INSYTE - Squat 7" (1990)

INSYTE was a tenuously political band from Australia. I thinks Squat is the B-side. It's an enjoyable song if you're in the mood to be pontificated to.
I included three other songs of theirs from a 1989 compilation tape called "Give them Love" that was posted on the defunct blog Terminal Escape.

A - Groove
B - Squat
*Liberation
*Capitalism in Decay
*Needless Kill

You can listen to "Squat" HERE.

Verska Vis - complete recordings

The band was from Renne. The line-up was:
Giles 'Skant' Rouxel (saxophone & vocals)
Shoog (vocals)
Marc Chamu (guitar)
Denis Boutrais (guitar)
Fred Menuet (bass)
J.C. Benic (drums)
Xavier Debroise (saxophone)
They preferred playing live to recording in a studio so, sadly, there is not much in the way of recordings made before the band broke up in 1992 due to Skant being killed in a car accident.

Their entire discography that was released prior to the band calling it quits:
Experiment In Terror - from the 1989 compilation Sale Temps Pour Un Snarck (Rennes Via Rennes)
Go Out Anymore - Vive le Ska 1989
Ego Te Batisto (Live) - Stay S.H.A.R.P Vol. 1 1993
Cure De Redeem - from a split 7" with  Martin Dupont & His Gitane Mais 1993
Forget It - from a split 7" with Skaville Train 1991

...and one official live recording that served as their demo tape:




So here I bring to you, a Tone and Wave exclusive, what I believe to be every song this band ever recorded.

The Tonics - Major Problem (1995)

Demo cassette from this British band. I don't know what happened to them but they could have been huge. They had a couple more songs on compilations that I am in the process of obtaining and you can rest assured that I will post them when I get them. Actually, I'll post the whole compilation but I'll remind you of these guys when I do.

The band:
Daz Jackson - vocals
Jason Bagshaw - rhythm guitar and vocals
Wiff Smith - lead guitar
Adi Bates - bass
Gaz Bliss - keyboards
Waine Timms - trumpet and vocals
Stevie B - sax and percussion
Andy Garner - drums
Andy Greenway - mixing desk

Listen to "Major Problem"

First, I'd like to thank Rude Rich who informed me of them because I never heard of them myself.

Second, I tried and tried to get a better version of this recording with different tape players with all different settings, but this is the best I can do. It was mixed with low bass.

1 Major Problem
2 Special Brew
3 Tonic Shuffle
4 The Snake

Big Beat - Boring Monday 7" (1981)

On Monday January 29th, 1979 a 16 year old girl named Brenda Spencer who lived across the street from an elementary school took out her Ruger semi-automatic .22 caliber rifle that her father bought her for Christmas and started shooting at kindergarteners when the principal opened the gates in the morning to let the kids in. Eight children were shot, the principal and a custodian were killed and a police officer who responded to the shooting was shot in the neck.
When asked why she did it Brenda responded "I don't like Mondays. This livens up the day."

Bob Geldof was inspired by this line to write the Boomtown Rats song "I Don't Like Mondays" and it was scratched into a wall in the movie "The Breakfast Club".




This was an unknown California ska band who was also inspired to write a song about it. I know nothing else about this band but it took me well over a decade to find a copy of this one. My copy doesn't have the cover but I was able to find a small image of the picture sleeve.

If anybody knows anything else about this band, please let me know.

A - Boring Monday
B - Boring Dub

Brand New World - Six Feet Under 7" (1983)

Discogs has this listed as a UK release but I could have sworn it was one of those great forgotten California ska records. (Not to be confused with the California ska/reggae band from the eighties Brave New World.) I don't actually know. Neither does anybody else, it seems. Great record though.

B - Monster Love
