Message:Greetings from SWEDEN!!!

I have Your complete catalouge including the rare Johnny Friendly 12 picture sleeve with no text.

I love You guys. Just Got Lucky and the whole album Like Gangbusters is still so great, why should it take me til 1996 before I finally could hear the tracks from Skin And Bone? I still listen to Your music everyday. 1983 was the BEST year ever in music.

Hope to see You guys back live just like I have seen Tears For Fears + Stray Cats back better than ever.

All the BEST from Halmstad, SWEDEN

MessageA great band that was vhewed up and spat out by the music industry. At a time when most music was a mechanical mush bands like JoBoxers were keeping the human element alive.

I never got to see them live, being 13 me mum wouldn't let me venture from Shepherds Bush to Brixton! but then i never got to see XTC either but the music on the records is good enough for me.

I remember ringing RCA daily to find out when 'Skin and Bone' would be released and being gutted every time they told me some load of bollocks date and it never arrived. I even got 'is this really the first time' on 7" and 12". I felt a bit of a berk doing that in WH Smith! 15 is not an easy age to be doing things on your own....

Still, i bought the CD compilations and was not disappointed. IF RCA had shown some gonads and kept them going, who knows?

They were a soundtrack to my teens and an obsession for a while. Along with QPR, Adam Ant, XTC and Fiesta magazine. They don't make 'em like that no more!

Keep it up chaps. smilie

MessageHey Mr Bostock, good to see a site to the best band of the 80's and nice to see you at Dig's gig at the Rockabilly rave the other week (the man rocked as usual). The Boxers, what can I say, nothing rocked like the guys live. The Madness tour and the Jumping Jetty tour come to mind the most and being allowed to do lights for some of the smaller gigs was special. Loads of stories like Sean and me absailing down the side of the Holiday Inn from the seventh floor and shooting up the hotel room (in Ipswich I think) with an air gun amongst my favourites, plus loads more that will stay with me forever. Keep up the good work.

MessageAt last, the lads have got a website. Billy & myself are still boxers boys big time.
We are still keen on their music (but lost the dress sence). JoBoxers are still in our hearts
(you cant loose the impact they gave on musicians even though its 20 odd years ago).
The thing we would love to see is a re-union? Personally (Dan) i would love to work
with the guys on some material which reflects their style of music,
(Something thats devoid in this musical society today (raw talent)).... Be good (Billy/Dan)
