I remember hearing "Dead Rock n Rollers" on WFMU on Pat Duncan's show as a teenager. Thanks for posting this, I can finally hear the complete discography of this band.

I did the layout and cover for this one. I'm proud of the sign graphic; had a lot of fun with it.

It is a Grand Theft Audio release. I guess Brian (GTA) and the band aren't getting paid much, since this is being downloaded.

Any chance of getting a new download link? They are all dead. I would love to get hold of this one. Saw them back in the 80's at City Gardens in NJ and picked up the album then. Thanks!
