The Visitors – S/T 7″

visitors_a.jpg visitors_b.jpg

This is a repost from April the 21th 2006. Added more scans, Rocket Me Home and a new rip of Comin’ From Behind in 192kbps.

It’s fun to post unknown bands who’ve put out one great 7inch and then dissapeared into the unknown. But it’s a bummer when you want to find some sort of info to get the information part here a bit beefy. So any old american dude with plenty of Budweisers under his belt is welcome to add his/hers bits and pieces about The Visitors. I know they where from New York. This puppy was never released with sleeve.

Country: USA

  2. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Thank you Dylan! Comin.. is an awesome track that gets a lots of rotation here right now. Too bad the a-side sucks so hard.

  3. brian says:

    This is simply awful. There are literally 1000 obscure 45s from the US better than this.

  4. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    ha ha this one rules Brian!

    Ha ha ha :D! Let it all out! I love those strong reactions. The vocals rule in my world. Totaly punk and annoying.

    .i agree that even a negative reaction is a good reaction. if you find you resent something obnoxious, it’s at least getting it’s job done. and yet, hypocritically, i despise most if not all modern popular music standards without excuse or compromise. i like the b side’s vocals as well here. to me, weak clapping percussives always helps too. i think it’s the attempt i adore.

    comin from behind is awesome! thanks for the repost.

    The Visitors were from Brooklyn–Bay Ridge, I think. When I was growing up, their logo was stenciled on the base of a streetlight on my corner. Never knew who they were until about a year ago!

    the anoying vocals is what will make you remember this one. I like it.

  11. Oofus Goofus says:

    Annoying vocals? Fuck shit, duder! Betcha all think that BLANK GENERATION by RICHARD HELL is a classic, don’t y’use?

    Same goddamn thing here, buttplug. I love.

    The Visitors were indeed from NYC. My band, The Metros, played on the same bill with them a few times at Club 57 and probably Max’s Kansas City. I still have some of the flyers including a New Years Eve Show (1978-79) at Club 57.

    We always enjoyed playing with The Visitors. They were cool guys and had a song entitled “Subway Rider.” We loved the song so much that The Metros rehearsals would often end with us doing a rendition of it–just for kicks. I believe to song was just two chords and made for an easy jam when we could do some amazing and/or terrible things to it—the true sign of a great song.
