Olympic Smiles - Something's Pushing Me 12"
According to urban legend the only way you can get a hold of Olympic Smiles' media is through buying the long discontinued Debut LP Magazine Issue number 05. Debut was an eighties pop music fan mag that includes a flexi disk of upcoming promising artists. Some of those artists were lucky enough to get a record deal while some remained unknown which made the free flexi their first and last exposure. I've been scouring their single Something's Pushing Me all over the internet hoping to get a copy of it from some private collector but to no avail. I was to the point of giving up until one day the mystery finally unveiled, there was indeed a release aside from Debut and its from Slipped Discs pressed in UK. Luckily I got my copy of it! The B-side Brand New Melody is equally impressive.
I've also been looking in the internet for images of the band or any of their releases but nothing comes up so its safe to say they don't exist at all. I've scanned the front and back of both the sleeve and the record for fans of the band to ponder. When all is said and done I now bring you Olympic Smiles!
