I saw the song "Sleazy People" once described as "cool ultra new wave" so I decided to take a chance on it for $5 but I couldn't find much info about Al Pic & The Shovels. Likely from the Niagara Falls / St. Catharines, Ontario area, I know of 3 7"s that were released sometime in the late 70s or early 80s. None of them have a picture sleeve that I've seen or any release dates on the labels. One list gave a date of 1978 and another said "early 80s". Other than "Sleazy People" I don't care much for any of their other songs. The B side is best avoided but if you do like it, their other 2 7"s (On My Mind / Fortunate Fool (Cherry CR 1001) and Sunday Behind / Love Passing By (Cherry CR 1003)) might interest you.
All of the Divshare audio links are dead. I haven't yet decided what, if anything, to do about it.

My Want List
Any good obscure punk/powerpop (especially Swedish, Swiss and Finnish) that I don't have such as:
CANADIAN DEMO/LIVE RECORDINGS - anything from The Unknowns, Zro4, The Negatives, Stark Naked and The Fleshtones, Extroverts, Airborne, Pat Bay and The Malahats, Sikphuxz, Woods Are Full Of Cuckoos, Parking Lot, etc
MASTERBEATS - Any cassette releases (Kitchener, Ontario, Canada band, early 80's)
MR. SCIENCE - Terror As Pop and any other cassettes (Canada, 1980s)
NILP - Dark Side Of Nilp cassette (Switzerland, c1983)
I'm mainly interested in punk and powerpop records and bands from 1977 - 1983 along with some synth/electronic things as well. I'm particularly interested in bands from Sweden, Switzerland and Finland, although if it is good it doesn't matter where it is from. If you have some obscurity that you think I might be interested in, drop me an email. If you're looking to hear something in particular, ask and I may have it.
