to wait another four years before this reappears. Released around late eighties/nineties on Tumak & Sons records in a picture sleeve with a shunter adorning it Section 58/Screaming Nutter trundled down a branch line to nowhere and remained neglected in some abandoned sidings, only a few collectors interested in jotting down its number.


Due to technical diffilculties with the home computer I have neglected the blog. For the few who follow this self-indulgent exercise I offer my sympathies; surely your lives are not so lacking in enrichment you can't go elsewhere for your pleasures? Be that as it may if I offer but one being a miniscule of fulfillment I feel absurdly humbled. If not, carry on without me as you have for the last month or so.
