From Milwaukee USA (of all places), please enjoy The Shivvers, live on WMTV-TV in Madison in 1980, with the utterly-transcendent-should-have-been-a-monster-power-pop-hit-and-an-immortal-radio-classic "Teen Line."
Seriously, these guys and that gal(!) are as good as it gets on every level. But I have two questions.
1. Why didn't they get signed to a major label?
2. HOW THE FUCK IS IT POSSIBLE THAT I NEVER HEARD OF THESE GUYS UNTIL MY CHUM PETER SPENCER SENT ME A LINK TO ANOTHER YOUTUBE YESTERDAY??????
Now excuse me, while I head on over to Amazon and order a copy of...
...which apparently collects everything they ever recorded during their barely four years together.
C'mon, aren't you glad I posted the above rather than the obligatory clip of Springsteen singing about the 4th in Asbury Park?
