Zox (USA, 1979)

US rock obscurity. The A side might even be included in the powerpop / punk area as well depending on your standards. There's an address in Englishtown, NJ written on the A side whatever that might indicate.

Zox - Strange Love / Star 7" (Pyramis PR 001, 1979)

Stewart Struzer (USA, 1983)

Another US rock obscurity for today, this one is from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. I like the B side on this one.

Stewart Struzer - Blow Away / Drone 7" (Stew Records (no #), 1983)

Some Swedish 7"s (1979 - 1983)

Here are several random Swedish 7"s. You'll find punk, powerpop, reggae, rock and even some prog. I don't know much about any of them. The date of the Infektion is not clear - different places say 1978, 1979 or 1981. Do I hear 1980?

96% - Fotomodell / Förr i tiden 7" (Noon SNS-831, 1983)
Blixt Gordon - I dina ögon / Sussie 7" (Efel SEF 7955, 1979)
Infektion - Dimman // Hasch / 1-2-3-4 .... 7" (TYP-1, 19??)
Respect - Jag vill va som Lennart Hyland / Rysk Roulette 7" (CTR 480, 1980)

Witchcraft (Switzerland, 1983)

Metal/rock band from Wetzikon (near Zürich). 

Witchcraft - Runnin' Away / Dead End Street 7" (Musk mp 10-829, 1983)

Dr. No (Peru, 1983)

Check out the dudes on the sleeve. Now imagine what the record might sound like. It probably wasn't what you were expecting.

Dr. No - Turn Out The Lights / Out Of Style 7" (CBS CSR-1243, 1983)

Los B-83 (Peru, 1983)

We continue the cheesy posts from Peru with this ... Sound familiar?

Los B-83 - Di-Dom Di-Dom I and II (Para tí, para mí / Es así, dilo así) (CBS CSR-1239, 1983)

Homo Electrica (Sweden, 1977)

This one was posted by on the Punk Business Manager site way back in 2008. I thought it was time for a repost in case anyone missed it. There's lots of info in the original post but basically four high school lads form a band to attract girls and record this lo-fi gem after a school concert. They pressed up 200 copies as cheaply and as D.I.Y. as possible.

Homo Electrica - Beat On / Surviver 7" (Violent Vinyl / Whirling One WNG 1, 1977)

Illusions (Australia, 1981)

There really isn't anything I can say about this LP that hasn't been said here.

Illusions - Mirror Image LP (Shark SF359, 1981)
(Won't Look Back / Say It Isn't True / Gone Too Far / Idle Hours // My Favourite Pastime / Café Le Glove / I Was There / Looking In The Eyes Of Love)
