LA Finds part 1




OK, been offline for a while, mostly driving around Arizona (with a quick poke into Utah). Very little in the way of records, but enjoyed a great trip as a real tourist.
Anyhow back to Purepop business


First day in LA and visited Ameoba and Rockaway, where I found the singles below and this damn fine poster (above). How much More LA can you get? The Hollywood Stars(just before implosion) supported by the pre- Currie 3 piece Runaways! Paid a packet but could not leave this behind...

Of the singles, perhaps the most interesting is the 3 track single by Next. A UK band based in France and coming across like a Flamingo era Groovies, mixed with UK Hard Rock with a dollop of Proto Punk. More soon on that one...
More shopping tomorrow and Wednesday, before flying back to Blighty on Thursday.

More soon...

Hi
Yes I compressed the 45 picture too much, however, you can save as a picture on your PC and then blow it up...BTW, Just got back and your Icelandic package was here...wow
