The Girls

The Boston scene of the late 70's had many a great band to go around. You had La Peste, Real Kids, The Molls, DMZ, The Infliktors, & Nervous Eaters just to name a few. Then there was The Girls. Great spazzed out art punk. These guys were on a completely different level and frankly, just out of their minds. Their only proper release was a 7" released on Pere Ubu's own Hearthen Records in 1979. They were the only band featured on the label outside of Cleveland. About 7 years later, another record would be unearthed titled Reunion. Now this was not an actual reunion LP, but rather a collected work of their short time of existence. Everything is great, but the 7'' still holds a special place with me. So sit back, pop a couple of tabs, and ENJOY!

Thanks! I know I may tend to fall asleep for a bit every once in awhile, but just give me a good kick in the ass (or should I say brain?) & I'll wake up!

My favourite art punk release. It only got better when I found out it was produced by David Thomas.
