With 2013 coming to a close, I figure I should squeeze in one more post before the year is up. This has been a great but busy year which has really slowed down some of my record activities, especially with my blogging. I recently got married to my girlfriend of 9 years and made some pretty great scores with records on the side. This was one of the more surprising records that I came across this past year. It came to me by another collector friend who also hooked me up with my first copy of Crash Street Kidds a few years back. I had never heard or seen this but by first look, I was sold. The Eight Balls were from Youngstown, Ohio and put out this one and only 7" in 1984 to the tune of 500 copies. They still get together a couple of times of year when all members are in town to do reunion shows. I really love the off kilter lyrics and keyboard on the song "Science Gone Too Far". My buddy Clay mention a certain B-52 vibes which I can hear a little."When The Spirit Moves" is more of a straight foreword power pop tune which, is pretty damn good. I could hear the Registrators or a number of other Japanese garage punk bands from the 90's covering it. Here's to the end of 2013! May 2014 be filled with endless record scores and rivers of coffee.
