Available at last, previously unreleased recordings from one of New York's legendary post-punk rock bands Certain General. Recorded during the band's first year in June, 1981, this collection of songs captures a now gone time and place when young artists flocked to New York and the city was a creative melting pot.
The songs on "Touch" typify the music Certain General were writing and performing in that era... short songs, jerky and funky rhythms, impressionistic lyrics, and exploratory guitar work. It was these elements and a terrific stage show that allowed the band to rise to the top of the NY alternative rock scene in the early 1980's. By the time the prolific band recorded their first proper vinyl release, 1982's "Holiday of Love", they had moved on from this group of songs and subsequently, none of these selections were recorded during the "Love" sessions.
The 7" limited edition 45RMP vinyl version is soon to become a collectors item !
