It’s usually Peter’s job to post US records, but as these New Yorkians sounded like they were from York I got to post it. I have to say I prefer the b-side with it’s amazingly crappy bass sound, but the a-side is a killer as well. And I’m actually still surprised that this is not a UK band. Here’s a nice little write up with some videos and info, which is nice as there’s no info on the sleeve what so ever. Now enjoy what the boss of this site calls the best post punk record ever made!

Ronnie And The Rayguns – Nancy’s China 7″

Apparently Nancy Reagan were “…criticized early in his first term largely due to her decision to replace the White House china, despite its being paid for by private donations.”. So why not write a song about it? And what a song. Paul Taylor’s voice is superb and high in the mix. And listen to the drum sound. Especially the cymbals. Love it. The b-side is unfortunately forgettable and not up to the high standard of Nancy’s. Oh well.

Finally a cover band posted here! And finally a cover band that makes both the Stranglers’ and the Who’s classic songs sound fey! And finally a cover band made up by service men from the Royal Air Force!

Dizzy’s got the complete story of these tough looking guys, and I love him for it! And I love this record as it’s even more whimpy than I am!

Many times I may’ve talked about that this record might be the best punk record ever. I’ve lied all those times. Here’s the best punk record. Ever. They can hardly play but knows exactly what punk is all about in the end: attitude and emotions. What the hell were they thinking? That’s right they didn’t think at all. Great! They just did it cause it felt right. The effect on the epic guitar solos…genius. Be in sync? Forget it. P.U.N.K.-R.O.C.K!

You might hear that this record has a lot of crackles and pops. What do I have to say about that? Only FASCIST FUCKERZ DIG MINT RECORDS!
