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.

Now I’m Smelling a Distinctive Autuer of Vinyl

This is the 2008 release from LTM Records' acclaimed compilation series ''Auteur Labels''.  Here they cover Manchester imprint Object Music. 

Object Music was active between 1978 & 1981, pioneering Manchester post-punk scene. Object Music was founded by songwriter & deejay Steve Solamar to release records by his own group, Spherical Objects. The label soon began releasing records by other artists, many of them active in the Manchester Musicians' Collective.

  2. Oooh, good one! "Love Will Tear Us Apart" apparently borrows a melodic line or two from "The Cake Shop Device".

  3. Cake Shop Device 1979 - Love Will Tear Us 1980. Seems right as to who borrowed what. Thanks brother.
