TRAGICS, THE: Mommi I’m a Misfit: 7”

How could you not like this: “Recorded live in a near comatose state, MCE Recording Studios, Schenectady, NY, Sept 81.” Full of that mid-‘70s punk feel when a female singer brought the heartfelt wail of 1950s girl groups to the updated punk sound, à la X-Ray Spex. They were called the Misfits then changed to the Tragics for your obvious punk world reasons. Fun reissue.
