It’s a shame these Long Island, New York retro new wavers never really reached a wider audience. Although they were quite popular in Sweden and got a good amount of exposure being featured in alt-reads like The Village Voice, Alternative Press — and even the mainstream newspapers, Daily News and New York Post — they just never really got “there.”
Hell, I was from NYC and pretty deep into the indie scene at the time and I never really knew about these guys until around ’03 or ’04 maybe. I think it was a client tracking at the studio I worked for that turned me on to them.
Anywhats, they’ve been done with for almost a decade at this point, but their tunes live on. This song is the b-side off of their first 7″, The Last New Wave Record which was recorded way back in ’94. Good lord I’m gettin’ old…
