|F-Word!, with lead singer Rik L Rik, became the first band on the Posh Boy label in 1978. For the first 2 album releases, the Posh Boy logo was a broken musical note.

|PBS 1034: CHRISTIANE F. - Gesundheit! (EP)(IP)|
|There was a remarkable German film in the early 80's entitled Christiane F. :Die Kinder von Bahnhof Zoo an account of the lives of teen prostitutes in Berlin, based upon a memoir written by Christiane Felscherinow. Together with the film's director, the then 19 year old Christiane came to the United States to promote the film; whilst in Hollywood, she had breakfast with Rodney Bingenheimer and Posh Boy at Denny's in Hollywood. Over the meal, she expressed a desire to make a record and somehow before she had left the next stop on her tour, New York, Posh Boy had arranged for David Javelosa of Los Microwaves and Baby Buddha to rendezvous with Christiane and record some tracks. Some different mixes of the same material were released in Germany. In January 1983, Posh Boy came to visit Christiane at the home of her then boyfriend, Alexander von Borsig (Einstuzende Neubaten), a communal flat in Hamburg. Also living in or visiting the flat that day, was the stunning Anja Huwe of X-Mal Deutschland with whom the Posh One went out to dinner.|

106: KIM FOWLEY -(Invasion of the) Polaroid People (COMP)(CASS)
Released on ROTR Vol 1 cassette version only.
|Kim's an old friend of both Rodney and Posh Boy and it would be hard to find a more entertaining person in the music business. The last time I saw him was in the lobby of the Majestic Hotel in Cannes and the just honored Man of the Year Clive Davis was ignoring the waiting throngs and giving Kim a bear hug. We used this effort of Kim's as a replacement for Cristina on the cassette version of the first volume of Rodney On The Roq.|
