Leyton Buzzards - I'm Hanging Around

Image Hosted by

Great single from 1979. Always nice to hear Mr. Peel's voice as well. Before 'Art School' we get to hear his dulcet tones.
They should make it onto most of the 'Now That's What I Call Punk' comps if you ask me. But what do I know. 'Flying Pigs' on this I think is fantastic. Make of it what you will.
Safe to say, if you like stuff from late 70's, Clash, Generation X, (early) Adam & the Ants, John Otway (anyone!) you'll love this.
Worth a spin. I swear.

Tracks:- Hanging Around/I Don't Want To Go To Art School/No Dry Ice Or Flying Pigs

Very nice, I know nothing about them except that in Dave Widgery's RAR account "Beating Time" the singer is praised for facing down NF skins and talking them out of violence at gigs.

Alright John, I have a HUGE interview with both Gaz and Kid from legendary mackem punk band RED LONDON. The site that was gonna carry it originally decided not to for various reasons. So it's gathering dust on my computer. I have graphics, intro, the whole shooting match. I'd be honored if you wanted to run it. Either way, drop me a holler at

Cheers, Sascha

Anon 1: No probs. Cheers for comment. 19 and mad is a great single as well.

Anon 2: Shall we just pretend Modern Romace never happened, along with latter Ultravox, Caberet Voltaire & a load of other good bands that went up their own arses! Cheers for comment. :)
