Sue Saad & The Next

Man, talk about a forgotten, underappreciated, unknown, drop-dead period piece from those wacky new-wave 1980's, and you just gotta be talkin bout the only album from the legendary Sue Saad and the Next......a fine album that millions upon millions of us have never even heard of, let alone heard and enjoyed.

The band in it's brief lifetime were singer Sue Saad, guitarists Tony Riparatti and Billy Anstart, bassist Bobby Manzer, and drummer James Lance. They hailed from Los Angelse and thier single disc stands up well beside the contemporary work of Blondie and the Pretenders.  The album is the absolute bomb, deliciously dated but still nothing but fun to listen too: "Gimme Love/Gimme Pain"....."I I Me Me"....."Your Lips-Hands-Kiss-Love", "Prisoner".....every track is a small chunk of 1980 new-wave gold......you cannot o wrong with this four-star disc.

Didn't have a whole lotta time today to get something together (my son's high school basketball oenr tonight YAAAAAAAAEEEEEEEHHHHHH!) so we'll go, today, with this short (but very sweet) gem from the 1980's......working on a HUGE Yo La Tengo post for later this week sometime, just to whet the whistles of the many Yo La Tengo fans I'm sure are out there!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, as I said, after my "stroke-thing", I am thankful to be above ground. Peace to all!
