The Very Things

Asked by someone a long time ago. Finally got around ripping the early records of The Very Things.
Don't think the band needs any introduction. The Very Things was the follow-up of The Cravats. Shend and R. Dallaway with a new drummer with the nickname Disneytime. Gone is also the sax, as Svor Naan went to play with Pigbros.
'The Gong Man' released on CRASS-offshoot Corpus Christi, the other 2 on Reflex Records (And Also The Trees, Two, Noseflutes). There's one more song from this period 'The Hole' not included here, but you can find that one on the 'Gunfire And Pianos' comp. album posted in the blogosphere.

1. The Gong Man
2. The Colours (Are Speaking To Me)

Mummy You're A Wreck 12" (Reflex Records-12 RE 9-1985)
1. Mummy You're A Wreck
2. When Father Papered The Parlour
3. The Light Pours Out Of Mummy's House

The Bushes Scream While My Daddy Prunes LP (Reflex Records-LEX 3-1984)
1. The Conqueror
2. Down The Final Flight

Bedankt! De lp heb ik zelf indertijd gekocht.
Zo gauw de nieuwe ramen hier erin staan, haal ik mijn pick-up terug boven en rip wat platen die hier ook moeten gepost staan :-)

En nu... The Cravats?

THANK YOU! These guys were/are great! Btw, "The Bushes Scream While My Daddy Prunes" was reissued by Fire Records in 1993 on CD, but it is currently unavailable:

However, there are some copies available at Amazon...

Once again, thanks a lot!
