I had mine for a while, I think if you look, it shows up on Ebay every now and then and is still pretty reasonable. Thanks for the comment.

the band 'born ruffians' uses whole chunks of 'modern girls' on their track 'this sentence will ruin your life'

One thing I love about this record is how angry it is, but the anger is all in the lyrics. Hamburger Radio is one of the best songs I can think of that's sung from the perspective of a teenage misfit observing all the kids who do fit in. I'm curious if the other tracks on Discotheque are any good. I like the title track, but it's not as biting as the stuff on this one. Thanks for the post!

Thanks for this! Really digging the Power Pop.

I'd previously heard Hamburger Radio on one of the Shake Some Action comps.
