Curtiss A

Here's the first solo single by Curtiss A. I Don't Wanna Be President was released in 1979 on Twin Tone records. Prior to this release, Curtiss A was featured both in The Spooks & two other acts on the Big Hits of Mid-America Vol. III. Those two acts were of course Curtiss A & The Originals and Buzz Barker & The Atomic Bums. The second act did an earlier, slower version of Land Of The Free, the b-side of the single mentioned here. What was special about this line-up was that it consisted of Curtiss A (Buzz Barker) and the Suicide Commandos (The Atomic Bums). So here's the comp. tracks and the single. Enjoy!
