yep, the fleshtones...
a band highly under-rated and ignored.....even though they play awesome catchy garage rock.......i guess when everyone was obsessed with new wave, playing garage wasn't the best way to hit the charts....but they've been around since the late 70s and haven't missed a step........
check out their lps hexbreaker, roman gods and live in paris.....not to difficult to find and most of the time under $10......
