Mockers - Forever Tuesday Morning

Forever Tuesday Morning/ I Don't Want You

Andrew Fagan's Mockers were hugely successful in an early-mid 80s New Zealand obsessed with then-current crop of British pop. Fagan's vocal inflection (slightly nasal, almost morrissey like at times) were the absolute focal point of the band, a pop-orientated rotating cast of support men, specifically noteable for the mammoth hit (and a genuine kiwi classic, despite how british it sounds) 'Forever Tuesday Morning'. Here to download is that single,the b-side is a live track.

Non Stop Dancers - Surprise Surprise

Surprise Surprise/Spider And The Fly/Shake This City/Armadillo Rhumba/Dancing/What A Way To Go/Midnight Matinee/House Across The Street/Too Young To Die/Mobbing Me/Spellbound

I won this back in 1984 when 2SM was king of the airwaves if you were the right number caller you would win 10 albums that were on 2SM's rotation at the time must have won a couple of hundred. Another album that I have never heard until now so that means I've owned it for 26 years without a listen and I must admit I didn't mind it.
Formed in Newcastle then relocated to Sydney They tranversed a wide range of styles from Ska, pop, reggae and swing. The single Shake this City was released October 1984 and reached No. 44 on the Australian charts and got to No. 22 in Sydney.
As a bonus I've included 3 live tracks the only info I have is 1986 Revesby, Sydney so maybe the Worker's Club.
