These guys are a record store dude’s wet dream: exploited by Kim Fowley in the ‘70s, feathered hair, paved the way for L.A. punk, broke up and watched their peers get famous, a couple of their songs wound up as highlights on obscure power pop comps, and one of their ex-members went on to make the theme song to Friends. This super-catchy twenty-two song odds and ends comp features everything but this L.A. power pop band’s 1976 LP, and when “Hillary” came on, I said, “Holy fuck, this is good” out loud to my empty dining room. –Chris Terry (Burger)
