The Momes : Spiralling

Kind of a super-group made of half of The Work (Tim Hodgkinson & Mick Hobbs) and half of Unrest, Work & Play (Andy Wake). Sounds exactly as a combination of these two great groups, with a very live, even punky sound. Urgent, demanding. This, their only release, is from 1989 just before the reunion of The Work for the Rubber Cage album.

Any thoughts on the Mick Hobbs/Officer! tape "Bandagen/Some Songs"? Or the Officer! s/t or "Cough" tapes? Ever seen them?

hi anon,
you're close - i was planning 'ossification' as one of my next posts. as for the tapes, i've got 'cough' and another just called 'officer', both 2nd gen. tapes - never saw the originals (few have i believe)! the bad news is that one of the tapes has a nasty buzzing sound from start to finish, can't recall which one. don't believe i can take that off, but who knows? never tried... also i lost the tracklists to both of them (they are on a same cass). can someone help out with this?

dear rz, i'm happy to see you back!!!
many things you post i don't see on the blogs or in the forums - very unique stuff!
it seems you really have your rules and regulations about posting just unavailable stuff, right? i respect that - but it's still a kind of theft, without having the copyright - and to most out-of-print records there are copyrights ... blabla - this is going nowhere, i just think to myself, posting some out of print, some in print, and some in between...

cheers, orang

ps: works very fine for me
