Permanent Green Light 7" (199?)

Yet another record I was inspired to post by a contributor to the Best of the Radio Tokyo Tapes comp. Way back when this blog was getting started I shared the relatively hard to come by full length, Against Nature, from this post-Paisley Underground trio.

Permanent Green Light were from the city of angels, fronted by Michael Quercio, lead-man for fey, "Paisley Underground" demi-gods, The Three O' Clock. In the Three, Quercio blended lightweight psyche-pop with keyboard laden new wave, earning significant cult adoration in the process. After their dissolution, Permanent Green Light was his next vehicle. Not as focused as Quercio's previous endeavor, they issued a self-titled EP and the Against Nature album to no fanfare on the struggling Rockville Records label, a division of indie distributor Dutch East India Trading. Nature is well worth downloading, but I think "Together" from this 7" outdoes anything else in their brief catalog. A fuzz-pop knockout.
A. Together
B. You are the Queen of Market Street

Also of note is Quercio's latest band Jupiter Affect which has released two pretty decent albums IMO...

This was pretty good. If you have the out-of-print album available, I'd love to hear that
