B-Movie- Early Singles

When I think of the best UK bands, few spring to mind quicker than B-Movie. I’ve covered them twice here before, once with their 1985 LP Forever Running and then a few years later with their unstoppable Nowhere Girl 12”. I’ve been meaning to upload their earlier singles for some time now, probably years, but it just slipped through the cracks. I hope you’ll forgive me, folks.

That said, contained within this zip file is the majority of B-Movie’s early works, starting from their first 12”s in 1980 and spanning until 1984. Quite a prolific period for the band, with most of their best songs being issued in this two year time period.  Here’s the rundown:

B-Movie- Take Three 7” (1980)
1. The Soldier Stood Alone
2. Drowning Man
3. Soundtrack

    I love Remembrance Day, it's got such a boyish energy to it.

    Frankie, I wanted to e-mail you the following release for your listening pleasure but couldn't find a contact e-mail, so here it is rather inelegantly foisted: http://marcotuliothrash.bandcamp.com/album/mouvement-nocturne

    Also I dj'd at 'Coco 68' while you were djing in Coco 66 for the exotic birds night fairly recently.

  3. great stuff, I have the maxi-single of Nowhere Girl and Ive been looking for an MP3 of that 12 inches version of Rememberance day for a long time!


  4. […] two tracks by the duo of Cindy Ecstasy (Soft Cell/Marc and the Mambas) and Rick Holliday (early B-Movie lineup).  It’s as good as it gets for club-ready, sex-dripping electro, and sounds to me […]

    Thanks for taking the time to lovingly post all this great music.

  8. Thanks heaps! Under rated! Once in a while you can still hear the songs being played in Manila radios.

    Nowhere Girls is the second most underrated track ín music history – right after Vienna for not going to No. 1 in 1981.
