CITY-X- Ude af drift! 7″EP (Irmgardz, Denmark, 1980)

City-X_frontCity_X_backCityX_inside1City_X_inner2CityX_vinyl1CityX_vinyl2Thanks to everybody who donated – thanx for making my life miserable by chaining me for yet another year to this blog! And apologies for not posting a new record sooner, but I’ve been terribly snowed under and as if that wasn’t enough, I caught some influenza and got pinned down for days. Pig disease? Not that I wouldn’t have deserved it, being the swine that I am.

Let’s keep this short for once: CITY-X‘ first 7″ (well, at least the first one I knew of. And, quite frankly, the only one I have here, sitting in my boxes). What can you say about this? The first side is perfect and second side sucks. Well, that could be said about many things, couldn’t it.
Peter, our Powerpearl from the KBD blog, had posted this 38 years ago. Now I’m posting it again. Why? Because I love coverboys! Is the smasher “Avis” about the car rental? Thanks to my scans, you now can finally find out more about this controversial topic. And what could be the answer to “Only Cops can”? Right – (almost) only the Clash can (play that sort of music without sounding too corny).
Expect more intriguing insights into the black holes of the entertainment industry soon!

PS: Just because I’m so anal about these things: I separated track 2 from track 1 even though they’re not on the vinyl.

  4. Keller boy! I think you´re nasty. Saw City X when they transformed into A.D.S. What a disappointment. Coverboy is the hit but the other ones are o(in)k.

    Hahaha@ Wagner for the poor. Or maybe Manowar for the middle class? Or am I redundant/totally off here?

    Cool record, too, as usual.

    Nice music, indeed.
    Just for the record (he): Avis is Danish and means (news)paper. The song ”Avis” is about all the lies papers tell ya, and not about the car rental company .)

    have you noticed the homophobic undertones in the song coverboy? why don’t you say anything about it, if you have? I think I like your serious posts better,
