VKTMs - Midget

Some people probably think this blog is just thrown together with no thought as to what's going to be posted next and of course it pretty much is but today's song is connected to yesterday's in as much as that one was about someone in love with a tall girl whilst this one is about someone in love with a 3ft 3" guy. Vktms, from San Francisco, were together between 1978-1982 (and reformed in 1994). Blessed with powerful female vocalist Nyna Crawford they released a couple of eps and a single but didn't really get the recognition afforded to some of their contemporaries such as The Avengers but they were prolific on the live scene sharing a stage with a who's who of the punk scene (Dead Kennedys, DOA, Stranglers, Ramones, Johnny Thunders etc etc etc). Their s/t album came out in 1997. Tragically Nyna "Napalm" passed away from cancer in 2000. From their debut ep, this is Midget......
