You know what's better than having friends who run amazing record stores? Having said friends who know what you like. I picked this up at my friend's store Lp's Lps, on Lp's recommendation, when I was in Toronto a couple weeks ago and I have been itching to get it uploaded so I could share it here. It's also not very often I get to introduce something to the internet that wasn't there before. Especially something I love so much!
I had hoped to have a little more information about the group when it was time to share, but wouldn't you know it, I haven't found any! So, let's get what I do know out of the way, because that won't take very long. I know it was recorded at Spaceward Studios, who boasts a crazy list of artists who have recorded there. I know it was recorded in 1982. On the back of the sleeve there are ads for 5 different retailers with a note "Thanks are due to the above sponsors without whom this record would not have apppeared." I don't know if this is some kind of joke or if it really took the sponsorship of three AV stores, an instrument store and a shoe store to get this thing out. I assume this was self-released as nothing else was put out on the Projected Image label. Members are listed as:
Paul Day-Guitars and Vocals
Pete Sparrow-Drums, Vocals, Mini Moog
I have gone ahead and uploaded both sides of this single and they are here. I can't decide which side is better but Twist and Survive is pretty damn near perfect. If you read my last post on the Corvettes, you know I have been trying to track this down through any way possible. So, as always, if you have any info I can be reached here, through our Facebook or at firstname.lastname@example.org. In any case, this record is great on its own and I hope y'all love it as much as I do.
