THE VAYNES - Mr.Fixit (12" vinyl rip)
Straight out of 'Goth'em City Leeds' circa 1985 come The Vaynes. A glorious Rock'n'Roll beat combo, in the vein (pun entirely intended) of Iggy Pop, Johnny Thunders and Slaughter and The Dogs. This is pure unadulterated rawk'n'roll. Previously known as The Dead Vaynes, a reference to their notoriety as mainline drug users, surprisingly they got it together to release an album; GTF, on Batfish Incorporated. The record label set up by the Batfish Boys, and produced by Batfish Boy Simon D it came out in 1985. Two years latter, they released this 12" on their own label Vanity Records. A glam slam reference to drug use; Mr.Fixit, co produced by Matt Dangerfield, formerly of The Boys and featuring an appearance by Nev from Leeds punkers the Abrasive Wheels on drums. The B side Cinderella has Craig Adams from The Mission playing Bass. Midnight Gun the final track on the 12" is taken from the aforementioned GTF album. So if you like yer music a bit Punky and a bit Rocky with a hint of Goff then this is a band for you, if it leaves you wanting more then there could be plenty more to come. Anyway it's just a click away. Ready, steady GO!
