Modernettes - Barbra

You can thank Kevin Patrick McGovern of The Prostitutes for today's blog entry as he drew my attention to this classic slice of 80's Canadian pop punk from Vancouver's Modernettes. Releasing their first ep, titled Teen City, in 1980 they went down a storm with the youth of the day, it's the sort of disc i can imagine a young Green Day pogoing around their bedrooms to. Unfortunately they didn't hang around very long, though there was another ep, 1981's View From The Bottom and an album, Gone....But Not Forgiven before frontman John "Buck Cherry" Armstrong moved on to front Los Popularos. From the Teen City ep this is the wonderfully upbeat (though tragically misspelt) Barbra.......
