From I have no idea when, please enjoy The Blade -- whoever they are -- and their terrific and I guess vaguely punkish(?) single "We Won't Sleep Tonight."
Seriously -- I have no idea who these guys are/were or when specifically this record was made. My good friend David Klein, who does business over at Merry Swankster, turned me on to it a few months ago, and he doesn't know its provenance either, except that he got it through his illegal file-sharing network and "it was in a folder that said something like 'check this out, obscure late '60s type band...'"
From the drum sound, of course, we both decided it has to date from no earlier than the mid-80s, but beyond that -- no man can say, and Google has been absolutely no help.
Obviously, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded to any reader who has any info that can help us track these guys down.
