The Swingin’ Teens: Gidget’s Bitchin’ Beach Party b/w Life Could Be Wonderful 7″ single, 1988

14 May

The 1988 debut release from the Minneapolis-via-Iowa-based garage-punk band. 1500 copies were pressed. They went on to release many records, and tour for hundreds of thousands of miles.

John Peel once woke me up from a nap with a telephone call from London thanking me for sending a copy to him- he was on an Iowa jag at the time (Full Fathom Five, House of Large Sizes, Stickdog, Iowa Beef Experience, Shy Strangers, etc.).
