THE BREAKAWAYS “Walking Out On Love (The Lost Sessions)” (CD)
This band was a sort of side project (of sorts) from Peter Case and Paul Collins (circa LA 1978) that took place after THE NERVES demise... Trying out different possible band mates and songs... Its a good thing(most of the time) to go ahead and hit the record button because you never know what's gonna come of it. yeah, it may have taken 30 years, but here this group of songs exist... And they need/needed to be heard. The quality goes up and down from mid-fi to lo-fi but all of it has a certain ring to it for ear like mine that enjoy a bit of abbrasive-ness in their rock and roll from time to time. This is for fans of THE REAL KIDS or other power-pop/punk back when it all was still considered new-wave. There's some gems on this one like “Working Too Hard” or “Little Suzy” or the highly addictive fist-pumping (but not in the MTV Lame-ass JERSEY SHORE style of fist-pumping) “Radio Station” that I bet TEENGENERATE really would like.
