Big Bucks Band - It's Not Enough 7" (Bums Rush Records, 1979)

Might be one of the only punk records to come out of North Dakota at the time. Both sides are fantastic lo-fi punk to the nth degree. Unsure if this ever came with a sleeve or insert but the picture on the label brings back fond memories of my earlier years.

The b-side on this is 'Matrimonialmetamorphosyphilis' and it is as good as the title leads you to believe it is, what with nasally vocals, similar in vein to the Absentees or X-Terminators, with strange but cool overlaying tracks of laughter and babies crying. Sheer awesomeness.

Bit, The - Don't Wanna Be Rejected 7" (Vista Records, 1980)

This mystery single is definitely American, albeit I don't know where from...  No matter where 'bouts in the Americas this puppy sprung up from, the song "Don't Wanna Be Rejected" speaks for itself in the realm of lost 80's pop songs. I'm not 100% percent sure but I do believe that this was released sans sleeve, and this copy, if not all copies, is a promo, so quantities may of been limited to a small pressing.

Some of the guitar licks have a slight country tinge to them at times which leads me to believe that this may of been a Midwestern band, perhaps from Wisconsin or Nebraska? As per usual, if you know any more information please get in touch!

Angels, The - Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again/Round We Go 7" (Albert Productions, 1976)

Digging down under has turned up this little obscurity from 1976. 'Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again' is an excellent Australian hard rock anthem, while the flip-side, clocking in at over 5 minutes, is a anti-society rocker with snotty vocals and a harmonica that can not be ignored.
