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!

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 - "Channel 13"
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?
Student Teachers - "Samantha"
