The original band of NYC punk rock legends were all about simple, stripped down rock and roll, so it was surprising when they worked with Phil Spector on the 1980 album from which this song comes. On it, they shout out iconic rock DJ’s and bands like Murray the K and T. Rex.

Like the original band, the Shadow artist hails from Queens. This former Live Lunch and First Thursday performer has been releasing great solo records since the early 2000’s, and was playing in bands like D Generation long before that.
