Moving Parts - How Could I

Maloo has sent me this track "How Could I" from little
remembered Brisbane band Moving Parts and this leaflet
from a venue of the time.
Thanks Maloo, now over to you

Hi, Moving Parts track attached. I was the drummer in
another band (The Proteens), we used to play with this
band.
Poster attached.

MP were I feel the best live band in this period of time.
I have no idea what happened to them.
These tracks were on a giveaway single from a gig.

great blog, thank you for your effort,

Maloo





And Steve Aka Baskingshark has added to this post,
thanks Steve


I remember seeing Moving Parts in Sydney supporting
INXS.
It was a small venue (I forget which) in 1980
just before I
NXS had released their first album.
I thought Moving Parts were by far the better of the two
bands that night.
Their song "Living China Doll" is still one of my
favourites
from that era.


Here's the link to the singles
"Living China Doll" and "Chevy" 
and the track "How Could I"

I have both their singles and can put up a link if there's any interest.

Hi,
Moving Parts were indeed a Sydney band! Mark Woods was a friend of mine, he was based at Camden. Later on he formed 'Jump Incorporated' - their hit 'Sex & Fame' can be found on youtube - Mark is on guitar & vocals - man was it over a quarter century ago? ...sheeeez

Hi all This band was a Double J/JJJ fave back in the early 80s with the single China Doll getting huge rotation along with the Motivators with After the Fall. They did indeed evolve into Jump Inc who I saw several times in the mid 80s. Moving Parts played my old school Parra High in the early 80s. What a great single this was. Thanks so much for making this available. I have been hunting it down for years! Cheers
