TWO SEEMINGLY RANDOM SLICES OF 12" VINYL FOR YA.





Right then! A Sunday double bill for ya. First up from we’ve got LOVES YOUNG NIGHTMARE Not a lot to say about this nifty little beat combo, cos very little is know. Here’s what we do know. One of the members played in Preston’s premier Rock’n’Rollers The Genocides. The A-Side of this single, a cover of George Harrison’s All Too Much was produced by Only One Peter Perrett, the B-sides Tomorrow Will Be Fine and How The Mighty Have Fallen weren’t, and are the bands own numbers and mighty fine in a 1991 pop, punk, psychedelic way they are to. I have a vague recollection of seeing 'em support someone at a great little venue in Croydon called The Underground, way before this single was released, but this is a hazy memory.
The second part of today’s double bill is from GARY HOLTON. This single is slightly different from his work with Casino Steel, but still just as much fun. The A-side is a cover version of Perry Como's Catch a Falling Star. Garry worked with Slade bassist Jim Lea on this, which unsurprisingly is a little glam pop stomper of a track. On the B-side Angel (no relation to She’s no) Gary teamed up with Ray Mcveigh from The Professionals to produce a sort of rock/pop/rap little number. Production wise this single has a pure 80’s sound, well it was released in 1984 after all, as was the norm then both tracks are Extended Versions. Enjoy! Destroy! Whatever!

I guess that ex Genocides member must be Tommy. I was expecting these guys to sound like Birdland looking at the sleeve. This is a pretty great single - thanks for posting :)
