The Skunks (Can't Get Loose Single)

a repost by request, originally posted 11-26-08, new rips and scans, enjoy!  
   The Skunks were an Austin, Texas three piece that formed in 1977. They are generally recognized as one of Austin's first punk bands. This was their first single, they released it on their own, (I'm guessing?) Skunks Records. The record cost them $10.00 to record. Before disbanding in 1983, they released: 2 full lengths, a 2, 7" record set Ep, another single and they had a couple tracks on the Live at Raul's comp.

Line Up -

Jesse Sublett - Bass, Vocals
Billy Blackmon - Drums
Jon D. Graham - Guitar

You need Winrar or something similar. The file needs to be un-shrunk or unpacked.
