JEFFIE GENETIC AND HIS CLONES: Need a Wave: CD

Jeff from the New Town Animals playing all the instruments, making all the moves, having all the fun. A good album all the way through, straight-shootin’ early ‘80s black-and-white new wavey rock. But the lyrics are fun, as the title track questions the difference between the army and kids looking for today’s new wave to follow, “Scooter Queen” about a guy who’s girlfriend scooted into a bus and now he watches Quadrophenia all day, and the obligatory lobotomy song.
