The original band were a legendary New York City quartet who came to prominence in the mid-70’s, performing many times at CBGB, and helping to define, perhaps more so than anyone else, what it meant to be a punk rock band.
This song – about being bored out of your mind – remains one of their most famous recordings.
If you speak French, you might refer to this Shadow band as a “new wave” group. They’re well known for their bossa nova reinterpretations of popular songs.
