Okay, I'm not sure if the singer from Subterfuge is actually English but he may as well be, hence their inclusion in this series. This is another one of those records I've owned forever but don't think I ever actually listened to. Maybe it was the dorky cover that turned me off initially (what made me buy it then?), but again, as with the Breakouts EP I posted awhile back, I was actually surprised to find myself liking it. Very UK82-ish sounding, which is okay by me, and from Las Vegas no less.Subterfuge

The Dischords did, however, definately have a British singer and were from the So-Cal area. Sadly, I sold my copy* of this one a few years ago. The audio here is from one of my many, dozens of obsessively made cassettes which I've somehow managed to hold onto, all these years later. Sorta miss making those. One things for sure, it was a lot easier than this digitizing crap; just put the needle down, hit play & record, and go. Even with the hours I used to put into drawing agonizingly faithful representations of the bands' logos on the cassette J-cards (what can I say, I was young...and lonely, apparently), I feel like it takes longer now.
