Singles Collection

As I wote in my previous blog, my single’s record collection had been obliterated to a ‘mush’ due to a leaking attic roof. This had caused damage to the covers and the labels, to such an extent that I could not read the label or tell what band it was from the state of the covers. I scraped off the mush and I was left with only the black vinyl.

I made a list of the singles I own, I am sure I had more! I remember buying “The Starjets” single after I saw them at the Stiff Little Finger’s 1st concert in Carlisle, they were the supporting band, 50p from the Pink Panther Record shop (God bless it). It has a white label and printed nam… D.I.Y. at its best.
There were other singles too, but I have no idea where they have gone too (I bet you know how it feels too?). But it is what I have at the moment. I have not included odd 1960s singles from The Who (I Can’t Explain) or Aruther Brown (Fire) and other 60s groups (I order these from the ‘Panther’). The list represents the Punk/New Wave singles…what I consider them to be!

And, to be honest, I did not buy all of them, some where given…written in no particular order.

I have tried to include the record companies where possible and I have left it black if the label was too badly destroyed. It gives an idea who was working for the ‘big boys’ and who were with the ‘independants’. Some of the tracks I have also left blank due to I could not read the labels:
