THE CONTINENTALS - Fizz Bop 7'' 1979

A little powerpoppunk which was released by CBS and the Continentals bring us two great tunes that shows the majors had taste but lost it soon. The Continentals are Bill Holliday, Tom Doherty & Alan Harris. The single was produced by Tommy Erdelyi of the Ramones. The group came from London and were managed by Doug Smith, then manager of Motorhead. They were included as part of the unique but short lived NuDisk releases in the USA - 10" EP's . Elvis Costello was also one of the artists released in this format in the USA. Music was largely New Wave high energy although other tracks reflected a wider and different style.
