THE NASTY FACTS (DRIVE MY CAR)

I guess if you were only gonna release one record , you could feel pretty great about this one being it. I remember the first time I heard this I thought the band was British . I was really surprised when I found out they were from New York. No doubt about it, this is a pop punk classic . Nastyfacts made quite an impact on the NY punk/new wave scene, especially considering that they only released one single, and were just teenagers at the time. They appeared regularly at Max's Kansas City, CBGB, and most of the other hot spots of the time. Their success culminated in the release of a 3 song 7" ep on Jimboco Records, produced by Ramona Jan (Dizzy and the Romilars, Comateens). The single was very well received, and has become a highly sought after collectable.
Fans may be interested to know that the band recorded a 5 song EP in 2004, entitled "All Around The World", which is available at Cd Baby, Itunes, and dozens of other digi-download sites (Cherl Boyze went absent, but everyone else participated, including original producer Ramona Jan).
