I see that pre-Britpop Indie "sensations" Thousand Yard Stare are playing some gigs again. I never knew much about them back in the day, but I always suspected that they had "the right stuff" because of this track I first heard on a "taster" cassette with a music mag:

This should have been a hit:

A huge cut above far more successful power-pop-punk hits - ain't it a shame it wasn't?

My mate is over from the States and said that The Long Ryders were still great live and that reminded me of this belter:

They played our little club in Romford in 1985.
This was, and remains, my favourite by the band....

Oh that's excellent too!

There was a time back in the day when they were doing that "The Byrds meets Garage Rock" thing in the US and Bram Tchaikovsky was doing the same over here:

Another band I saw at my little Rezz club in 1984 and 1985.
I can't find any chart appearances although they did appear on The Tube and this French show from '83...
