Why I Do This

I was lucky enough to be a teenager through the eighties and I was mad on music, big hair, bad make-up and all that went with being a teenager of the times. All these years later I still have the big hair but now it is "touched" with grey and the bad make-up is gone but the tunes still play loudly in my head and even louder if they grace my radio, tv or mp3player. I will gladly admit to being a"mainstream" fan for the most part but I do have the odd liking for some of the less "played to death" bands of the time. What started all this was a drawer full of slowly decaying cassettes and a fear of losing the music that is on them. So I began to recreate them onto CD and I am loving it and finding some fantastic albums along the way.

I would like to re-dedicate this site to my late husband, he lost his long battle with cancer in 2011, he was a huge 80's fan, possibly even more so than myself. So for you my love.

I just had to post this video clip from Painters & Dockers for their song Nude School, it was a great song but the clip is something else... you be the judge.

Thans Aussound for this. I can't remember this being in the shops all those years ago. After this was posted here I found out that a mate of mine has it!!!

Meggsy said...

Hey Dan maybe you could twist your mates arm for front and back scans :P

Mad Danno said...

Sure can Meggsy. He has them in storage right now so I'll get them as soon as I can.

One of the worst compilation CDs ever made. just 12 songs for $12? That's still too much.
