PLAN 9 (5 YEARS AHEAD OF MY TIME)

I think this was a cool record. First. cause you have to play both sides to hear the full song. second, cause it's recorded live and third, I like the cover. It has a transparent piece of plastic with checkers that go over the single. My camera couldn't capture it right so I had to take it off .So it was 1979 and a bunch of psyched-up, garage lovin, hi-heel and pink pant clad groovers embarked on an epic journey to share their psychosis with the world. John DeVault, Holly Scanlon, Mike Meehan, John Florence, Debora DeMarco and Eric Stumpo rocked out an ever expanding repertoire of garage classics from the 1960's (if you can remember it you weren't there...). The fledgling band attracted the attention of Tom Champlin, Eric Vandelin, Evan Williams and Mike Ripa - and created the wall of guitar sound which became indicative of Plan 9.1981 saw the release of the first single ("Can't Stand This Love, Goodbye") quickly followed by the "Frustration" EP, lots of touring, a meeting with the (at the time) relatively unknown R K Sloane and the recording of a full length album, "Dealing with the Dead" (which was released in 1983 sporting full color florescent artwork and cool comic insert by RK Sloane). Plan 9 were nominated in 1983 for a CMJ Future Music Award, along with the Lyres."Five Years Ahead Of My Time" was released as a double A-side, Apparently these guys are still out in some form.
