Here's a fairly rare and great single from the Los Angeles CA, area four piece, The Decadents. Hideaway Girl is top notch, 60's influenced Powerpop; while Runaway Train is a great hard driving Punk tune. After a lengthy internet search that basically came up empty; here's the few pieces of info I was able to find. Most mentions have the band hailing from Covina, CA. Being that Covina is pretty close to Los Angeles, that may or not be true? There appears to be two sleeve variations of this single, each with a different band photo on the front; (I'm not sure which one is more rare?). And last, they released an Lp in 1983 titled "Subliminal Hokum". unfortunately, that's all I got. As per usual, if anyone has any info to share, please feel free.
