The follow up to Vaultage 78 was …...er......oh yeah, Vaultage 79! Released in 1979! And even less surprisingly, it ain't as good as its predecessor.
Its has plenty of ordinary well drilled power pop,with a distinct 'Mod Revival' flavour. There's a couple of obligatory faux reggae, cosmopolitan university drop out band, numbers; that cropped up everywhere in 1979. Two new wavey numbers by a band named after a 'feminine area' absorbent product.
The best group on here were The Chefs, with a couple of proto-indie tunes, that suggest Student band;a bit too clever by 'arf, but went on after this to release a couple of decent E.P's.
Vaultage 80 was even worse,so I won't post that one.
