MYDOLLS: “Nova Grows Up”/”The Rapist”/”In Technicolor”: 7”

This one came out of nowhere and threw me for a loop. I wasn’t expecting to hear something that floored me like this record. I hear early B-52’s and Pylon, which were roaming the earth around this same time. But they aren’t copping anyone’s licks in these songs—wild, experimental, and totally thrilling. Any band that opened for Minor Threat and Siouxsie And The Banshees back in the day deserves your attention. Dig it. –Sean Koepenick (Artcore, artcorefanzine.co.uk)
