Zshare links on a loop

It seems that all my old links run on a loop. I already made contact with Zshare to fix this problem. In the meantime, don't be afraid to ask for a re-up. I'm not going to re-up everything again; just too much work. So if you need anything, post a comment and I'll do my best to provide a new link ASAP.

You can also download the whole album as remixed and remastered tracks as well as an unreleased track: the 8+ mins. 'B Is For Bird'.
Unfortunately you can't place a comment over there, so please do here and let him know what you think of it.

Only record I know of Never Blue from Switzerland. Actually, I don't know anything about them. Found this one quite recently. It's not bad. Decent wave from 1985.

Zshare under maintenance

As you already could find out, zshare is under maintenance already from Thursday. I really hope they can fix their problems very soon. I really don't want the same thing that happened to me like last year with quicksharing.

Here's some news.
Cherry Red finally released a sort of 'Best Of' of one of their most interesting acts from back in the day: Five Or Six. A pity there's only 10 songs on it so I hope there's more to come soon. It has the 'Another Reason' 7", the 'Pillows And Prayers' contribution and a few songs of the 'Polar Exposure' album and the Spanish release. Also 1 track from the 'Four Of...' 12".
Check it out here.

For the Ensemble Pittoresque fans: here's a blog run by ex-member Paulus Wieland with more insight on the re-releases. Seems he wasn't informed on all that. Check it out here.

Hope I can post something in the next days.

Shock Headed Peters - Not Born Beautiful LP

As requested awhile ago. My first post here were the first 2 12"s of Shock Headed Peters. This album was posted on Are Friends Electric but this blog is long gone. Here's your chance to grab this masterpiece again.
Shock Headed Peters was formed by Karl Blake after the split of Lemon Kittens. He released a solo album 'Prehensile Tales' and then formed Shock Headed Peters. Other members included Ashley Wales from Five Or Six and The Fast Set, and Mark Rowlatt of Metabolist. Also guest appearance of Crystalle Quim, nom de plume of Diana Rogerson.
A very diverse album, not really in common with the post-industrial scene showing Karl Blake's fascination of 70's hardrock but taking it to a whole new level.
One of the best albums released in the 80's. Too bad this hasn't been reissued, although there's a CD version as well but I don't know when it was released.

Mome Rath - Apratima MLP

First album of this wave band from France. Mome Rath were from Paris and their 1st release is the 'Advising' 7" on Shin Produc. Then came a live tape on V.I.S.A./Androida Flux.
Mome Rath then signed to Garage Records and released the 'Sarasvati' LP and the 'Back In Paradise' 7" before splitting up.
Mome Rath comes from a nonsense poem 'Jabberwocky' written by Lewis Caroll as a part of his novel 'Through the looking-glass, and what Alice found there'.
