Xpress - 1980 - Junked Up Judy 7'' (UK)
Formed in 1978 by four bored school friends (The Original Bored Teenagers)
The band started in York and gigged around that area supporting the likes of 'Cyanide' & 'Sema 4'. They played support to some of the bigger bands when they visited their area like 'The Revillos', 'The Vibrators' & 'Generation X'.
They self financed their debut release "Junked Up Judy" which was backed with another stage favourite "Stop, Start (And Go Back Again)". This B-side track can be heard on "Bored Teenagers" volume 1.
Sadly the band called it a day in 1982 and leaving us only one killer single. The drummer and vocalist later joined 'The Combine', a local New Wave type band that also featured an ex-member of 'Sema 4'. The guitarist went onto play with 'The Pyjama Party' who also released one single.
The below notes have been taken from the "Bored Teenagers" volume 3 compilation album
"Whatever Happened to Fashion” – 1979/80
One of the tracks from our first studio demo, this is one of the bands early ‘Angry’ songs. “Fashion” comments cynically on the irony of people all buying into the same fashions and images in a bid to be individual…did punk go the same way? The lyrics are as relevant in today’s re-make/re-model pop stars culture as they were back in the good old days of the late 1970s.
Recorded fast! Live it was even faster! Our early motto “the faster the better”.

Sleeping Dogs - 1982 - Beware 7'' (US)
Hats off to the first American band on the CRASS label, formerly known as ARSENAL. Both the music and the record cover are important here. The former is off-beat and original, with lots of effects and superior lyrics; the latter is a well-researched expose of American imperialism with poignant essays. This isn't hardcore, it's the hardest-core. A must.

Secret Syde, The - 1983 - Hidden Secrets (US)
The Secret Syde was an immensely popular American punk rock, neo-psychedelic band from the 1980s. Formed in New Jersey, they achieved more success in The Netherlands, Germany, and the Soviet Union where their music was aired on RADIO MAYAK. They were also very popular in the southern portion of the United States, namely New Orleansand the state of Mississippi.
The band was known for their onstage antics, which included amazing light shows, nude go-go dancers outfitted with black leather sado-masochistic bondage attire and Busby Berkley inspired sado-masochistic tap dance routines, and Steve DeVito playing the guitar with his teeth and rhino-skin whip.
At the height of their popularity, the band opened for Aerosmith's Joe Perry, the Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, Johnny Thunders, G.G. Allin, Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, and Kenny Rogers.
Their first album "Hidden Secrets" was widely overlooked upon its release, but has since become a popular collector’s item. The second album, Erebus went unreleased, but some tracks gained airtime on the BBC in the Netherlands and Radio Mayak in the Soviet Union. They also opened for several national acts. Secret Syde were an opening act for Joe Perry, as well as Black Flag, Motely Crue, Venom, Night Ranger, and Devo.
Writers, commentators, and fans alluded to the almost conspiratorial disdain of the Secret Syde by the mainstream, corporate, music cartel of the era that dominated the production and distribution of popular music.
The extreme financial pressures caused by the virtual corporate blacklisting of the band by the music industry at large forced members of the Secret Syde to consider the bleak options confronting them in the near future, which promised impoverishment and contempt by the mainstream music establishment. Mounting financial pressures and a corrupt abusive management led to further frustrations within the Secret Syde. There reportedly were physical confrontations in the band, deepening drug abuse, and rumors of mental instibility by some members of the Secret Syde. The Secret Syde, penniless, and morally disillusioned by the depraved, degrading mismanagement and voracious greed they viewed within the closed, totalitarian music industry at the time, encouraged the group to disband amicably in 1985.
After their temporary breakup, Lead Guitarist Steve Devito worked for the post office. Drummer Rob Angelo joined a popular MTV based band the Blases, going on a world tour. Bass Player Dave DeSantis obtained work in a local munitions factory in Long Branch, New Jersey and eventually went on to develop rocket propulsion systems for the West German government and United States Army Aviation and Missile Command. Song Writer Jon Davies made one of his first forays into Switzerland and Western Europe where he studied under the Dravidian Spiritual master Krishnamurti in Sana, Switzerland, afterwards working as a janitor for the Holiday Inn in West Long Branch, New Jersey. Jon Davies now calls himself a "Fundamentalist Satanist".
It was then that Wayne Larsen, custom guitar designer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, poet, and childhood remedial speech teacher for Jon Davies, made overtures to Jon to form another incarnation of the Secret Syde. In Late 1985, this refurbished five piece of the Secret Syde consisted of members of the neo-psych-pop phenomenon Laughing Soup Dish,Earth, Wind, and Fire, and former singers from the Lawrence Welk show. This Neo-Syde group opened for The Dead Kennedys in 1986 and received rave reviews. Dead Kennedy's lead singer Jello Biafra wrote complimentary pieces for and about the Secret Syde in the underground music fanzine the Trouser Press and announced he was a big fan of the Secret Syde and their music.
Around that same time Davies fronted Laughing Soup Dish for a few performances, and the band was billed as Jon Davies & The Secret Syde. Wayne Larsen and Jon Davies continued to perform into the 1990s in varios incarnations of their own iconoclastic and controversial punk rock outfits. Some of their best remembered group projects were The Leather Joy Boys, the Straight Satans, and Vlad and the Impalers.
Another version of the Secret Syde including Jon Davies made a surprising and unannounced performance in Konstanz, Germany at Albertus Magnus Haus. Hans Hunsfeld performed on drums and Nuri Zoltanov played the bass guitar while Jon Davies played guitar and vocals.
This Germanic version of the Secret Syde, re-spelled to "Sekrit Side", so as not confuse the new band with the original Secret Syde, recorded a crude demo in Marksburg Castle in Braubach, Germany. Copies of this "Sekrit Side" demo are circulating today among collectors on the internet, but is hard to find. Some of the songs include "Red Dawn", "Bolshevixen" and "Princess of Darkness". Secret Syde fans consider these songs to be some of the best ever written by Jon Davies. Bolshevixen is one of the most listened to Secret Syde songs on their Secret Syde/Rarities page on myspace.

Jerry Harrison - 1981 - The Red and the Black (US)
Jerry Harrison (born Jeremiah Griffin Harrison, 21 February 1949, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin) is an American songwriter, musician and producer. He was the keyboardist and guitarist for the influential New Wave group Talking Heads and an original member of The Modern Lovers.
Harrison played with Jonathan Richman in The Modern Lovers when he was an architectural student at Harvard University. Harrison was introduced to Richman by mutual friend and journalist Danny Fields, and the pair bonded over their shared love of the Velvet Underground. He joined the Modern Lovers in early 1971, playing on their debut album in 1972 (not released until 1976), and leaving in February 1974 when Richman wished to perform his songs more quietly.
Subsequent to his work with The Modern Lovers, Harrison joined Talking Heads; the latter band already had a single out when Harrison left the Modern Lovers to join them.
Harrison's solo albums include The Red and the Black, Casual Gods, and Walk on Water.
After the 1991 break-up of Talking Heads, Harrison turned to producing and worked on successful albums by such bands as Violent Femmes, The Von Bondies, General Public, Live, Crash Test Dummies, The Verve Pipe, Rusted Root, The Bogmen, Black 47, Of A Revolution, No Doubt and most recently The Black and White Years, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and Bamboo Shoots. He was recently confirmed as the producer of the forthcoming debut album by The Gracious Few.
