The Plimsouls - The Plimsouls ...Plus (1992)

1992 | Pop Rock | Mp3 320 kbps | 134 Mb

The Plimsouls were in the right place and time--Los Angeles just after the Knack took skinny-tie power pop national--to score a major record deal almost upon forming. With the instant credibility conferred by leader Peter Case's membership in the legendary punk-pop Nerves, whose "Hanging on the Telephone" Blondie had taken to the charts, the Plimsouls were expected to become a very big deal. Sadly, the anti-Knack backlash took down the entire L.A. power pop scene almost overnight, and their self-titled debut disappeared immediately. The excellent Rhino reissue THE PLIMSOULS...PLUS collects that album, the rare ZERO HOUR EP, a handful of b-sides including an early version of EVERYWHERE AT ONCE's stellar "How Long Will It Take?" and an excellent previously unreleased tune called "Memory." Case's rough-edged songs and the band's noisy performances are almost unbearably exciting, and this is a true power pop classic.
