This Canadian teenage group from small-town Ontario had their own mature sound predating punk and surpassingall older groups in the region. Recorded for a soundtrack at the Montreal National Film Board in 1976 and released
in 1977, “Time” is a dynamic heavy rocker, whereas “Leaving This Crazy City” is a proto-punk surprise! "Absolutely killer reissue...phased-out spacetime bliss, with teenaged hot licks splayed all over while the band steers the vessel
with some surprisingly talented drumming and steady rhythms...a killer riff-driven hard rocker that chugs with a certain punk-like menace...it’s so rare these days to find unheard-of gems like this, and the quality of both tracks is
pretty impressive." - RK / Terminal Boredom, June 2012. Originally issued as a private press, sleeveless gold labeled 45 in a very small edition, now reissued with repro labels, deluxe pocket sleeve, and 16 page booklet with detailed history& tons of photos. For fans of the many other little known proto-punk hard rockers of the mid-70s.
