The Panics – S/T 7″




I´m totally in love with this record. Cause it combines the best of two worlds: powerpop and sloppy punk rock. The flips cover of Bacharachs My Little Red Book. Holy shit! A cover performed as if no other then Elvis Costello and The Attractions had possessed their bodies. But first you have to go through a fantastic sneering punk tune with a guitar solo that just points a finger at you and scream FUCK YOU. The first of three seven inches from Floridas The Panics. Spin it now baby!

    I didn’t enjoy this very much. I think Love (the band) did the best version of “Little Red Book”…just my stupid opinion. Thank you though, for letting me hear it.

  2. Nice piece of small art. Gotta luv the Panics.

    Have to agree with Jay, but the A side is ok.

    Love’s version is really great, but this one is good too, quite diferent from Love’s.

    WoW ! “Kill it” was very interesting. I liked that. I’ve heard about a dozen versions of “Little Red Book” and this is definitely the best one I’ve ever heard. Thanks for putting those up. Mr.G.

    Unbeleiveable. I can’t believe our stuff is still floating out there in cyberspace. Actually I hated these singles. The mix was sucky and the producer would not work with me on my guitar sound. I wanted more volume and more distortion.
    The album wasn’t much better. Hating on myself. lol

    Great double-sider!! Jason, don’t be so hard on yourself. Great stuff! Used to see you guys around Edison. Still got the single!
