"Sea Cruise" b/w "Greasy Spine"
Homestead 7" 45 RPM, 1985
"Never trust a man with a skinny tieHere's your Friday cut, a slightly noisy rip of the B-side from the Volcano Suns between albums 1 and 2 single. Post Mission of Burma, Peter Prescott spent a few records not being very serious (while his former bandmates went off and did the opposite). The a-side, "Sea Cruise" is much more Burma like, complex and angular but not afraid to say "whoa", that's a killer riff, partner.
Never trust a girl with a greasy spine
when she says she wants to be your valentine"
"Greasy Spine", well, I'm not sure what they were smoking but they must have been listening to Killdozer at the time. Michael Cudahy and Liz Cox (2/3's of the great band Christmas), always good for some laughs, are credited with guitar and backup vocals and Lou Giordano produced.
Best played very loud. Trust me.
