The Peens (Four Song EP)

The Peens were a three piece from Erie, PA. I couldn't find anything about them, so I'm going to assume this is somewhat rare. Three out of the four tunes are kind of strange and quirky, however the song "Thrill Me" is an underrated late 70's style Punk smasher.

The Trend (Lucky Day Single)

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150862655369747.475569.41437134746&type=3 The Trend were originally a four piece from Kennett, Missouri. John McMullan formed the band in 1979 while in High School; he was 16 at the time. Other than this single, they also released a LP titled "The Trend Is In"; as a five piece in 1982. The Trend disbanded in 1987 for many of the usual reasons. As is the case with mine, most copies of this record were sleeveless. I found a picture of an actual picture sleeve that I included with the download for you to check out.

The Kopterz (First Three Releases)

The Kopterz were a four piece from Portland Maine. They released a Single, a four song EP titled "The Kopterz", an Lp Titled "Dancin Disorder", and a final EP Titled "Twistin In The Wind", all on their own Broken Records Label before disbanding sometime around 1989. I've included their first Single and The Kopterz EP in their entirety. I chose my six favorite tracks from the LP and I can't say I've ever heard "Twistin In The Wind". In all, this should give you a good taste of what these guys were all about. I think you might still be able to buy the Lp , as well as their first EP; check HERE.
