Next Exit

Why not, this is an oddball classic ca. 1983........I bet 99% of ya have never heard this one, but it
merits a listen. This is the sole release from Next Exit, a Seattle new wave band long before there was a Seattle "scene".......Next Exit were Jan Gregor, Mark Fenton, Don Lynd, Greg Morlan, and Jeff Morlan........

The opening "Regular Job" sets the tempo for strangeness, and there is no letup. Lyrics of depression and misery and all that great stuff are a plenty, perhaps 10 years before they became so plentiful in thet Pacific Northwest.......strange, disconnected vocals that are sort of buried in the mix, multiple strange sound effects, and some exceptional (and ALSO strange) guitar make this the sort of hidden, forgotten gem that makes life worth living sometimes......if you dare to check this one out, please share an opinion as I have never met another human being who has ever heard it, unless through myself! Evidently "Static Cling" was something of a regional hit and was featured on the ultra-obscure Seattle Syndrome II compilation (anybody got one?)

01 Regular Job/02 One of the Buzzboys/03 Static Cling/04 Concrete River/05 Run/06 Caution Contents Under Pressure/07 I'm Not Viscious/08 Stress/09 Sleeping Without You/10 Rational Town/11 Mercy of the Moment/12 Somewhile Exile

Take a chance on this one, you will agree it's a shame that for whatever reason they never got to make album #2.......apparently they changed their name to Variant Cause after the release of this album, for reasons not made clear.
