The one you just listed(and as i've posted already on the 'What are you listening to' thread) is one of my favourites.Mp3 blogs are great because you find rare and sometimes unrealeased gems and you get to read about them as well.

Best of Scott's thrift-store rummages.
Wide variety of ephemeral weirdness and puke with Tony Rettman's excellent writing.
Fatty Jubbo's wonderfully weird picks
No mp3's, but there's some of the best music writing to be read anywhere.
Entire EP's and occasional LP's worth of rare punk and HC from the classic bootleggable era.
UK-based blog with enthusiasm for all new sounds

I never really gave blogs much attention, but after searching a few of the ones posted I found this:
It's a nice little site. It seemed, to me, like there was a lot of prog rock on there, though.

The early Thatcher years were a grim time for Britain. The world economic slump bit deep and UK dole queues were lengthening, while neo-Nazis gathered in the shadows. All was not gloom, however - as usual, music came to the rescue. At one point it seemed as though every second person in London was in a band, ran a small independent record label or reviewed gigs for the NME.

This website offers a random slice of the music of the time, in the form of eight tracks from North East London independent label Melodia Records' Red Tape. The tape was a 1984 benefit release, and featured 'leftover' raw-edged recordings donated by bands whose normal output was refined to a far higher level. The result is, to say the least, of uneven technical quality - but, in my view, that is what gives the tape its own peculiar appeal.

Sadly, Melodia is no more and, to my knowledge, none of the bands featured are still gigging, though most of the individuals involved are still going strong in music and media. Take this for what it is, and enjoy it as a set of out-takes from pop history. And so, on to the music...

Rato Records Blog

In this little corner it’s my intention to reveal and share music and songs that had made yesterday’s delights (the 50s, the 60s and the 70s), a time where life was more beautiful and less complicated. For the people of my generation I hope to give the memories back again; for the others, the youngest, I only can give the expectations of discovery. Have fun!
