PLASTIC IDOLS: Einstein Experience: 7”

In contrast to their 1979 single, which felt like slightly overproduced Killed By Death material, the A side of their 1980 follow-up sounds like an underproduced attempt at a legit college radio new wave hit (excluding the ever-popular noise generator, which is still wild as hell). The B side contains one fast punk number and one pointless track of artsy noodling. Ya can’t say they didn’t cover all their bases with this one. BEST SONG & TITLE: “Uncircumcised Twin.” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: Originally released on Vision Records. Wait, I said that already. ­–Rev. Nørb (Rerun, rerunrecordsstl.com)
