Dave and Toni Arthur - Hearken to the Witches Rune. BBC didn't listen to this before giving her the Playschool job.

think she was my first crush ever. Still haven't heard this music though. Thought I'd seen it described as pretty straight trad, is it really dark then?

Gore - Gore, Hart Gore, Lifelong Deadline. Still hit the spot.

an '87 live set turned up on Dime this week. Haven't played it yet. There was also a Head of David which was pretty decent.

Thin White Rope - Exploring the Axis, In The Spanish Cave. The archetype of underated bands. How the hell did this lot not take off. Ace.

love the band, one of the greatest guitar duet ensembles ever I think Television meets country meets Sabbath? Loved finding out what the lyrics actually were after transcribing them wrong. Some of it's too obscure to get straight off but there's a site out there with lyrics on. (or not since the site I linked to on a message a while back now seems dead, shame)
Kyser went onto the Mummydogs then retired for several years, did he go into science? Think he came back with a new project over the last couple of years.
Some of the others became Acme Rocket Quartet, who were largely instrumental.
Just listening to the Walkabouts and hit a point that really reminds me of TWR as I'm typing this. Slow tautened groove sounds like a muscle being flexed the wrong way or something.
