Clemenza bait.

My favourite is "Ain't Got No Sense" from the debut. Among the singles, I'll go for the first one because of "Tearin' Me Apart." I interviewed them in '86, a last-ditch incarnation in support of this album:

I came a little late to punk, so I never got to see them play the Horseshoe or Edge in '78.

Love the resignation in the lyrics of Somethin On My Mind. Went with it/Lets Shake.

six years pass...

The documentary's okay. They're old, I'm old, old is not good. And honestly, as much nostalgia as I harbor for the first LP, that's pretty much all there was. (I was reminded, though, of how much I liked "Infected" from the second LP--which shows up in the film when Gord Lewis's minister brother explains how he hears god in there.)

I said above that "Ain't Got No Sense" is my favourite song. Think I'd go for this instead. As with "Infected," they were much better at power pop than anything else.
