---------------------------------------------------------------------
Info: Jodey were a shortlived NWOBHM band who released one single in 1979. The 45 in question, "The Rocker", on the Ellie Jay label, is now one of the rarest & most sought after NWOBHM items in collector circles. A recent auction saw a copy go for £150! Not bad for a band which had formed as a bit of fun whilst it's members were at college together.

After Jodey split in 1980, guitarist Pat Shayler & bassist John Barr went on to found CHINASTREET, the band would later change it's name to CHINATOWN. In 1981, on Airship Records, Chinatown released the "Short & Sweet" 7" and, later in the year, the "Play It To The Death" album. In 1982 they played at the Reading Festival and had two songs featured on the album culled from the festival performances. Barr, however, had jumped ship in late '81, and joined LAST FLIGHT, appearing as the vocalist on their Heavy Metal Records "Dance To The Music" 7", which would prove to be their only release.
