Flying Squid (Question, Only Questions)

   Heading to Philly tonight, with my Wife and Daughter to check out The Hives. Unfortunately, I never had a chance to see them. Hoping they still rock; could use a good show.
 
   Speaking of..... Here's a mystery two sider from Flying Squid. I believe I had a request for this one, years ago; sorry for taking so long. Couldn't find anything on the net but best I can tell; they were a Philly three piece and this appears to be their only record. Not sure how many copies exist but all the ones I've seen are signed. Could be, they recorded the record and sold them a couple of years later. Oddly, the record label is dated 1980 and the sleeve lists 1982. The only Flying Squid mention I found was on an Ebay listing, that called them a metal band. At any rate, to my ears; this is Punky Powerpop, all the way.
Enjoy!

Line Up -

Rhys George - Vocals, Guitar
Pasquale Paris - Drums
Ken Webb - Bass

Flex! - gives this a date of 1983 and also says they were a Philly band with a sole release [with Husker Du elements]
