Some Nerve - Gina/Believe In A Lie 7" (Orange Records, 1982)

Very rare 45 on David Peel's Orange label. Both sides are sheer power pop gold! "Believe In A Lie" beats out the track "Gina" but only by a slight margin. Sounds like it may even be GG Allin on vocals? Don't know, don't care. All that matters is that this single is as solid as stone. Presumably sleeveless.

Brian's Children - Cut Her Hair 7" (Ugly Dog Records, 1979)

"During a break in his regular role as percussionist in jazz trio Broomer, Mars & Smith, John Mars created a rock outlet for his vocal attributes in 1979 called Brian's Children - a snide little aside in reference to the dearly departed Rolling Stones member Brian Jones." - Canoe Jam!

Da-Works - 4 Song EP (Hard Labor Records, 1980)

Great early New Jerseyan punk that is apparently pre-Fatal Rage (another great Jersey band on the legendary Mutha label). While all four songs are good in their own way I like "Sid Did" and "Modern History" best of all.
