The Side Effects - s/t ep (1981, DB)

You might be inclined to deduce from the album jacket that The Side Effects were of garage/psych rock stock, but low and behold you'd be mistaken.  In fact, this long defunct Athens, GA trip had something more alluring and challenging to offer.  Post-punk was more their bag, albeit not of the brooding variety.  The commencing "Raining" massages a Gang of Four riff, retooled by
leadman Kit Swartz's chiming staccato aplomb.  "French Forest" is doubly more enticing sounding like a spot-on merger of Pylon and Mission of Burma, and "Through With You" delightfully finagles a descending arpeggio you can take to the bank.  Bassist Jimmy Ellison passed away from a brain tumor not long after this record hit the market.  This ep, so far as I can, tell was the only release to the band's credit, save for an appearance on the Squares Blot Out the Sun compilation.

I know that a lot of the Field Mice catalog is available on iTunes and Amazon, so I really can't share much by them. Maybe some demos or live material at some point.

Thanks for the reply. I found some cds of this band on an old hard drive.

I do not remember which blog I downloaded.

I upload them to zippyshare, if you don't want to put them on your blog, I apologize and delete them.

Sorry for my English, I'm not English speaker.
