Very fine powerpoppy new wave from this Boston/MA based 5 piece band. This is their lone 12" release. Maybe they had a single out with "Rear view mirror" on it. I like "Atomic love" very much but the other songs are good too. Really a cool record !

Side b: 1.X-Ray spies , 2.Paper lover

Cool new wave-ish (power)poprock with a good female singer. The band were from Austin/TX. I think this is the one and only record they had released. This is really not a bad record.

"This Kids" were from Oceanside/California and i don't know if this was their lone release. We have here 5 okay powerpop tracks and a boring rock'n'roll number. I haven't found infos about this group.
