The Invaders were a four piece from Alabama. As far as I know, this was their only record. The web yielded nothing on these guys; and I don't believe this has been comped yet, which is surprising because it's a great record.

The Judy's formed in Pearland, Texas around 1979. Originally a four piece; guitarist Sam Roush, was killed in an automobile accident two weeks before the release of their first EP Teenage Hangups. The decision was made to keep the band a three piece, lineup was: David Bean, (Vocals, Guitar, Keyboards) Dane Cessac, (Drums, Vocals) and Jeff Walton (Bass, and Vocals). The Judy's went on to release Three LP's, another EP, and a Single. You can further research the band, and buy their releases at the Wasted Talent Records Website, linked below. The Judy's are still around in some form, at least as of 2008 anyway.
Per request, this is a re-post from 3/3/10 with new rips, and scans: once again, sorry it took so long.
The Front Lines were a four piece from Evanston, Ill. The band formed around 1979, and lasted through 1983. This Page has a history of the band, it's members; and MP3's of most if not all of the their recordings. If your a fan of the Front Lines it's a must.

Here's a re-post from 12/23/08, that was requested quite a while ago. Included are new rips, and scans, as well as a bonus track from the Nobody Gets On The Guest-List comp; sorry it took so long!!
One thing that's fun about putting these post's together is that I learn allot about the bands that I listened to for years as well . Take for instance , I never realized the Prime Mover's didn't have a full length ,but when I looked them up I found that they recently got back together and released their first album . I think I have all their releases, and their all great . Formed in Boston by high school chums Dick Tate (guitar, vocals), Cam Ackland (vocals, harmonica), Jeff Sugarman (bass, vocals) and Dennis McCarthy (drums), the Movers were inspired by their musical heroes the Who, the Jam and the Kinks. Adopting a power chord driven, vocal harmony approach, their sound is aggressive power pop with elements of “Mod” soul and 60’s go-go. Go check them out and pick up their new record, Here's their Myspace!

I know I haven't exactly been consistently active lately; I apologise for that. After I lost my files I had stored with Megaupload, I became pretty bummed out. I then moved to back to Mediafire, but now every ones having trouble with them as well. That prompted me to look into my own domain, for the second time. On the surface it seems like a great idea; but I just cant build a blog I'm happy with using Wordpress. So for the second time, I've given up on the web hosting idea. So what does all this mean??? It means I'm staying here, and if things get to crazy, maybe it's time for the curtain to finally fall. Till then, I have tons of great records I'll be posting in the very near future. It's time to get this thing back in gear, and have fun again. I'm also planning on catching up on all of the Re-post requests I've received recently. As always, THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!!!!!!
Shotgun Solution's purpose is sharing 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, 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.
