Riot Squad featuring David Bowie - Rare 1967 Mod EP to be released by Acid Jazz

Many thanks to for alerting us to the latest release in the 'Acid Jazz - Rare Mod' series - the upcoming Riot Squad and David Bowie EP from 1967.

Available to pre-order now in 7-inch vinyl, it’s officially listed as The Riot Squad 'The Toy Soldier' EP (AJX329S), featuring the band’s recordings when David Bowie was a member of the band in 1967. The band rehearsed at The Swan in Tottenham, with Bowie on vocals, and played live together for approximately nine weeks. There were also six recording sessions, at which Bowie recorded the four titles featured here.

The songs are:

1) Toy Soldier.

2) Silly Boy Blue.

3) I’m Waiting For My Man, (the Lou Reed song, released before the Velvet Underground)

4) Silver Treetop School For Boys

This release has been produced from the ‘faintest audio imprint of an antiquated reel to reel tape’ and never been officially released before.

If you want one, Acid Jazz is doing pre-orders via eBay for the vinyl, which will then ship in June. It sells for £5.99 + £1.50 p&p.
