THE NAMES - Too Cool To Dance EP 1980

Awesome powerpop 7inch by this three piece combo from Herne Bay in Kent, members: John (guitar + vox), Steve (bass + vox) and Russell (drums). They released this cool three song killer EP only in Germany on GeeBeeDee records. No other vinyl is known to exist except two tracks on the First Offenders compilation on Criminal Records. Why is this so?, I don't know because this little piece of vinyl is a damn catchy one, brisk mid-tempo powerpop mixed with a decent pinch of punk and the guitars cut out everything. I guess the labels have slept here extremely to take this band under contract and give them more options - Idiots!!! The power they had, and even after more than 30 years, the songs sound fresh and put some other band easy in the pocket. Pflichtdownload!
