Fascinating stuff from 1969.

Hello,

I've listened to most of the new tracks. It's got a lot styles with an Elvis touch. I'm going to listen once or twice more and I'll post some reflections.

Hello,

Alpha Boys School - No Excuse

I've got a few albums by this bunch. They're very good - perhaps too good. They could use a little chaos or rough edges. They attempt this at the end of the video. They're worth pursuing.

My class is discussing a book on new wave tomorrow, so I'm checking out some early videos by some of the bands. Jesus Christ but early B-52s were visually compelling. This is equal parts arty craziness and playfully cool. It's such a fuck-you to rock seriousness, including punk anger. More and more, I can't help but think that what was happening on the American side of early punk was so much more interesting and thought-provoking, even if it's the UK stuff that changed my life.

Just a killer tune and a visually great band. The perfect combo.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

I'd say laughably good. Living After Midnight is better though.

Specifically the video is what Im talking about.

Too bad the Donnas never did a video for their cover of Living After Midnight.

Did this ever cross the border or the ocean? Helix were a typical meathead Canadian metal band that produced this gem. Just a perfect bit of cliched headbanging, fist shaking mainstream 80s metal. Perfect for cutting off the sleeves to your jean jacket.

Heard the song. Some metal dudes probably played it in high school.

My recollection is that at my school it had sufficient crossover that non-heshers dug it. It's something I like more now—semi-ironically, kind of like Ratt's "Round and Round"—than at the time.
