CASANOVAS IN HEAT: “Belvidere” b/w “Destiny St.”: 7”

The cover of this single is four dudes in leather jackets and denim vests playing pinball. Bad-ass, right? You would think so. However, the photo is a bit posed. It’s almost—oh jeez—boy-band-esque. Yikes! The music is very 1980s. Not good underground ‘80s / John Hughes-movie-soundtrack-’80s. I could hear the b-side, “Destiny St.,” playing as the lead character—Judd Nelson or Matthew Broderick perhaps—the misunderstood rebel, walks off into the distance and credits roll. You might like that. It’s not for me.
