Good rockin' single. Not entirely sure if this is their first or their second 45 but both records have one really good track on each of 'em. Not even really certain if this was released in 1978, '79 or '80...
Superb Michigan rock 'n' roll with great and hilarious lyrics! "Momma says I'm a disgrace -To the human race. Daddy wants to punch me right in my face, 'cause I'm a disgrace, to the human race..." Some copies are translucent green while others are black (demo).
I believe that the first time that I heard the track "I'm A Chucklehead" was on one of those really great Chuck Warner Hyped2Death releases back in the early 2000's. Probably never would of heard this band otherwise. Nam sayin'?
"The Bolivians had the D.I.Y. look, but they were plainly comfier borrowing from the Seeds and Max Frost on "Underground Passion." The rest is a discomfiting mishmash of Pere Ubu, Contortions, and maybe Root Boy Slim. Pre-Secrets [Teenline #102]."
Mystery promo record featuring a parody song of the Beach Boys' "Barbara Ann." Not sure where these guys were from? Perhaps from Vancouver? A man named Floyd Turbo is responsible for the writing of the lyrics.
One of the finest powerpop singles ever recorded. There are a lot of others that I would consider just as good but for some reason the track "Three Chord City" just does it for me. B-side is a flop but the A-side is a top pop!
Not sure if one came before the other but there are two sleeve variations.
Their 2nd, and arguably best, single on A.P.E. Records. While their first single is decent enough with the track "Coast To Coast", I think that that record pales in comparison to this one, with the great song, "I'm A Fanatic."
Bar band from Chicago, IL. While all the songs are catchy in their own way, the track "Who Are The Boys?" is the definite stand-out track - I think it may of been featured on a compilation, as well? I posted their more punk release a few months back but figured I'd post this as well... Same picture sleeve for both releases.
Florida mod/punk on Orange Records, but not the Orange Records that was affiliated with GG Allin. This is their 2nd release. The band also released an earlier 45 and a 10" record. No sleeve issued with either single.
