Cuddly Toys - Moonlight Club, London 3-31-80

Some Post-Punk maybe? The Cuddly Toys were formerly the Punk band The Raped who released two classic singles in 1978. This live set captures the band playing an energetic set of half covers and half originals including the songs from their first two singles. Covers of David Bowie/Marc Bolan, Move, Supremes, Brian Eno, Stooges and they end the set with the classic Raped song Normal.

Cortinas - Plymouth England 1977 + Peel Session 7-26-77

The Cortinas were the first Punk band from Bristol England starting in 1976. Over two years they released two classic Punk singles and one rather weak album that showed them taking a different direction. Until recently not many could no or imagine what their first album would have sounded like had they recorded all their Punk songs. But recently this live show surfaced to give us a taste of what could have been. The four songs from the singles are played plus two others they recorded for a Peel session and the other remain unreleased. Also included in this post is the Peel Session.
