Culture Shock – Forever + Ever 7″

Insanely catchy and cute poppy punk rock from Canada released as late as 1983, even if it was recorded a year before it ended up on vinyl. I love, love, love, love, love, love, love this 3 chords slab of a love song, and the b-side is just as good!

I guess they were a bit inspired by the early Buzzcocks, and they managed to crank out one of the best guitar solos ever on Forever and ever. I could listen to it forever and ever to be honest!

There are two different sleeve versions for this 7″, this screen printed silver version, and a brown version, that I think might be done on construction paper. All in all 300 copies pressed, and I think both versions were done at the same time.

Anyone who’ve heard their compilation CD from 1977 records?

    1977 records had put up a sample of one of the tracks on that compilation cd, and it was better than the b-side to this 7″. but yeah that a-side is a classic, immediately bought the 7″ when it got re-issued.

    New to me and very good, even if a bit too late for trend. Both songs are catchy and delivered with the proper passion. Thanks!
