THE BUSINESS END OF THE STICK

I know it's been all 5-superlatives-for-a-dollar kind of golly-gee postings, but I dunno whether it's me or maybe I have just managed to dig a tunnel around the crapzone of hippie nodoffs that coats the top few layers of the internets/promo pile?

The Units! "High Pressure Days"--when the kick comes in at :35, it is the best song I have never danced to. 1979 pre-Reagan anxiety and the synth player has the hooks and solos, total guitar denial, which was really the right choice come the twilight 70's. The vinyl reissue is in stores this week maybe?
