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!

The other great thing about this compilation is that it contains the original version of Chains by The Wad. A track which Soul Asylum does a great cover of on their Clam Dips EP.

The above statement is seen to be contradictory. The situation is very critical and
need an experience complainer to resolve it.

because finding Mr. A is so tough/ close to impossible on the net, it would be great if, in the future, you could post his albums as well ;-)
