Comateens – Cool Chick // Dangerzone (Teenmaster Records) 1979. The first Comateens 7inch is sort of an obscurity even amongst the kbd/h2d crowd. I do not know why. Its a great piece of late 1970′s new wave. The Comateens went on to be one of those really annoying eighties bands. But this EP is different.
I have played Cool Chick for many friends over the years and I find that it is either something you will LOVE or HATE. I think that this is based to a degree on how comfortable you are with the er…flamboyance of the lead singer on “Cool Chick”. Personally I think it is an awesome song.
“Dangerzone” on the B Side is just a really good guitar based New Wave tune. Good stuff.
