Birds With Ears Album + tons of other free stuff

In addition to the large number of free Brighton punk mp3s on offer on this site, we kick off the first in an occasional series of complete album recordings, otherwise unavailable to the public. First up is the 1981 Birds With Ears album on Attrix Records, Youthinasia (RB12). This bizarre, funky, darkly comical masterpiece has gone largely unheard since the early eighties, unless you happen to have stumbled across a copy in a charity shop or car boot sale a rare chance.
So this month we present the first two tracks from the album as free mp3’s with more to follow on the first of each month. Also included is a 1980 interview in Brighton's Voltage fanzine as a downloadable pdf. If you can be arsed to come back each month, you’ll eventually get the whole damn album, plus a fantastic surprise package at the end. I have personally remastered these tracks from my own pristine LP, using Adobe Audition, upping the level and adding some reverb in a few select places. Brighton rocks!
Yep it's all happening this month, tons more new stuff. We've had a fantastic response to requests for mp3s and other historical goodies, thanks to all who contributed. Check out the box below for links to all the cool new stuff. Paul Martin sent in a recorded interview from BBC Radio Brighton's Breadline 1980 show featuring his band The Relatives. We've also made available hard copy extracts from interviews from the fanzines Voltage and Naked Eye as downloadable pdf's. This month features Birds With Ears and Midnight & The Lemon Boys.
We've also updated the Vaultage 08 cover should you want to download it. Up yours!
