Continuing my dig through the top-shelf box of 45's. Tonight it's Suburban Lawns and a staple of KROQ and several other "like-minded" radio stations at the time. Janitor was, if I remember, played to death.
And why not? The inimitable voice of Su Tissue was a little like Yoko Ono on glue and it was so weird it was actually rather hypnotic.
Sadly, the band from CalArts didn't last very long. Almost long enough to get signed to a big label (well . . .I guess you could say IRS was a big label at the time), do an album and ep and call it a day by 1982.
Still, there was a time in 1980 where you couldn't go for more than 15 minutes without hearing it someplace.
