Johnny Moped - Roundhouse, London 2-02-78

Here's another Johnny Moped show. This one from early 1978 sees them playing 4 songs that were not a part of their album. Two songs are from the Slimey Toad solo single and the two others were not released at the time. This version of Musical Bore is played much faster, meaner and rawer that the one that's been released on The Bootleg Tapes CD a few years ago. This is a rough audience recording but worth the listen just for the 4 rare songs.

Slimey Toad single here:

Tanz Der Youth - Music Machine + Peel Session 1978

Tanz Der Youth was the first post-Damned band Brian James formed. They didn't stick around very long - only long enough to release one single and record a Peel Session. Beside James, the band also consisted of Andy Colquhoun on Bass who was previously in Warsaw Pakt and Alan Powell on Drums who was once a member of Hawkwind. The sound is a bit different than the Damned but not really too far away to not give it a listen.
