Sudden Fun – S/T E.P. 7″




The one and only 7″ by Californias Sudden Fun deserves to be posted for one reason and one reason only: the first track. What the fuck happened after that???? Sudden Fun is totally mind blowing but the other tracks makes me believe they had studio musicians and hired a deaf guy to do the rest of the mix. Dada Revolution IS a good song you can almost here it through the bad mix. Ok, the mix gives you a laugh or two. Sounds like the drums are BEHIND you! It’s true! Listen for yourself. How did they do that and WHY(war, famine and corporate crime)????? You can easily tell I was highly disappointed. Someone needs to reissue this as a one track 7″.

Still having vacation so expect some laziness when it comes to regular posting for another week.

    You are right…whoever mixed this was high on LSD. What could have been a great record, otherwise.

    This was a Berkeley band, originally known as the Liars. I went to their shows and pogoed like crazy in ’78, like everybody else. Sudden Fun was their best song certainly, but there were others as well. For some unknown reason they changed their name to Sudden Fun in ’79 when they released this disappointing 7″ and promptly disappeared never to be heard from again.

    Thanks “takeovtheenight” for some input.

    Yeah, stinky82 it’s only the first track that moves me. The rest is just too bad.

    I don’t know why you don’t like the other songs too, Peter. To me, all the tracks are very good (well, the Dada track sucks). And the production is great – totally trippy when you play it with your headphones on.

  8. Jay Thurston says:

    Hey! I just had a great idea. I was thinking, maybe someone could post a new record?? I think that would be fucking fantastic…what do you think???

  9. Erich says:

    I don’t know why, but I’d love it when the next post would be the PANICS mommy 7″.

    Dude, “Writing On the Wall” sent shivers down my spine… I have to use it in a movie or some shit. Oh and does anyone know the lyrics to any of these?

  13. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    What movie? “Squirting on the Wall”?

  14. Ola says:

    Ahh, Teenage Public Enemies is great. Love the little guitar solo in the middle.

  15. behjan says:

    sure their title-song is the keeper but the 2 out of 3 from the rest are nice in their own way
    member John H. lives in Netherlands nowadays, btw

  16. Lundergaard says:

    that’s what you get when the band is allowed to mix those three songs. doh!

  17. Lundergaard says:

    also, Dan Alexander (who recorded the songs but mixed the first one only) is a very talented pro audio guy.

  19. Vince Black says:

    I am the guitarist on these tracks. I know how to find Derek the drummer, but, can’t find Dennis Kernahan the singer or Mark the bassist…

    WHAT A PITY, AFTER THE FIRST SONG, THE OTHER HAVE SHIT PRODUCTION, ITS ALL THERE EXCEPT THE PRODUCTION, SOMEONE WANTED KICKIN UP THE ARSE FOR THE OTHER 3 PRODUCTIONS

  21. I AM THE DRUMMER FROM “THE LIARS”, LATER “SUDDEN FUN”.
    HERE ARE SOME FACTS. THE RECORD WAS PRODUCED AND MIXED BY KENNY LAGUNA FROM (“THE ARCHIES”, BUBBLE GUM FAME) ALONG WITH DAN ALEXANDER AT DANS “TEWKSBURY RECORDERS”.
    THE TITLE SONG WAS A 16 TRACK RECORDING. THE PLAYERS WERE DENNIS KERNOHAN (VOCALS), VINCE BLACK (GUITAR), JON HUNDT (GUITAR SOLO), , MARK HALE? (BASS), AND DEREK RITCHIE (DRUM KIT).
    THE OTHER TRACKS WERE 8 TRACK RECORDINGS. I WILL SEND MORE LATER GOTTA GO

      I was the Liars guitarist, starting with the famous Coal Miner’s benefit at the Mab. There was actually a photo of us in Rolling Stone. Soon after that, we got bankrolled to cut some tunes at Tewksbury Studios in Richmond, Ca. I think we cut 4 or 5 tunes, Sudden Fun being one of them. Mark Hale was the Bass player, Derek was the (awesome) drummer, and Dennis. None of the other ones we recorded appear on this record – don’t know why. I eventually started another group with my girlfriend, and that’s when Vince joined.

      I’m pretty sure I was playing the guitar on Sudden Fun. I know we recorded it and that’s what it sounded like.

      • The Flakes // Drummer says:

        So you wheren’t involved in this release at all? Would love to hear the other tracks you recorded if they’re in the same vein as Sudden Fun on here since it’s the only great song. But what a song it is.

        • Jonathan Lyerly says:

          No, I wasn’t involved with the release, but I just got confirmation from the singer Dennis Kernohan that indeed that WAS our recording from Tewksbury. I also would like to hear the other tracks we cut, but I don’t know who has them at this point.

          There is also a live cut “Anthem” from the Coal Miner’s gig that I am on.
