L’AMOUR: Look to the Artist 1978-1981: LP

Jan 30, 2019

A collection of recordings from a long-gone band that apparently was one of the linchpins of the early Richmond, Va. punk scene which included members of Beex and The Prevaricators. Included are the tracks from their sole 7”, some demos, and tracks from a board tape, all of which sound friggin’ great considering we’re talking about tapes from forty-odd years ago. Being the L.A.-centric dweeb I am, they remind me of a cross between the Zeros and Simpletones—minimalist rock with a bit of punk bite. Limited to five hundred with liner notes, assorted picks, and the like. –Jimmy Alvarado (Beach Impediment)
