Notes by the guest editor Jeremy for Disk 1 (my notes follow):
The Skoings—whose only single was printed in Westwood and featured another serial killer tale, “Doctors Wives”—the Signals, the Tweezers, and Tidal Waves all had a jerky pop sound but none of them managed more than a handful of releases. In more of a straight-ahead power-pop vein were 20/20 and The Last, both prolific and both overlooked.
