Knots "Heartbreaker" b/w "Action"

(Last Laugh) Goddam this is good! 1980 NYC punk from an era when power pop/pop punk could still sound menacing. How the 90s pop-punkers so bizarrely misinterpreted the Ramones to make catchy punk nasal and impotent still confounds me almost 20 years later. If only Joey Pinter's band had made it big, as their ridiculously awesome song "Action" should have ensured, maybe the punk world woulda been a better place. This reissue is historical and hysterical and perfectly presented. You need this. See our great Roctober feature on the Knots from issue #49, posted at this blog:
