The Wrecks: Teenage Jive demo tape (1982)

The Wrecks were a trailblazing all female band from Reno in the early eighties. This tape is the complete package, complete with snotty vocals, a garagey sound (which has to be done right, otherwise it'll suck, but The Wrecks pull it off with reckless abandon) and provocative lyrics. Yep, this is the shit and if there was any justice in the world, they'd be better known than the Go-Go's.

Boy that's a trip down memory lane. Bessie and Jone made a fanzine back then, (name eludes me) Jone ended up playing with Sister Double Happiness.

Thanks for the info!

Too funny to find this. How'd you get this tape? Actually Lynn played in Sister Double Happiness and Jone and Lynn are still in Imperial Teen.

I got a copy off of Soulseek a few years ago.
