Facebook, I have since learned that New Jersey-ites The Blisters, had an array of other releases under their belt, some dating back to 1987. In fact, this three song jewel was to be the group's last recorded foray, which is sort of tragic given the tunes are so utterly, um...blistering. "Teenage Flower" is par excellence bar-rock-cum-punk gold, and the two flips by and large follow suit. The Blisters adhere to the same beer-battered recipe as The Figgs, Magnolias, Junk Monkeys (them again?) and The Leonards, but at the end of the day all roads lead to Minneapolis, or more specifically Paul Westerberg and Co. I hope I have the chance to hear more of where this came from. A tell-all bio can be read here at your leisure.
