Hold Up Phyllis. Watch the Birdie


Fancy some Boomtown Rats which predates Live Aid and  which doesn't feature I  Don't Like Monday's?
Ok then, here goes.
A couple of tracks from a less than pristine condition The Fine Art of Surfacing their third album from 1979 which got to number 7 in the album charts probably on the back of the popularity of the above song.

Selected primarily because of it's close proximity to Bowie in the vinyl shelves.Could have been worse it could have been The Blow Monkeys
