The Now (Fuzztone Fizzadelic)

A repost by request, originally posted 6/22/09.The Now are a Peterborough, England four piece that formed in 1976 and as far as I know are still at it today. They released two classic singles before disbanding in 1979, "Development Corporations / Why" on The Ultimate Record Label in 1977 and Into the Eighties / Nine O' Clock on Raw Records in 1979.
   2004 brought all four original members back in the studio to record "Fuzztone Fizzadelic". It represents their original set list, as performed in 1977. If you would like to read more about the band, here's a couple of places to start : Wikipedia and Punk 77 .
 
 
Line Up -
 
Mike McGuire - Vocals
Steve Rolls - Guitars
Faz Farrow - Bass
Joe MacColl - Drums

hey, i need some help if u dont mind

id like to know the name of this band an d the title, if posible
ill try with u and other blogs about more or less power pop. this is a, i suppose, 1980 ish song, possibly american (i really dont know)
maybe they are well known and i´m just an ignorant (i dont think they are very 'obscure'). maybe it´s not the kind you like (certainly is not punk), if u dont like sorry! :) maybe you just heard it in a comp...
