Artist: The Lids
Title: Too Late
Label: Die Slaughterhaus
Here's an older Atlanta release coming at you thanks to a little Ebay persistence.
The Lids' debut and the second Die Slaughterhaus release is what you would expect from Bobby Ubangi: simple, short masterpieces of understatement with repetitive yet effective and catchy lyrics.
The a-side features Bobby singing and playing guitar with a trio of girl backup singers and the incomparable Dave Rahn on drums. Both songs, "Fool For You" and "Too Late," are comparable to the catchy tunes on The Lids' well-received LP.
The lengthier b-side, "Something To Do," is like The Ramones meets your favorite girl group (like, say, Dolly Mixture).
If you can find this one for cheap (I paid $7 and some change plus shipping), check out The Lids' debut and the first of many quality releases recorded by Rahn.
(P.S. does anyone who has been around for a while know who is the third girl on the cover? I recognize Alix and Valery.)
