THANKS TO COLLIN FOR THIS ONE!
As the great soul-patch philospher and unmatyred monochrome t-shirt
saint Aaron Lewis of the band Staind might say: 'It's Been A While.'
Been a while since my last post and definitely been a while since it
was fashionable for good, long-loined, round-eyed American wimp rock
to garner any attention round the roost of ye olde Sing Sing blog.
And to that I say no more! No more! With this post I demand a return
to North American normalcy! A risorgimento of suburbanity! A
return...to responsibility AND an excuse to post both sides of the
Responsible Teenagers' excellent lone single!
Familiar to most from their track on Teeline (and to Evan Dando
enthusiasts for containing a couple of pre-Lemonheads), this was the
Responsible Teens' lone NYC bow from 1980 on their own Responsible
imprint. Despite the 'R & R Warhead' tagline, the R.T.'s keep it
short and play it clean; two beer limit cos they borrowed mom's car.
And while the presumed A-side to this double B-side single has hogged
the majority of the Hyped2Death spotlight (thus far), I'll stump like
Stephen Douglas and go to my grave believing forever that it's the
faux-Byrds-y D.I.Y. flipper that's the true Most Likely To. Also, if
you harbored any illusions as to the dwindling amounts of cache
remaining within the reservoirs of Max's Kansas City's back room at
the dawn of the Nineteen Eighties, you need only glance at the
rear-side of the sleeve and catch the three dweebs slack-assing there
to realize that it was all over.
