From a reunion show in 2007, please enjoy pop punksters Cheap Perfume, at some wonderful low dive in New York City, doing to "Boys" what neither The Shirelles or even The Beatles ever quite got around to doing.
The short version: These dames originally got together in 1979 and quickly became a fixture on the NYC rock scene centered around C.B.G.B.'s and Max's Kansas City, although somehow I completely managed to miss them back in the day. Which of course is actually a good thing, because I have absolutely no doubt whatsoever...
...that I would have made a massive ass of myself over every one of them had I chanced across them in a club. If you know what I mean.
In any case, they broke up a few years later, but finally got back together for the reunion show seen above. They've been at it off and on since, and now they've just released their first recordings ever -- an E.P. on Turn-Up Records (home to power pop god Richard X. Heyman) featuring a blistering studio version of "Boys" and three new originals mixed by the incomparable Ed Stasium, who's made superior guitar-rock records with the likes of The Stones, the Ramones and Living Color.
You can -- and very definitely should -- order the disc over at CD Baby here.
