Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

It's Yule, ya Yob

The Yobs were the alter-egos of The Boys.

Following the release of Alternative Chartbusters, The Boys had a falling out with NEMS, their record company. So they bootlegged themselves as The Yobs for their Christmas 1978 offering of "Silent Night" b/w "Stille Nacht".

After signing with Safari in 1979 "Little Drummer Boy" was given The Yobs treatment & appeared as "Rub A Dum Dum" in time for Christmas.

After Baron von Bratboy left the band, the Yobs released "The Yobs Christmas Album" in 1980, adopting the names of H. J. Bedwetter, Noddy Oldfield, Ebenezer Polak & Kid Vicious. In true Yobs style the album was written, recorded & mixed in two days at Pete Townsend’s Eel Pie Studios.
