Bad Checks (I'm Paranoid Single)

 The Bad Checks were a three piece from Durham, NC. Brothers Robin, and Clif Man, along with their high school friend Larry Tally; formed the band in 1980.They released this, their first single in 1982 on their own Loretta Records Label. Around 1984 frontman Hunter Landen was added to the Lineup. Over a span of 20 years, and multiple Drummers The Bad Checks released a number of records, and may still be at it, although I'm not sure. I found This Band Page, if you want to check these guys out further.

Thanks for ripping this. Any chance you've done their next release, the great Graveyard Tramp EP? (Their first full length, the 3rd release isn't fab)

OK. It's definitely worth checking out. Pretty different sound from the single and significantly better. eg, http://the-theme-is.tumblr.com/post/29052752405/bad-checks-17-this-unfortunately-incomplete
