Crude, weird, wild and unissued until the good people at Norton Records slapped it on wax, the entire record is a raw garage blast in your face from these boys out of Australia. The title track is my pick, although almost any song would do. According to the liner notes, the photo on the cover is the only photo of the band known to exist and they only played about 15 gigs in their entire career together. This is the obscure of the obscure and I love it!
This 1984 record was heavily influenced by 60's garage punk, in case you couldn't tell. After making this record, the band split into two factions and there was a minor name controversy which the Paula Pierce-led Pandoras eventually won. They enjoyed moderate success, switched it up to a more hard rock sound and went through some lineup changes over the years. Paula Pierce tragically died in 1990 of an aneurysm. The Pandoras continue to play shows these days, with members that were in the band in the 80's.
Written by Lori Burton and Pam Sawyer, the pair couldn't find a band to perform this song, part homage part parody of the tragic boy songs performed by girl groups of the era, so they made the group up. Burton supplied the vocals and the girls on the cover? They were asked to pose as "The Whyte Boots" for the single. Later on, when Burton did a full record and included this song, their ruse was exposed. One of the greatest tragic girl group cult classics, this song ends in a death at the hands of the narrator (who really need some new friends)! I hope you enjoy one of the weirdest songs I have ever heard.
