The Ant Lions 7" (1986, Naked Mango)
Yet another Google-devoid commodity, this time from a jangly El Cajon, CA export called The Ant Lions. Going on a first name basis only (that's Michael, John and Kurt) whomever was relegated to guitar in this trio was most likely an acolyte of Peter Buck, Johnny Marr, and perhaps even Marty Wilson Piper. In league with that very trifecta, the Ant Lions skewed more towards folk than power chords, and all the better IMO. Really impressed by the A-side here. If anyone has the dirt on these fellows please fill us in!
