Protagonists (Hard On Me Single)

If I didn't know better, I would guess this record was from the 90’s. It has many of the attributes that became popular with many of the PopPunk bands from that era, ( driving guitars, nasally vocals), especially the B side (not that that’s a bad thing mind you). As it turns out, The Protagonists were a four piece from Naperville, Illinois; a city about 30 miles west of Chicago. They formed sometime in the early 80’s, and I think this may have been their only record. According to their Facebook Page; they were 16 year old High School kids, at the time. Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything else about the band. (Link Updated 5/5/12)
