Hi Jonny -

Mediafire has taken down, any chance of a reup @zippyshare or elsewhere? I missed this when you posted originally, as well :-(

If not, no worries. Thanks for everything!

Wowow, had this on tape once, good times!
Hope you'll get a chance to fix the download link,
MediaFaillure strikes again...

You can still download from Mediafire, it only needs that you try several times (strange but real).
I really enjoyed "Naafi Sandwich".
I suggest you "VA - Cassette Gazette", C45 with 262, Club Moral, Colin Potter, Dancing Free Fall, Ice 9, Lumbarjackbondforhell, Naffi Sandwich, Rig Veeda, Severed Heads, The Instant Automatons, Waiting For Bardot, Winding Up Toys.
You can download it from:

Link worked for me. Looking forward to this! Have a fun weekend with a good dose of Absurdity everyone.

Yes it seems to work for most out there, 137 downloads in a day don't lie!
But i am uploading to Ubuntu as well for all you with a mediafire problem.

So, was "Gerry & The Holograms" a primary influence on New Order's "Blue Monday" or not? Rob Gretton allegedly reckoned so... ;)

Jonny Zchivago said...

Can't disagree with Gretton on anything.
There was definitely some Hannett input on most of these singles, so,most probably.

Holly said...

Thank you for alt link!

Mark G said...

Does it still work?

Jonny Zchivago said...

Tremendous. Thanks to your blog I now do not listen to normal music at all. Any chance of a The Smirks retrospective? They sound jolly good!

Jonny Zchivago said...

Ahh The Smirks, the perenial support act of 1978-79.
Yeah I got an anthology CD i can post here.
look out for later,a link may appear here.

Yeah ,but all this is normal music to me, the abnormal stuff is the stuff the rest of the human throng listen to.....as Wilko Johnson used to say....'Childrens Music'.

Jonny Zchivago said...

Here you go, the complete Smirks:
