Flashcubes (45 RPM) 1978

Christi Girl b/w Guernica & Got No Mind
The Byrds-ish "Christi Girl" appeared on Greg Shaw's BOMP Sampler LP, WAVES - Vol 1 (which also featured 20/20, The Beat, and The Romantics) and on the Rhino D.I.Y. CD, COME OUT AND PLAY, American Pop, Vol 1 (which also featured Cheap Trick, The Shoes and Dwight Twilley). "Guernica" is characterized by Who-styled slashing guitars, and Picasso-inspired lyrics, while "Got No Mind" is a zesty Ramones styled rocker. A classic!

Flashcubes (45 RPM) 1979

Wait Til Next Week b/w Radio
"Wait Til Next Week" is Eddie Cochran on hold. Rockin' guitar and three-part harmonies. "Radio" is "Pop Manifesto" set to music; "Let me be your radio!" Any musical references to The Beatles and The Who are completely intentional.

Screen Test (45 RPM) 1982

Suellen b/w Girl's Brand New
"Suellen" is a heartbreaking danceable rocker about a childhood sweetheart, while "Girl's Brand New" pounds home it's point that a girl's name change does little to save her reputation. Great Ducky Carlisle production!
