Someone requested this well over a year ago so now here it is. This is the band Stretch Armstrong from Provo Utah.

I like Beshara. As long as I have been doing Tone and Wave I never posted anything by them yet. Bruce recently sent me this, which is great because I didn't have it. I like it. I hope you do too. If you do you gotta let me know and I'll post more of their stuff in the future.
(This was originally posted over 3 months ago and downloaded over 100 times and only just now I'm informed the file was faulty?! Maybe you didn't like the live performances but if you skip this one you're missing out.)
Rikard sent me this a week or so ago and I never did get around to listening to it yet so I don't have a track listing but it's Bad Manners. You don't need a track listing. This was a performance at Hultsfredsfestivalen in 1995 that was aired on a Swedish radio station. It's just under an hour long.

This was Dixo Wankers' first release and, in my opinion, their worst. Maybe I shouldn't say that because I really like them but this was inferior to their other two 7-inches. The A-side is a Sonny Bono cover and the B-side is a Booker T and the MGs cover.
WEA first released this without an actual cover because they weren't happy about putting out the name Dixo Wankers and originally released them only as Dixo.
A - Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) B - Time is Tight
This is the first of two albums from this band from Maastricht, Netherlands. This LP and their first five singles had a ska influence with equal parts their former skiffle sound (they used to be the skiffle band The Walkers). Their second LP "Do Not Lose the Beat" was more keyboard-driven new wave.
This LP includes both A and B sides of their much sought-after single "Write Off".

California's first reggae band and another regular ON Klub band. Sadly, this is the only thing they released aside from the "Feeling Alright" single. I could write more about them but I would only be repeating what Marco wrote here.
1 Old Board Carpenter 2 Reggae Lives 3 Thinking of Me 4 Let the Children Beware 5 Music Man 6 Feeling Alright
I have been posting things recently that are influenced by the Police and, in fact, I have been listening to the Police a lot lately. Synchronicity is one of my favorite albums ever. Every single song is a gem. Yes, yes, even the song "Mother". Yes, I like the song "Mother". Shut up!
Here's another brilliant single with a noticeable Police sound to it. This was also submitted by Bruce.
It was pointed out to me that these links have expired so here they are again. I have included yet another track from the Blackpool's live compilation. The song is "Ancient Chinese Ska"

If you only need "Ancient Chinese Ska" you can get it HERE.
Open letter to xtimmyx: I only noticed today that you left a comment in February offering "Keep the Pressure On". Sorry I never responded but I really never did see it until today. If your offer still stands, yes, I am still in need.
