# 468 The Times - Love at first sigh

Side a: 1. Tuesday the 12th , 2. So so
Side b: 1. Muzak , 2.New girl
USA 1982
First of two outputs by this Cleveland based band. The songs were written between 1980 and 1982. A very nice mix of new wave (Muzak has a very strong "Gary Numan" influence) and powerpop. Released on Warped records (home of Fragile Eyeon and Asbestos Rockpyle). A very enjoyable Record. I like it!

I really liked this one, So So, kinda sounds like a prototype for the type of pop punk Green day would make their own and Muzak feels as influnced by the cars as gary numan to me.
