. . .
In one of those weird twists that happen occasionally, this is the first of a pair of amazing power pop songs — three, I guess, if you count “Ca Plane Por Moi” (which I’m not sure I do) — but this one is as obscure as they possibly get, especially compared to tomorrow’s all-time classic, no matter how many times I played it on KFSR.
Which I guarantee I did, and hell, at some point I even found the album up at Rasputin Records in Berkeley on a road trip, though it was a couple of years later, but honestly, the story of Playmates is pretty fucking obscure, since they only produced a single album, 1986’s Long Sweet Dreams, before whatever happened to them happened.
