The Toasters (Stuck On You Single)

a repost, by request, originally posted 6/03/11, new rips and scans.
   The Toasters were from LA California. They formed in 1979, and I'm pretty sure this was their only single. They also had a great track on "Waves" a comp from Bomp Records, that I included for your listening pleasure. I read in 1982, they recorded a demo for RCA Records. Unfortunately, they weren't picked up; and a year or two later, they disbanded. If anyone has a copy of the Demo, I'd love to hear it.

Line up -

Mark Lee - Keyboards, Lead Vocals
Bruce Kaplan - Guitars
Marc Navez - Bass, and Vocals
David Doolittle - Drums

   That Hideous Strength were a three piece from Brooklyn N.Y. I couldn't find much info on the band. They did release another single; But I don't remember ever hearing it. I'm not sure whether, or not this record was actually meant to be taken seriously but in my opinion, More Powerful Than A Steaming Locomotive, is pretty great and definitely the winner.

Band Members Were:

Roy Wagner - (Guitars, and Vocals)
Mike Ober - (Guitars And Vocals) I found this page with a little bit on Mike.
Harry Britwar - (Bass, and Vocals)
Rodney Smith - (He's Listed, as the designated Drummer; I'm not sure if he was really part of the group?)

Aware Records 1977

1. A Night At The Space Opera
