While I'm not terribly big on these guys (and girl), I had a request a long time ago for Hoboken, NJ's Individuals, so what the hell. Fields was produced by Gene Holder of dB's fame, and furthermore, Mitch Easter is credited for "engineering and good ideas." Hmmm. The Individuals definitely had the early '80s college rock thing going, with a touch of the "new south" vibe tossed in for good measure, not to mention a razor-sharp awareness of rhythm. With that, I'd say that Fields would make a great appetizer for a Talking Heads binge. You can also download the Individual's Aquamarine ep right here.
01. My Three Sons (Revolve Around the Earth)

09. Johnny's in the Mines

Update: Fields, along with the aforementioned Aquamarine ep have been reissued on CD through Bar None, and as you might imagine, is also available from iTunes and Amazon downloads.
