I was obsessed w/ the one album i could order from work for ages, originally ordered it for 68 guns, then realized I knew A LOT, now the just released a best of, basically singles collection. I don't know how this band isn't mentioned at times up there with a lot of similar artists. Granted I was a little young, so perhaps they were that 'shitty pop band' that sounded a lot like everyone else. I'd figure if that was true thought hey wouldn't be spun on things like Indie, I could be wrong though.
Granted it was the late 80's and they weren't doing buttrawk
So in other news, this is just further proof, we need a NEW IRS Records. Someone that really gets it, a label that will be remembered like that one. Where 15 yrs after closing its doors, ppl still want to get the T-shirts with the logo, not because it looks cool, but because what it stood for.
The home of Concrete Blonde, The Alarm, Animals, Adam Ant, Bad Brains, Jeff Beck, Bel Canto, Bolshoi, Buzzcocks, Carter USM, Circle Jerks, Consolidated, and on and on....now they have a lot of unknowns too, but LORD! If someone could create a brilliance like this again!
