Bat's 1977 - 1982 Compilation Tape Side 1
After writing yesterday's post I decided to root about the wine boxes and see if I could find the tape that I was going on about. Eventually after a bit of digging I struck gold and decided to go through it and to my surprise there are some tracks that I don't remember being on there, a couple I can't believe are included that I must have fast forwarded through, three that I don't have a clue what they are and one that's not there which I could have sworn was.
Here is a list of what was on side one.
Joy Division - Love Will Tear Us Apart
Undertones - Teenage Kicks
Aztec Camera - Oblivious
The Piranhas - Getting Beaten Up Is Part Of Growing Up
Pretenders - Back On The Chain Gang
Echo and The Bunnymen - Rescue
The Only Ones - Another Girl, Another Planet
The Cars - My Best Friend's Girlfriend
The Jam - The Eton Rifles
The Ramones - Needles and Pins
Blondie - Dreaming
Elvis Costello - Lip Service
Sham 69 - You're A Better Man Than I
Skids - Into The Valley
Most of the tracks are readily available these days but back then if you didn't have the vinyl you had to rely on mates with older brothers, cheers Bat and Tank.
If anyone can tell me what the unknown track is I would be grateful. Sorry for the sound quality of said track but it came off of a tape that I reckon must be 25 years old.
Side 2 tomorrow
