Drinking Electricity - Cruising Missiles (1980, UK, electronic/new wave) 
Tuesday, September 26, 2006, 02:30 PM - Music, - UK, English
Here is the second single of Drinking Electricity I own.
On the b-side a version of 'Shaking all over' that deserves more the label electronic. I knew that song from the Who (Live at Leeds). But it is written and first performed by Frederick Heath using his pseudonym Johnny Kidd.

From behind the cabinet: Those Naughty Lumps - Iggy Pop's Jacket (1978, UK, Punk/New wave) 
Monday, September 18, 2006, 07:04 PM - Music, - UK, English
A fairly unknown Liverpool band. Sounds much like the Members, but who knows them. Short punky songs with fender guitar.
I heard it on the radio. Every Saturday I listened to John Peel's Music on BFBS (British Forces Broadcasting Service) that was aired by a nearby military station in Germany.

I don't know how I got it. Maybe in Amsterdam (No Fun on the Rijnstraat) or Nijmegen or somebody brought it from London. No internet shops at that time.
