I concur! I confess to enjoying the odd tiger song, and am quite taken with the Hinnies, but please, please, please let me get what I want. Let me download a song! Let me enjoy an animation, or ponder over a picture! Think about it. Up the Hammers.

Nice one Mr Hoif. Keep on keepin' on, as that other forgotten band, the Redskins, would doubtless have urged.

Nice clean site, which does what it says on the can. I give it a clean bill of health. Constructive suggestion...needs some photos to liven it up.

It's very nice to see some information written about Tiger. Aside from their mullet haircuts they were very good. I even manage to get their album overhere. I nice link to the Popguns as well. Most of the sites that I've visited have been dormant.

Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!! Finally managed to track Sweet Jesus. Ten years ago I was floored when I first heard "Phonefreak Honey" released on a sampler here in America as "Phonefreak". Recorded that track on a tape and kept it safe. Just today managed to grab some additional audio material from them and now this! Again, thank you and keep up the good work! I've heard of Orange Juice too, but thanks to your site starting digging about the other bands as well. Ok, enough of me sounding like a fanboy....

You can finally breathe here on this site, and then i ask myself, where is that typical UK atmosphere ended up? Where are all those good bands? I want british indie guitar bands! No more boy bands, speed garage, r'n'b! SWEET JESUS, SLOWDIVE, TELESCOPES, RIDE, PRIMITIVES, REVOLVER...

Thanks for reminding me what a great band Thrilled Skinny were and of all the times I spent jumping up and down to their manic pop thrill. Best dig out those records... Hope to check out the KOTS article soon.

EAT MY HAT!!! The Skinnies were a Godsend in the late eighties! Rubbish at 5 a side though...and they spoiled my student 'Things to Do' wall chart by scribbling obscenities...bastards!!

Keg, what were you thinking?!? I've never heard of these "bands". You're other website was much better. Cue lots of messages from old people about how these "bands" are amazing. Get a life you sad, sad people!!!

Hello We're currently working on a Scottish music website for BBC Scotland which will launch in April. The Vault will feature biographies of Scottish artists and venues, sound clips, a where-are-they-now feature, a photo gallery and music/gig memories. If you have any stories of seeing Orange Juice - or other Scottish bands then we'd love to hear them. Or if you've taken a photo of a band (any band; doesn't need to be Orange Juice or Scottish) - or had your photo taken with someone - then it'd be great to put that in our gallery. Looking forward to hearing from you Thanks Claire (

Is this like a shrine to Jonathan Peel? Are these old folkie bands? Hmm. Why is there no mention of 'Hoki and the Miners' or 'Tight Seventeen' or 'Japs Revenge'. I thought you were in to bands. You're nothing but a groupy girl Keg. P.S. I like your hair

Hey! I have heard of Thrilled Skinny because they played once in the Firkin when I was at uni in Luton!! I didnt go to watch them but I was in the bar across the road and I heard them. I only knew it was them after when one of the flyers blew at my feet and I read the name of them. I guess that doesnt really count as being a fan does it? the girl.. on the bus... lalala la lalaa hahaha I love it! Your Carlola.

Good info based site. Still needs some photos. It would be nice to know what some of these people looked like! Also, why no link on the links page to an excellent TVP's site that a guy I know maintains? I clean up bird poo on a daily basis, due to keeping parrots.

Nice bit on The bodines - thanks for linking to my site. I must update it soon as should also do with the Mighty Lemon Drop and Shop Assistant ones. Cheers!

If this site had a smell it would stink of secondhand record stores, stale beer and roll ups. Its lovely and very nostalgic. I cannot see any references to American Music Club though, oh and did you know that Bark Phycosis have a new album out soon. Cheers, see you in the Shovels

Enjoyed the site, I think I've seen most of the bands on the page. Spent many a happy night stagediving to Thrilled Skinny at the Woosh Club, Broken Doll, Newcastle. Mind you it might have been the Keatons or CUD ?? Looking forward to info. on The Groove Farm (the Wedding Present you could see in a pub) and The Lavendar Faction, possibly the hardest looking band I've ever seen, except Crane. I guess you had to be there to understand what I'm going on about so I'll shut up. Now.

Good looking site -- should grow into a great resource. My nomination for a band no one has heard of (or so it seems) is Locomotive from the late 60s/early 70s. Their single Mr Armageddon knocks socks off most everything.

Hoo- fucking -ray at last someone else who`s heard of King of the Slums and recognised the fact they were a 1000 times better than most of the indie shite coming out of Manchester at the time. It`s a major fucking shame they did a runner and thier albums have never been re-issued. I`ve been trying to get that b`stard `Dandelions` on CD for years now. I`ve only got the vinyl which is no good as I`ve not got a record player at the mo!

Arrived here looking for Popguns bootlegs and got all excited when I saw mention of a link to a non-dormant site. Then got all disappointed when I couldn't find the link. Still, nice to see a piece on the Suncharms. Where are they now? Coincidentally, I've just spent the evening ripping a Sarah compilation tape that Marcus made for me back in 1990ish...
