    Awesome – such a great song.

    Listen in context of anyone else in the charts in 1982 – they sounded like nobody else. Thanks Paul. 🙂

    I’ll echo the other posters thanking you for putting these classic Associates 12″ singles up. I still have all these but no turntable. I have these tracks on cd but the 12″ singles sound the best, no question. I hope you can keep this going for a while! Thanks again – The Associates have always been one of my favorite bands!

    DjPaulT,

    This blog is insanely awesome! I can’t tell you how many of these vinyls I used to have before my whole stack of 6,000 vinyls was stolen.

    The rips are perfect and bring back great memories!

    .T.H.A.N.K. .Y.O.U. .V.E.R.Y. .M.U.C.H.

    By the way, I love the ON-Usound Megamixes and would love to see more top quality megamixes and remixes of 80s Synthpop.

    Otherwise, I am not going to bother you with pesky requests as you are doing a phenomenal job fulfilling requests before we could even think of them …. lol

    here are just a few items I have been looking for in good quality 320K rips that I can’t seem to find. Maybe you have some of these and would consider them sometime in the future. I’m sure I will check in daily:

    – – Breaks From Da Crates Volume 3 (Freezstyle Recordings – BC003)
    – more Rhythm Stick, especially Volume 1-1
    – Hot Tracks The Edge Volumes 1-13
    – Any White Label from the 80s or 90s
    – DJ Tools Volume 3 (Hype Records (11) – TOOL CD 46687)
    – Promo-5 (Not On Label (Promo Series) – PR 1005) and any of the Promo series
    – Shark Attack One (Shark (2) – SA CD-01)
    – DM* • Erasure – That Girl DJ Presents DM Erasure Blended (Not On Label – PM003)
    – Hateful Head Helen – Hateful Head Helen (Too Hot Records – TH001)
    – Just-Dis – Container Love (Ultrahard – 0630-10910-2)
    – Resistors – Tiny Scars + Force of Habit single
    – DJ 43 ‎– Pepper Spray
    – The Ethics ‎– To The Beat Of The Drum (La Luna)
    – Plastikman ‎– Spastik
    – Planet Soul ‎– Set U Free (Rabbit In The Moon Remixes)
    – Various ‎– Delusions Of Grandeur

    Like I said, I don’t mean for this to be a huge request list. Just, if you have one or two of these, maybe you will consider uploading them some time.
