Anyone remember any of these?

Starfighter:Metal band from late eighties
Wish Hounds: Indie, early nineties
Preteen: (possibly Pre Teens or Pritines, not sure of name) Punkish indie
Landrover Festival: Plain weird, tape loops, hoovers etc, 1980's

Googled most and got nowt so I don't hold out much hope. Anyone remember?

The Tea Stains - mercifully shortlived, dreadful early 90's teenage indie.

Thanks Melthebell, I'll have a look at that. The Tea Stains rings a bell, but don't remember Dagger. I think I would quite enjoy a low budget ELP. Don't get much of that stuff these days. Possibly not a bad thing though.

some of the prices are crazy but i make do with the reissues much cheaper or a download for the really obscure albums what will never come out

demon where a good band from the nwobhm era night of the demons is a classic highly reccomended
