I’m just staying on my rule breaking roll of posting songs that weren’t issued on 7″. Back in the groove tomorrow though, promise – very crazy week here. Unlike the Slade post below, this ‘should’ve been a single’ wasn’t from an LP, it just never came out at all. An upstate band from the late 70′s, innocently influenced by all the records and groups you’ll spot first listen, they couldn’t get anyone to release this – and didn’t have the money themselves. The singer recently sent me these as mp3′s and I had totally forgotten how good they were. The lyrical naivete particularly is of charm. If considered a flaw, then totally made up for in hooks and that great guitar sound. It’s never too late. Just don’t put a photo on the sleeve.
