A.D. 1984 - Clockwork Generation

Another excellent song from A.D. 1984, it's not as good as 'The Russians Are Coming' (follow the link for this earlier posting), but it will still get stuck inside your head.
Yet again a background 'Stranglers' riff with a very catchy tune. The b-side is an instrumental, average in my opinion, but you tell me what you think?

Band: A.D. 1984
Label: Grand Prix
Year: 1981
Tracks:
1. Clockwork Generation
2. Melody In The Key Of Time

Ripped from glorious scratched vinyl:

Hi Longy I found the same picture but was hoping for a better scan. If I cant get one I will use it.

I'm afraid I have never heard of Vertical Hold, I put a post up to see if anyone has it.

All the best

Cheers Gary

Vertical Hold were a UK band who were around from 1981 to 84 ish

They had 3 singles that I know of

1) Rubber Cross bw Injustice
2) Angel Dust bw Four years/Dub Years
3) Biohazard/The Time That War Won (double a side)

I've looked everywhere in cyberspace but no joy : - (

Gary,

I bought this in must be about 84. At the time I was obsessed by A Clockwork Orange and got this just because of the title. Record's now gone missing and I haven't got a turntable anyway so I was amazed to find it here! Trouble is the link's gone down!! ANy chance of a re-up? Cheers, mate.
p.s. as I recall the cover clearly said that all guitars on this record were basses - kinda puts the b-side into a bit of perspective doesn't it!

Hi anon, I just checked and both the Megaupload and the Rapidshare links are still working.

The z-share and badongo are dead.

Hope this helps

Gary

Sorry Rich, I didn't see your name there, the above comment should help.

Bloody hell, that was quick!

Just checked again and Rapidshare DOES work! Must be my computer (knackered old bit o crap!).

Thanks for this, matey, and great site, by the way! I've got about 200 punk and other singles stuck up the loft. Sooner or later I'll be getting myself a converter turntable so when I do I'll be in touch.

Cheers again

Rich

hi rich, glad it worked, the download sites can be a bit flakey, its often worth a few try's.

look forward to you sorting through your own collection, always happy to post anything that not available (credit to yourself as well, off course)

All the best
