- The purpose behind this space is to share obscure, out of print or otherwise commercially unavailable music, video and other media from a period in time in which music history revisionists have written out or downplayed the contributions of so many great bands, fanzine writers and others. And to entertain myself. I don't own any of the material posted, so if it belongs to you and you do not want it up here, get in touch with me and I will take it down. A lot of the material I will end up posting has been downloaded from other blogs or received through trades and may or may not be available elsewhere. I am extremely grateful for all the great stuff I have discovered through other people's blogs and their effort to share but please do not spit your dummy out for not receiving credit for your "ripping the vinyl" or whatever.I really cannot be bothered to keep track of where I found things. Keep in mind you probably do not own the rights for the music either and it is all about bringing the music to a wider audience (in my case likely the 3 or 4 people who bother to read this blog). I hope everyone discovers something new or something they have been searching for. All the best.

Fantastic band and shamefully obscure. One of Bristol's very first punk bands from 1977 and to my knowledge the band never recorded in a studio and had no releases during their lifetime. I know nothing about the band beyond the bio at Bristol Archive Records:
Below are a few tracks from a 1977 gig at Barton Hill Youth Club:
I've not posted the whole show as Bristol Archive Records has recently released this gig and another and it is the sale of music which allows them to continue doing the brilliant job they do with chronicling the unreleased and largely unheard material of early Bristol punk bands. If you like what you hear, support the label and buy music by The Primates here:
