This is a re-post from March the 27th 2006. Added more scans, new rips and I Wanna Be Your Man. This almost tops The Eat.
Ahhh so intense. Listen to the hi-hat sound. You don’t hear that nowadays. And the clicking sound when hitting the ride cymbal. Add to that the (r)obnoxious “I don’t give a fuck” style of singing and we have a winner. And the way they end the song it sounds like they’re just glad it’s over. The b-side “I Wanna Be Your Man” is a great cover with inspirational vocals.

not bad… post me some fingers, and i will be impressed…
I just wanted to say that I love your blog. I’ve been coming here for a while now and I’ve discovered a lot of musicians that I probably would have never heard of if it hadn’t been for you. I can’t repay you enough for that because music is a major part of my life. I hope you don’t mind but I’ve added kbd to my blogroll @
Stop by some time if you get a chance.
Good post here. This was the band from my hometown of Pittsburgh called the Fingers (who put out that impossibly rare “Isolation” EP). They moved to NYC to get big and changed their name. No one except older dudes I am friends with have ever talked about them. One really horrid band called the Cheats covered this track. None of these records turn up in Pittsburgh.
HaHa thats great I was the guitarist in the Cheats that suggested doing Floozie since I worked with the bass player of the Features at the time. Since I quit the band I completly agree with you on the review of the band. But I do have to say that at that time who else in Pittsburgh was doing Features covers and playing “old style” punk rock not influened by other local bands. By the way Pittsburgh doesn’t always suck check out the Radio Beats and The Mud City Manglers
Oh by the way good luck finding that record. I remember Bob (the bass player) selling his second to last copy for a good sum of money to someone in Japan. Definetly a hard record to Find. I do believe the singer/guitarist has a band that still plays in Pittsburgh from time to time. They mostly play blues now so don’t go expecting to hear Floozie.
I’m from Pittsburgh too! And i can say the Radio Beats are awful! I saw them twice and it is just a bunch of nerdy kids trying their best to play punk rock. The singer was a preppie trying to act tough and miserably failed while the bass player was a Blink 182 looking dwarf. I heard some Radio Beats records at my friend’s apartment and it sucked. Nothing to do with punk rock or rock’n’roll, it’s only rock music by the numbers. My friend said they are just a bad Devil Dogs rip off! He doesn’t even like them either! How can you compare Radio Beats with the greatness of the Features?
Wasn’t comparing the Radio Beats to the Features. I meant the Radio Beats and Mud City Manglers were better than the Cheats.
Hey Rob, it’s me, Steve. You’ve disappeared in the city. hey John, thanks for knocking my old band, but you’re a lil’ bitch. Don’t be pissed because people put out records for me.
This is DYNAMITE!!!!
Official reissue from masters coming soon on Last Laugh Records.
This and the “Knots” 7″ are the songs I show people when asked what kind of music I listen to.
Punk in perfection.
Oh, anybody got the lyrics to “floozie of the neighborhood”?
