As well as the Redskins there's some other bands I love like Makin' Time & The Housemartins. I saw them both live back in the mid 80s and still have the signed poster of Makin' Time from when I saw them at the Redcar bowl and The Housemartins bootleg of their gig at Hartlepool Town Hall. I was also a fan of The Untouchables first album 'Wild Child'.

Makin' Time were great live - I saw them a few times - Fay Hallam used to write to me and she sent me a version of 'Pump It Up' in a sleeve that was never released. I got it signed by the band and still have it now.I recently bought a best of Makin' Time CD. I owned about eight copies of the first album on vinyl, every single one of them jumped all over the place, kept taking them back to the shop. i eventually settled on two copies which between them almost had every track without a jump. Great to get the CD and hear the songs how they should be.
I'd love to see their second album out on CD someday as I think it's better than 'Rhythm & Soul'.
Did you know that 'Rhythm & Soul' has been available on CD since about 1992? As I have a copy, although it only ever came out in Japan. I also liked the other bands Fay has played in since Makin' Time - The Gift Horses, The Prime Movers & Phaze. I must get round to buying her new album by her band The Fay Hallam Trinity.
