The Catch - Girls in Uniform ep (1982, Splash)

Here's The Catch - with no strings or "22" attached.  This Boston quartet's home-grown new wave/power pop smacks of summer of '81 MTV.  If you're anything like me you'll hone in on cheeky trace elements of Devo, Tommy Tutone, and perhaps on "Radio" even a little Cheap Trick, not to mention inflections of Joe Jackson populating "Nervous."  Girls in Uniform slots in at a solid 7.5 out of ten.  Per Discogs, this may have been the only recording The Catch ever dispensed. 

01. Girls in Uniform
02. It's Not Like You
03. Radio
04. Nervous
