A little shopping trip Part 2


Not one to be to be put off by a blown head gasket, I finally ventured out of the house and went on public transport all the way to Croydon to spend a couple of hours at Beanos. Now Beanos are closing down soon and all their singles are HALF Price!
The singles I picked up today included: AxePeople Come People Go (OK rocker, not as glammed out as their version of Monie Monie), The Electric BananaGroovy Baby Bubblegum Music (er...groovy bubblegum!), The BubblegumLittle Red Bucket (Vanda &Young!), BusterPasadena (Vanda &Young too!), Kristine SparkleHokey Cokey (Much better B side –Baby I Love You), Third World WarAscension Day (Brutal Prol. Rock in Pic. Sleeve), Brotherly LovePublic Enemy No.1 (Probably the same version as by Son Of A Gun), FumbleMillion Seller (Great Buddy Holly inspired pop gem. I forgot about this single -We used to open the set with the B side Get Up in my first band back in 75/76. Get Up was also part of the inspiration for The 'Cudas -1965 Again), FumbleRock’n’ Roll School, BitchWildcat (not as good a song as Good Time Coming) and WellingtonAlright I’ll See You Tonight ( great with a really good Get It On cop) and a few misses not to be mentioned…Anyhow the average cost was under £3, so I recommend getting down to Beanos before Xmas. Expect reviews of some of these over the next few months...

Definitely worth it at those prices, if you do come you should also make a pilgrimage to Archive Records in Addlestone -all easy reach from the M25...
