Street Level EP
7" EP 33⅓ rpm
All tracks recorded at Street Level presumably by Grant, Kif Kif or Steffe;
except Vince Pie & The Crumbs recorded at Quest Studios in Luton where knob-twiddling duties were shared by
Grant and Mick Sinclair.
The Entire Cosmos - Looking For You
Vince Pie & The Crumbs - Pontin' Stomp
The Voltones - Poisoned
Blue Midnight - Blues Exterminator
1st pressing with full-colour front sleeve. Probably a pressing of 1000. No credits for the sleeve exist,
which is a shame because the front cover is great - no idea of the concept behind it but there really should
be a story and due credit.
A marked change from the DIY genius of the first EP. Proper songs from stalwarts of the free tours.
The Entire Cosmos.
On this recording we have Gary from Newcastle (Maugham? for some reason that I can't justify), Twink
(ex-Here And Now) and Grant Showbiz along with mainman JB (Jonathan Barnett) and Joseph (Josef/Gary Hatcher
moonlighting from Attitudes and shortly to be, he of Zounds and later The Mob).
Vince Pie & The Crumbs straight outta Hemel, arose from the asses of The Anal Surgeons. Vince being
ex-Surgeon Phil Seaton. Crumbs consisted of Adrian Thatcher and others yet to be identified.
Pontin' Stomp is horn driven and, as you might imagine, a bit of a stomper. Nice enough but they did better.
The Voltones or more accurately The Voletones. Ex-Crumbs and chums of Grant. My favourite on this EP.
This is a great song and if tinkered with by Mick Jones would sit quite happily on any album by The Clash.
Blue Midnight. Written by Mark Perry. You can tell. Some great violin.
