V.A. Teenage Treats Vol. Six (1977-1981)

(Alas, Roberto's supply of killer cover scans is done - and the images will get more dire soon - so if anyone has ANY kind of scans for T.T. V.'s 7-10 let me know!!)

Here's a new series (well, the late 1990's, really and even then...), consisting of ten volumes that explore the seedy underbelly of the already seedy underbelly that was British punk rock in the late seventies and early eighties.

Highlights of this SUPERFANTISTICALLY poppy volume may (or may not - taste in seedy underbellies varies widely) might include: The Flying Colours brilliant "Abstract Art" Masterswitch's "Action Replay" and Shadowfax's "the Russians Are Coming":

* Abstract Art (Flying Colours, 1981, from only 7")
* The Russians Are Coming (Shadowfax, 1980, from only 7")
* Blind To Fiction (Dodos, 1981, from Sex, Violence and The Eternal Truth compilation EP)
* Factory Girl (Regal Zone, 1981, from only 7")
* Action Replay (Masterswitch, 1978, from only 7")
* Out With Me All Night (Plague, 1980, from 2.7")
* Angel In A Raincoat (Sleepers, 1980, from only 7")
* Dubious Parentage (Three Party Split, 1979, from 1.7")
* Accidents (Steroid Kiddies, 1979, from only 7")
* Nationwide (Whips, 1981, from only 7")
* Teen Romance (Alsatians, 1980, from only 7")
* Come Again (Tony Jacksun, 1978, from only 7")

Comments are what keep the rarities flowing...

Please don't neglect to communicate!!

Speaking of those rarity-fueling comments, that is the section where you will find the Teenage Treats # 6 link.

  2. Glad to see you keep the wonderful serie coming. Pity for the scans. Thanks!!

  3. Hi jeffen, Where can I see the other volumes and the bands that are on them? I've got quit a few rare 7" in my collection, I'm sure no where near as many as whoever has been suppling the art for the previous six volumes but I'll check and see if I can contribute to this great sears... Thanks !

  4. I just can't believe the amount of cool punk/pop singles that was released back then... and how much of it that's new to me... before this blog lark started going I thought I had quite a good collection of singles, of course I had only scratched the surface! But hell, I'm not bitter, keep it coming, thos is a cultural service to the community!

  5. Thanks again for continuing this great little series Jeff. Sorry I can't help with the artwork (you know what mine is like lol)
