The Punts-7"

Ok Ok Ok....I just got back from backpacking the High Sierra's for 5 days and had the toughest, yet the most enjoyable hike of my life. My vacation extends to this Sunday and I am hoping for some California sun at the beach.



The Punts? SF New Wave band that featured Bonnie Hayes who would morf this band into Bonnie Hayes and The Wild Combo which this A Side would be featured on their debut album. The song would also be featured in the movie Valley Girl that starred a young unkown Nicholas Cage. You know the typical story, boy from the wrong side of the tracks meets girl from the good side of town. Well it was the new wave LA version. This is somewhat lighter fare in Kennyhel77 land, but hey, I like what I like. I must state again that San Francisco had many different types of bands that formed the embryo of new music, and The Punts were one of them. Anyways DL this and bop around to a nice couple of pop songs.

  2. Cheers Longy, tired but happy to be home and in one piece. Now I need a few pints to get me back in the mood. Hope you like this single. Not my typical fare, but kinda cool.

  3. Thanks much for this. I was a big fan back then and saw them quite a few times. My turntables broken though, so haven't heard this in a long time.

  4. I saw The Punts perform Shelley's Boyfriend and Rochambeau at City College of San Francisco about 1978 or 80(?). There were almost 10 people there and they were awesome. Just put on the old vinyl tonight.
