Spelling Mistakes, The - 1980 - Feel So Good 7'' (NZ)

Spelling Mistakes, The - 1980 - Feel So Good 7'' (NZ)
The Spelling Mistakes were a New Zealand punk band which had minor success in the local scene in 1979 and 1980.
Formed in 1979 from the remnants of two bands, Get Smart and The Aliens, their line-up was Nick Hanson (vocals), Julian Hanson (drums), and Warwick Fowler (guitar). Initial bassist, Keith Bacon, was replaced early in 1980 by Nigel Russell.
Their first recording was Reena, which featured on one side of a single (with The Whizz Kids) on Ripper Records in early 1980. It is purported to be inspired by actress Rena Owen of Once Were Warriors fame, who was involved in the punk scene at the time.
After winning a band talent quest, organised by their manager, they signed to Simon Grigg's Propeller Records label, and released a single, Feels So Good in June, 1980. This peaked at #29. A second single was recorded but remained unreleased for two decades as the band split in September 1980 after finding it increasingly difficult to find bookings because of the nature of their under-age following.
They reformed briefly in 1999 but parted ways for good later that year. In 2004 Feels So Good was re-recorded and featured on an Export Gold advert.
A complete, semi-official, collection of available recordings was released in 2002 as a 2-disc set under the name The Spelling Mistakes: Epileptic Apocalypse 1979 - 1999. It was nominated for 'best rock release' by bNet NZ Music Awards in 2003.

I am the sort of hombre who loves to try recent stuff. Right now I'm constructing my private photovoltaic panels. I am making it all by myself without the assistance of my staff. I am using the internet as the only path to acheive this. I ran across a really amazing website which explains how to build solar panels and so on. The internet site explains all the steps needed for solar panel construction.

I'm not sure about how accurate the information given there iz. If some guys over here who have xp with these works can have a peak and give your feedback in the page it will be great and I would highly treasure it, cauze I truly love [URL=]solar panel construction[/URL].

Thanks for reading this. U guys rock.
