First Man Over

Yeah, once in  while I like to get really cute and slip in these albums that NO ONE has ever heard of, don't worry, I wouldn't do so if I didn't think it would be worth your while......today, I have selected a fine overlooked LP from 1986, "First Man Over", by the band of the same name......trying to locate information on them is nearly impossible, I have to say, though, that I have had this disc for sometime, and enjoy it quite a bit, regardless of it's sort of "mystery" origins.

While no classic by any means, this is a very, very good album of fine power-pop/ alt punk, hey, it was the mid-80's, what were we to do.....the soft-edged, pop/punk blend which reminds one of perhaps Blink 128 or a much lesser Green Day, this one is a good one that got lost in the cracks of history.......

I recommend you (you statesiders, anyway), give this one a listen, it's really pretty good and solid, all thte way through.....there are some quite good tracks here, I like "Diamond Mind", but really no complaints, "Umbrella Man",  "Fire Engine", "It's Happening", and pletny more are gently rocking pieces that genuinelly recall 1986, and the obscure sounds of the same. Take a chance on this album, Scott brings VARIETY, ya know, so lemme know whatcha be thinkin bout THIS........myeslf I consider it a TOTALLY lost period piece!
