The first US single by Wang Chung, before they changed their name to a better spelling.

“Disappointed” is a very appropriate word for this. I picked up an import 12” remix of PIL’s “Disappointed” yesterday and when I pulled it out to play today, I discovered it was a mispress with two labels—one of which is buried into the grooves. Huge bummer.

Likely the second-closest Split Enz ever got to a US hit. Ambitious and aggravating at the same time, it mixes New Wave, old-fashion music hall and prog together for a song that works as individual sections but not as a whole.

Another one of those Hallmark cards with a 45 in it. With that giant “Oh Yeah” on it, you’d figure it was Yello’s “Oh Yeah,” as heard in every 80s teen movie, but it’s The Cars instead—which is even better because that means it’s referencing Ric Ocasek’s hiccupy vocal mannerisms.

Since I’m on a McCartney kick due to his great new album, here’s some 45s on white vinyl that were released for his early 90s album, Off The Ground.

Easily one of his most accessible records. Some great musicians play on this one. I wouldn’t say it’s commercial as such, but it’s probably as close as he got!

Today’s find: A US 12” remix of Billy Idol’s “White Wedding”—on white vinyl. Sweet.

Peter Wolf was the leader of The J. Giles Band, despite the band’s name. This was one of his better-faring solo singles after he left the band in the 80s. Great chorus and the rest is lame by-the-numbers mid-80s white R&B, complete with SNL-style sax solo.

The Stray Cats were from a town not far from where I live now, but they had to move to the UK to get discovered. This is one of their lesser UK singles, but the B-side is a very credible cover of “Looking Out My Backdoor” by Creedence Clearwater Revival.
