Matinee Idols - Leaving Limbo ep (1982, DVG)

Seattle's Matinee Idol's strike me as too warm to be branded post-punk, but too straight-faced to lump into the power pop/wave neighborhood, at least not outright.  Possessing a proficient and often crafty acumen, this trio's knack for tuneful, modern rock unfortunately didn't earn them the reverence they deserved.  A reading of The Kinks "Who'll Be the Next in Line" closes out side one, neither improving or detracting from the original.  An online query on the Idols yields a reference to the band Pavlov's Dog, a member of whom performs on Leaving Limbo, if that means anything to you.  For the record (no pun intended), this ep was mastered at K-Disc, in my old hometown of Saugus, California.

Any advice on how to handle the download link page? I'm pretty sure I saw it on another post, but now I can't find it. All i got was a chance for a "fuckbuddy".

No Facebook for Wilfully Obscure. Not yet anyway.

What in the world are you talking about? Is the netkups link forwarding you to a porn site? Please explain. I've had 74 successful downloads of this so far.

Hello!
I already uploaded their version of the Kinks' ''Who'll Be the Next In Line'' on YouTube.

I'll try the download again tonight. I'm sure the problem was me hitting a wrong "button" on the download page.
