Per request, here's another re-post from 8/3/2010, new rips, and scans.
The Blitz were a five piece, from Berkeley California, unfortunately this was their only single. If you missed this one the first time around, or if you just never heard it before, your in for a treat, (it's top notch Powerpop, all the way!!). I'd like to thank Todd Stadtman for commenting on the original post. He was kind enough to answer a couple of questions. Joe Satriani is thanked on the back of the sleeve, he was Todd's guitar teacher at the time and had helped with the arrangements of the tunes.Gary Phillips, later of the Greg Kihn band, also acted as a sort of shadow producer on the record, working alongside the credited producer, David Seabury. Drummer Ralph Granich was also the original drummer for the 70's Berkeley Powerpop outfit, The Rubinoos. During the 80s Todd spent time in a couple of bands, such as The B Team and The Naked Into, both of which released records; he has a couple of solo releases as well, you can check out Here.
Line up -
Todd Stadtman - Vocals, Bass
Tom Chauncey - Guitar, Vocals
David Rubinstein - Lead Guitar
Ralph Granich - Drums
Pete Dimaria - Keyboards
Shotgun Solution's main purpose is to share my passion for pre 1990's records and underground music. If your a band, label, etc. looking for exposure or if you want to contact me about anything to do with post 1990's music; check out my new blog, called Neoteric Melodies. For anything else or if your not into having your record featured here, you can contact me here, enjoy!
Unfortunately, all of my pre 2/19/12 online files were lost during the takedown of Megaupload. I hope to eventually fix all of my broken links in time. But until then, if there's something you really want to hear I’ll consider requests.
Records I'm Looking For
Here's a few records I wouldn't mind adding to my collection; some rare, some not so rare. Please click on the Records linkto see them. If you have an extra copy to sell me or maybe even trade; I would love to hear from you. Maybe you can even point me in the direction of someone who may have a copy to sell. I would prefer to "buy"; although I may still have a few things I might be willing to part with; my collection is pretty condensed these days.. If you think you might be able to help me out on any of these... Please Email Me at: email@example.com
