Alley Cats - 1978 - Nothing Means Nothing Anymore 7''

Alley Cats - 1978 - Nothing Means Nothing Anymore 7''
ALLEYCATS ~ Nothing Means Nothing Anymore b/w Give Me A Little Pain 7in.
(LOM22 — released March 1978)

Dianne Chai: vox, bass
Randy Stodola: vox, guitar
John McCarthy: drums

DB: The Alleycats were from Lomita in South Bay. Michigan emigre Randy Stodola was the songwriter/guitarist and driving force, with a penchant for surreal narrative in his lyrics. His wife, Dianne Chai, on bass, and John McCarthy on drums made for one of the tightest outfits around. Musically they probably most resembled meat 'n' potatoes more than any other Dangerhouse punk act.
The Alleycats was really my first opportunity to really get to run a session and everything they did just ran like clockwork. We just basically stood there letting the tape run. It was amazing how professional some of these bands were. At this point we were starting to get recognition for the fact that other people had tried to put out things like that but had a very hard time getting them to sound professional. BMF: Black vinyl only. 2500 pressed in two batches January 1978 - April 1978. Two picture sleeves issued: a black & white "live shot" foldover PS and a color "lounge" PS which is simply a double-sided 7" x 7" square.
