(Martha & The Muffins - Name was temporary but it stuck)


In the off chance you're not feeling highbrow tonight (as in The Newstalgia Mid-Week Concert), but rather fancy a dose of New Wave from 1980, the box of 45's keeps turning up stuff. Tonight it's Canadian Art Rock/New Wave Martha & the Muffins whose only hit was Insect Love from 1978. This track, Saigon was off their first album and was issued as a single, but it went nowhere more or less solidifying their status as a nice band but not cutting edge.

Truths to tell, they actually were a pretty good band, but at the time there were so many bands flocking to the New Wave genre that many got lost in the shuffle, Martha & The Muffins were one of them.

Although the band have gone through numerous personnel changes over the years, there is the persistent rumor they're still together. How current that information is you can only guess.

But in the meantime, here's another dose of early 1980's.
