Anyway, this was sent to me by Otto. I was only familiar with the Bloodstains cut Death Chord, but the standout here is the 6+ minute A Side, How Many Times. This is one seriously acid-damaged piece of swamp-punk. Kinda like No Trend meets The Scientists or something. Jesus, I get a contact high just hearing it. It was released in 1981 and contains fittingly enough, a completely damaged Juice Newton cover as well on the B Side.
The Five ended up moving to Boston where they languished in obscurity for a number of years. They released a full length LP which is still available here. It is good but singer Reid Paley’s vocals start to grate after a while.
