ERVIN BERLIN: “Junior’s Got Brain Damage” b/w “Last Time”: 7” single

Mar 10, 2023

A quick dose of punk rock from Orlando, Fla. circa 1980, and released in minuscule quantities that fetch healthy prices on the collectors market. But you can secure this repress for a much saner price right now. Two songs of late-’70s punk with a dark and seedy sound. “Junior’s Got Brain Damage” is a tale of a troubled youth abusing their body with chemicals to the point of terminal brain damage. The flip side, “Last Time” keeps the energy up, and the musicianship really comes to the fore on this track. That guitar is a thing of beauty. Both these songs are over and done long before they wear out their welcome. –Matt Average (Total Punk Archives, [email protected],
