I'm new here and also a big fan of all that old 80s music. I saw this asked above:

[quote]What does the R.E.R.B stand for?[/quote]

I can confirm that it stands for Rusty Egan / Richard Burgess (the producers).

I saw Shock play in London circa 1982/3 and even have some photos somewhere when they appeared as Pleasure and the Beast. I also have a TV clip of them doing Screen Me I'm Yours.

Several members of Shock (Tik and Tok, plus Robert Pereno) popped up in the 1982 horror film Xtro...

I'm intrigued as to whom forum member wildoscar is - I also used to hang out at the Batcave, plus numerous other early 19809s London clubs (Blitz, Club for Heroes, Padded Cell, Studio 21, etc etc) Ah... those were the days...

Sadly my entire record collection was stolen back in 1982 - all my punk and new wave went. Most ended up in Notting Hill gat's Record and Tape Exchange.

However, two friends I've known since then still have all their early 80s record collections. What are you looking for?

Just came across this project and particularly this track for the first time ever.....

Here is the full 12" (a/b side extended versions) and the 7" version of Angel Face (a-side)

Still looking for the shorter version of R.E.R.B. on the 7" b-side.....if anyone would be kind enough to upload.....

Thanks.... :)
