# 460 - The Cheesedogs - Rita Jenrette

Side c: 1.Rita Jenrette , 2.No fair
Side d: 1.Radio , 2.Something tells me no
USA 1981
Entertaining 4 track E.P. by this Garwood/NJ based band. Music ranges from Powerpop to weird New Wave to radio friendly college pop. This might be their sole release and it's a fine one.


# 459 Static -s/t

Side a: Voice on the line
Side b: Stealin'
UK 1982
Nice lone release by this band. Side a is a very nice powerpop tune with some heavy metal solo guitars. Side b is more NWOBHM/Hardrock but also not bad. Cover is a stamped innersleeve without informations, just the bandname on it. Cool!
