Mechanix - "Maxine/Desperate" 7" (Tempe Records, 1982)

This record used to be on the elusive side until a box of these were discovered, now there's (seemingly) plenty to go 'round. Cool powerpop from the arid land of Arizona. Never housed in a PS.

I'm glad I never dated any girl named Maxine otherwise, much like any song with an ex-girlfriend's name as the title, it would be ruined for me. Good summertime music just in time for the summertime!

Student Teachers - Channel 13/Christmas Weather 7" (Ork Records, 1979)

Five piece new wave band from New York. Great jangly guitars on this single. The band existed from 1978-80 and then, just like dust in the wind, they were gone. They also have a second single and a handful of tracks on a compilation that I can't quite think of...

Student Teachers - "Easter 78 - Halloween 80" 7" EP (Not Quite Records, 1980)

Here is a track from their second self-released single. The bass sound on the song "Samantha" is incredibly pleasing to my refined and regal aural tastes. Now where did I leave my grey poupon?
