Severed Heads - Dead Eyes Opened (Import 12 Inch / 1986)




01) Dead Eyes Opened  6:00
02) Petrol 5:42
03) We Have Come To Bless This House 3:54
04) Oscar's Grind 4:38
05) Mambo Fist Miasma 5:10
 
 
 
 

 
Sticking with the Halloween theme, this track certainly fits in. Australian based Severed Heads (Tom Ellard) and one of the early tracks that put him on the map. Much can be said about the success of Vancouver based Nettwerk Records and all the artists on their roster at the time (Skinny Puppy, Sarah McLachlan, MOEV etc.)!

Ministry - Everyday (Is Halloween) - All Day (US 12 Inch / 1985)

Posted for obvious reasons despite being a bit cliche for anyone who has ever clubbed in the mid 80's.

The Stray Cats - Stray Cat Strut (UK 12 Inch / 1983)




01) Stray Cat Strut 3:14

04) Drink That Bottle Down (Live) 5:12
 
Bonus
 
Sweet Love - Drink That (Live-Blended Mix) 9:37
 
 
 
 


All recordings and art are from this 12inch The two live recordings are seperate tracks on the vinyl.  I thought it would be more fitting to have them as one track to keep continuity...hence your bonus track.

Love And Rockets - No New Tale To Tell (US Promo Double A-Side 12 Inch / 1987)




01) No New Tale To Tell (LP Version) 3:26



 
 
I recently found this mint Promo 12 inch for $2. I normally would have passed this up as it is a double A-side promo with just a LP version of the track, but...I love artwork! I bought it just to document the art...in my own way, not the terrible scans you find elsewhere.
 
That being said, it's up to you if you want to download this or not. If you're like me...you'll want it just for the art...lol!  The track recording was taken from the 2002 remaster of the 'Earth, Sun, Moon' CD. I lowered the amplification as this was remastered into the 'red' (loud) like so many other recordings these days.
 
 
No New Tale To: Tell
 

Romeo Void - Never Say Never (EP / 1981)




01) Never Say Never 6:04
02) In The Dark 4:26
03) Present Tense 5:46
04) Not Safe 3:53
 
 
 

 
I had a request for this one and honestly, I have no issues filling it. I was going to do a dual post of R.V. back when I laid out the 'Girl In Trouble' 12 inch, but I got sidestepped. This is an awesome EP! Something about the drumming, bass line and guitar work make this EP ring loud and solid even 32 years after it's release. I can honestly say that this sounds far better on vinyl as opposed to the CD pressings, of which you can't find some of these tracks...yeah, I looked.  Everything was recorded & photo'd from this EP.

Seona Dancing - More To Lose (UK 12 Inch / 1983)




01) More To Lose (Extended Mix) 6:03
02) You're On My Side 3:06


Ricky Gervais.  Love him or hate him, this is a bit of his musical side from the early 80's. I must say, I rather enjoy this track...not him. Something about that forced laugh he always has. I really don't find him that funny. Anyway, we want music, not opines on comedians...right?
I've decided to put this up after seeing requests for it on other blogs, specifically DJ Paul T's BTG site.
All art and recordings are directly from this 12 inch. Thanks & enjoy!

Thanks to DJ Shelf for providing the US Promo CDS from which I borrowed for this release (7 Inch Edit & 12 Inch Remix).

I spent a bit of time putting this one together, as this is one my favourite MISH tracks! What is unfortunate is the fact that I didn't take photos of the vinyl versions. I sold those long ago without ever documenting the art. My bad oversight.  On the other side, my recordings of the tracks remains solid! You'll have to put up with the limited photos that discogs has on their site.
 
 I have the CD Single and all the other CD's so you'll get that art along with ALL the tracks listed here. Everything was recorded at 320 and it all has been run through Adobe Audition for crisp, clear and amplified sound.
