The Very Things

Asked by someone a long time ago. Finally got around ripping the early records of The Very Things.
Don't think the band needs any introduction. The Very Things was the follow-up of The Cravats. Shend and R. Dallaway with a new drummer with the nickname Disneytime. Gone is also the sax, as Svor Naan went to play with Pigbros.
'The Gong Man' released on CRASS-offshoot Corpus Christi, the other 2 on Reflex Records (And Also The Trees, Two, Noseflutes). There's one more song from this period 'The Hole' not included here, but you can find that one on the 'Gunfire And Pianos' comp. album posted in the blogosphere.

The Gong Man 7" (Corpus Christi-Christ It's 2-1983)
1. The Gong Man
2. The Colours (Are Speaking To Me)

Mummy You're A Wreck 12" (Reflex Records-12 RE 9-1985)

Paradise Now - I'm So Glad 7"

Pretty obscure 7" from unknown UK band Paradise Now.  They were from South Shields, Tyne + Wear, close to Newcastle.
Indie postpunk tunes here. No info on the band to be find though.

I got this copy from an ebay-seller that sells stuff that isn't listed anywhere else, not even on Discogs (well now it is). I think the seller worked for a zine as the records come with promo or handwritten letter from the band. Paradise Now even claim to be the best thing to come out of the Newcastle area since Brown Ale!

I'm So Glad 7" (Scratch Records-SR1-1985)
1. I'm So Glad I Found You
2. My Tears

UV Pop on Bandcamp

I removed all download links for UV Pop records posted here. The reason is that I found out (through bX59-cppw) that John White made a UV Pop bandcamp page where you can download those records for a reasonable price. There are also some recent recordings to be found. The only one missing is the 'Music To Yeah To" 12" and some early tape-only material.
Thanks to Burl Veneer and Eleni for the original rips they provided me back in the days. It seems to have spurred a lot of interest in hearing back those hard-to-find UV Pop records.
There are (were?) plans for reissues but I haven't heard anything from the label involved lately.
