VS. - Magnetic Heart 7'' 1980

From San Francisco, California this is VS. and their only record on Monkey Records. Line-up here: Heidi Familiar (vox), Olga De Volga (bass + vox), Indian Wells (guitar) and Alex MacNicols (drums). VS. was Olga De Volga's band after she was in the OFFS and before/during The Lewd (known for the classic Kill Yourself single). Fantastic two-sided KBD standouts, Magnetic Heart is a nice mid-tempo number while the flip Leather Complex is significantly better, fuzzy guitars, great female voices, short and crunchy played, hard to beat. VS. are on some compilations, noteworthy the Brainkiller record. Sad info at the end, Olga passed away in March 2008 but her songs remain unforgettable... essential stuff.
