Artefact

From City Life 39, Oct ’84. More of what’s on.Russ Abbot’s “Atmosphere”,The Firm’s “Star-trecking”,Arthur Mullard and Hilda Baker’s rendition of “Your the one that I Want” etc... totally underrated and lost classics I’ve still to track down...
The wonderful Misty in Roots at The International.John Peel hammered their "Live at the Counter Eurovision" offering with a quote along the lines of"...if I was black I'm sure I'd be a Rastaman..."; slightly cringeworthy but undoubtedly well meant.Actually they did a double sided single with The Ruts on one side and them on the other, on their joint People Unite label; and, now I think of it The Pop Group "Where There's a Will" with The Slits "In The Beginning There was Rhythm" on the other side of the same 7" on Rough Trade. Great double header that.Can't think of many/any other two band double siders....Fleetwood Mac with "Man of the World" b.w.Earle Vince & The Valiant's classic "Somebody's Gonna Get Their Head Kicked in Tonight" (pre Stevie Nicks, honest....),but they were kinda the same band. Better move on before I get caught in a loop.
