Seaside Rock DLP 1981
Label: Airship #: AP 342 Country: UK
Info: Local "talent" from the Essex area, released by the semi-proper Airship label (Chinatown, Voltz etc..). Came with a 4-page folder insert featuring band pics and info (VALKYRIE-panel). A shitload of record for that one sweet Prime NWOBHM moment.

CONTENT
(bold = exclusive track / normal = non-exclusive track / italic = non-metal)



Side A:
1. ORANGE - Swan Song
  A slightly funky, 70's rock mess.
2. ORANGE - Crazy Lady
  More awfully sour 70's rock.

  -"-
5. ALL THAT'S FICTION - Read In The Papers
  Indie rock.
6. ALL THAT'S FICTION - Super Heroes
  -"-
7. VALKYRIE - Cradle To The Grave
  With only one song they still got the longest playing-time of all of side A and while definitely on the same level of crude as their compatriots this is quite a rippin' tune in the murky style of Sacred Alien or a more epic Omen Searcher.

1. THIS WAY UP - Over And Over
  Powerpop.
2. THIS WAY UP - Another Morning
  Funk/prog'ish amateur rock.
3. MOTHERS LITTLE HELPERS - Johnny Was A Freedom Fighter
  Reggae.

  Rockabilly.
5. PARALYSIS - I Remember You
  Pop.
6. PARALYSIS - Today
  -"-
7. GUILLOTEENIES - We Can't Play
  No, you probably can't, but that hardly makes you unique for this dire compilation...
8. GUILLOTEENIES - Play For Today
  Quite funny lo-fi new wave.

Side C:
1. LOOSE TALK - Can't Help Myself
  Slick & jazzy pop.
2. LOOSE TALK - Trouble For Someone
  -"-
3. BLUE ORION - That's Reasonable

  Mellow pop-rock.
2. BOGNOR'S LAST RESORT - Name Dropping
  -"-
3. X-IT - Wild Flowers

4. X-IT - Bogeyman Clowns
  -"-
5. LOST SOULS - Chasing The Words Again
  Acoustic d.i.y.-pop ballad.
6. LOST SOULS - Fit
  Funny kintchen-sink vocals/bass/violin oddball.
