More of a hippy rock outfit than a punk band these guys from Sooke, British Columbia (not far from Victoria) managed to record this one 7" in December, 1980 in an attempt to get more shows from local establishments. The A side ("The Stud") was included on the excellent 2CD compilation called "All Your Ears Can Hear - Underground Music in Victoria, BC 1978 - 1984" along with an unreleased song called "She's Weird". 500 were pressed but only around 50 were distributed at the time. The rest were dumped or ended up in thrift shops years later. It doesn't turn up too often, fetching around $150 at times. More recently a copy sold for around 1/5 of the earlier eBay auction. Being patient can sometimes pay off.
Ascensions - The Stud / Need Some Lovin Times 7" (TA 1381-45, 1981)
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.
