Album: Let’s Go!
The Reducers second album, 1984’s Let’s Go!, came only a few months after their self-titled debut, and it was pretty much the same formula: short, catchy songs that had a bit too much classic rock in their DNA to be punk, but too influenced by punk to be played anywhere but on college radio.
And play it we did. While I think I ended up preferring the debut, Let’s Go! got a bunch of airplay on KFSR, especially the hilarious rollicking title track — powered by the unforgiving drums of Tom Trombley — which is basically a glorified list of all of the places they wanted to go, as sung by guitarist Peter Detmold.
