Here’s another fine example that it’s worth to roll up your sleeves and start digging for new bands. Just Wanna Go Out will easily get a place on future punk rock compilations of obscure and lost 7inches from the year 2005.
Why are The Busy Signals so fucking great then? Well an excerpt from an interview in Chicago Reader may reveal a little bit of it:” The Busy Signals have plenty of ambitions, but making it in the music biz isn’t one of them. The local five-piece takes after record-geek favorites like the Kids, Protex, and the Boys — late-70s and early-80s also-rans who played electrifying melodic punk and power pop but barely got within spitting distance of commercial success. “We’re ripping off bands that at their most popular were only marginally popular,” says drummer Frankie Jensen. “Groups that put out a couple great singles, maybe did one album that no one can find anymore, and that was it. It sounds fucking ridiculous, but that’s our goal ultimately.“.
