THIRTEEN - Girls Aren't the Same 7"

Image of THIRTEEN - Girls Aren't the Same 7"


This power pop three-piece formed in 1977 and never managed to gain press coverage from their lone 7” released in France, Germany and Holland, but not in the UK. Recorded in the summer of 1978 with Phil Cordell co-producing, drums on the 7” were played by Mark Ferrick following the death of his brother Jim shortly before the session.

"Girls Aren’t the Same" is a fine powerpop performance - the harmonies and guitars are spot on, however the B side is the killer in my book. Featuring Ian McKean's driving and cutting guitars, "Teddy Boy" rocks out in fine straight ahead ROLLING STONES/STREAK mode.
