When I think of the best UK bands, few spring to mind quicker than B-Movie. I've covered them twice here before, once with their 1985 LP Forever Running and then a few years later with their unstoppable Nowhere Girl 12''. I've been meaning to upload their earlier singles for some time now, probably years, but it just slipped through the cracks. I hope you'll forgive me, folks.
That said, contained within this zip file is the majority of B-Movie's early works, starting from their first 12''s in 1980 and spanning until 1982. Quite a prolific period for the band, with most of their best songs being issued in this two year time period. I've left out the original 12'' I covered, which you can get here, but I have included the b-side to the 7'' and certain 12'' editions. Here's the rundown:
B-Movie- Take Three 7'' (1980) 1. The Soldier Stood Alone 2. Drowning Man 3. Soundtrack
B-Movie- Nowhere Girl (1980) 1. Nowhere Girl 2. This Still Life 3. Institution Walls 4. Airplanes & Mountains 5. Left Out In The Cold 6. Remembrance Day
B-Movie- Remembrance Day 12'' (1981) 1. Remembrance Day 2. Institution Walls (Remix)
B-Movie- Marilyn Dreams 7'' (1981) 1. Marilyn Dreams 2. Film Music Part 1 bonus- Marilyn Dreams (Extended Version)- from 12''
B-Movie- Nowhere Girl 7'' (1982) 1. Nowhere Girl (Short Version) 2. Scare Some Life Into Me
