Used Goods - Runaround/Drive In 7" (Big Monkey, 1983)

"The Used Goods from Jacksonville, Mississippi, play mid-tempo punk rock’n’roll. Great guitar action and well sung vocals. Certainly worth picking up." - FLEX!

"Runaround" by Used Goods

Projections, The - Hyperactive/Individual 7" (Mirror, 1982)

Obscure Michigan band with their sole release. Rarely see this 45 make it to the surface. Rave Up Records did some sort of reissue to which I've not heard as of yet.

Projections - "Individual"

Robert Ivers & The Ice Stars - Emergency One/Geared Down Low 7" (New Age, 1980)

Catchy punk/rockabilly from Minnesota. They released another later single but this one is the better of the two.

Horrible Nurds - Consuming Passion/Personal Relationships 7" (Half Wombat, 1980)

Lo-Fi and from the UK, 'nough said. "Personal Relationships" is the stand out track. They have a cassette release which I still have yet to track down.

Horrible Nurds - "Personal Relationships"

Liberace Coughs Up Blood / Nik Townend ‎– Split (Vital Records, 1981)

The first song on the A-side of this 45 split release has an extremely catchy sound, earning it a high ranking on the Dustbin Charts. The Nik Townend song on the flip is mediocre at best.
