Party Day / I'm Dead / Spot The Dog

This weekend's offer is a collection of 3 singles of UK bands Party Day, I'm Dead and Spot The Dog.

As promised, here's the first 7" of Party Day. 'Row The Boat Ashore' was re-recorded for the 'Glasshouse' album. 'Poison' is an exclusive track. Comes in a red cloth cover with insert (scanned).
Now the Party Day discography is complete.

Row The Boat Ashore 7" (Party Day Records-FX 301-1983)
1. Row The Boat Ashore
2. Poison

Party Day

Next one is the sole 7" of I'm Dead. A bit of a cult band. Had a hard time finding a copy. Great gothpunk. The band also have a track 'Page After Page' on a split flexi with punkband Epidemic, released by Grim Humour fanzine. On the back of the 7" it states that there's also a 6-track tape. Fritz once sent me a file he found with 11 tracks. So I guess they did some recordings for comp. tapes as well. But I don't know which tracks are on the tape and where the other tracks come from. Member Keith Goldhanger played later in Bastard Kestrel and Headbutt.

Second Identity 7" (Goldhanger Records-GLUM 001-1983)
1. Second Identity
2. The Sentence

I'm Dead

The last one is the only 7" of Spot The Dog. Sorrow-Vomit pointed me out on this one as he found out this is actually the band before Diatribe, who released a 12" on Criminal Damage. Nothing groundbreaking here. 'Toy' is the best track IMO.

Toy 7" (Diätribe-DIÄT 018-1982)
1. Toy
2. Drop In The Ocean

Spot The Dog

Thanks for this post was wondering if you have the album of the band Company Of State?

I posted that demo for your readers on my own blog. Hope some more data comes to light.

I also posted Grinning Plowmen, who I think you'll dig.

'Toy' is a great track.

Don't know exactly why but I like this single by I'm dead a lot. The A side reminds me of Zounds and of Vendino Pact, which isn't a bad thing at all. Thank you!

I'd love it if you could repost Spot The Dog.

Many thanks.
