This is a repost from April the 1th 2006. Added more scans, re-recorded and uploaded all the tracks.

Thanks to Jimmi Quidd(vocals) the Bad Brains was able to record “Pay To Cum” during their time in NY in 1979. Quidd took money out of his own pocket to finance the recording that wasn’t released until 1980. Quidd also produced “Nine Toes Later” by The Undead(ex Misfit member). The title track is a great up beat punk/powerpop thrasher. Jimi died in 1990. Thank you Jimi for this and the Bad Brains.

  1. In reply to your comment on our page on the “Le Ritz” single, actually it didn’t come from your blog. It came from our own personal collection of CD’s. We always give credit where credit is due, but in this case, it does not belong to you.

    Comment on your blog? Hmm, can you check the IP?

    The Bad Brains 7″ and the Undead first 7″ are truly classics. This is not too bad. I had no idea that Jimmi had died. What a shame, but what a legacy to leave behind. RIP

    this is so awesome. My father is the bassist and he plays his songs and records all the time. i looked up his band on Google once, and this site came up. this band is truly amazing.

  10. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Say hello to your dad and let him know what a great record he did!

  11. Anastasia says:

    Also, it was my dad’s equipment and my dad’s money that went into the Bad Brains’ production. So a change in credit, alongside of Jimmi would be appreciated. =)

  12. Sophia says:

    Leigh is my dad too and he recorded new songs with rick who wrote alot of the songs

    I know the Model from the cover album….She is my good friend….Still SEXY!! You go girl Valerie P!

  14. Hank Ray says:

    Jimmi produced our first album back in Berlin in 1985. I learned a lot from him and more than that he was a great guy to hang out with.

      Dear Hank thanks so much for the comment on my brother.. He was always larger than life!!! I miss him every day..

  15. Smokey says:

    I love these guys. I can’t stop listening to Return of the Dots…one of my all time favorite records.

  16. Adam says:

    Jimmi produced the single for my high school band the Superior Beings (terrible name, I know). Our cover art was by John Bouzakis, too. See: Jimmi was a great guy and a talented performer/producer. He took what my band mates and I were doing seriously, which made me feel, at the age of 18, very cool indeed.

    • The Flakes // Drummer says:

  17. Smokey says:

    Anyone know where I can find a copy of the records…return of the dots?

    My Dots days were about (looking back) the best &^%$# rocking times I had as a young
    musician!!…Jimmi/Rick and the crew were a big part of my coming of age as a player…And of course playing with your pals was the coolist !!! Thanx guys…

    • Constantine (Gus) Hatzidimitriou says:

      Dear Billy, I remember you… Yes those were some of the best days of our lives..
      Jmmi’s brother– Gus

  19. Martin says:

    The drumrollintro to I don’t wanna dance with you kicks major ass, and when the song starts I always jump high (mentally) of pure excitment. A true classic!

  20. nick says:

    Great band,should have been huge and always reminded me of Mumps and the good cheer of Lance Loud.The retrospective album,issued by Rebel Records(german label),is too good to be believed-a lost quirky pop artifact of frenetic charm!!

  21. Gus Hatzidimitriou says:

    Jimmi was and IS my brother– Thank you everyone for remembering and appreciating the energy and joy of his life and music.. The songs get more awesome every time I hear them!!! He once told me that they would live forever– man was he right!!!! Believe it or not he is still with me every single day in my heart and soul.

    Thanks for the music and the best of times Dots.. God bless you all….

    Gus Hatzidimitriou— in my own way– still crazy after all these years
