V.A. - New Rubble Vol. 3 [Watch Your Step]

This is by request. If you expect "rubble-styled" music you will be disappointed with the first and third volume. It's pretty much in the "That Driving Beat" mould although the cover-art lets you think that this is a "Joy Division" memory record. The compilers totally change the music and artwork with volume 4 where they finally live up to the "Rubbles" name. There are some dropouts on a couple of tracks which is a bit annoying. Released on Past & Present (Past & Present PAPRCD 2067 / 2005)

Hi rv,
maybe that's what I meant with the term "dropouts". There's suddenly a short noise that appears after a while. The same happens on another song on this compilation. Sorry but not my fault.

Sorry, I'm probably being really dense, but can we actually hear the music on here? How?!

I'd like to hear the King track in particular.

Or is there an easy way to order?

I put your request on my list. After I've restored my posts I will continue with more uploads (and keep the New Rubbles series in mind).
