DESIRA - Gorilla / Angel Demonic (Saga To Kong) (Thunder 197?)
Here's a total obscurity released in the US maybe between 1976 and '78. Gorilla is a brutal glam-punker piece with loud guitar and wild vocals produced by Damon Alberti and Sam Kleinman. The single is accompanied by an amazing poster that reads "Don't Listen Alone...Recorded In The Jungle". Enjoy!

JETT BLACK - Mademoiselle / You Make Everything Dirty (Fiddlers 1977)
Great single by obscure US outfit Jett Black.
I couldn't find any info about this band, apart from a Canadian 80's AOR band with the same name, but I don't think it's the same group.
However, both tracks on this single are a tough combination of hard rock, glam and punk. "Mademoiselle" was written in 1976 but the single was released one year later. US issue produced by Jett Black & Michael Bruce.

THE LOFTUS ROADRUNNERS - Queens Park Rangers / Drive Me Down To QPR (Gama 1977)
UK pressing of this amazing football-glam two sider by The Loftus Road Runners. Both songs were produced by Max Hole and Wayne Bardell and written by Bruce Thomas, who also joined Elvis Costello and The Attractions.
With the help of my friend Tim "Purr" and his great compilation, "On The Glitter Ball", other singles like this will be soon on Proudfoot Sound Blog.
