Here's another dose of "lost" '80s pop, this time hailing from Tampa, FL. Train Wreck
was the co-ed Woodies
second record and if anything else, it's pretty much impossible not to tout the album's duo of driving, propulsive rockers that bookend this six song affair, "Part of My Act" and "Penelope Says." Two primo numbers that would've sounded perfectly at home on any left-of-the-dial outlet of the era, not to mention the kind of splendid tuneage Wilfully Obscure has staked it's reputation on. The four remaining songs plucked from the Woodie's Wreckage
vary, with pleasing flourishes like some well-placed mandolin in "My Muslim Wife," while the bouncy, simpleton tact of "Pretty
Brown Eyes" flirts with, you guessed it, power pop.
01. Part of My Act
02. My Muslim Wife
03. The Doctor
04. Stuck in Purgatory
05. Pretty Brown Eyes
06. Penelope Says
07. untitled instrumental
Very, very nice. Would love to hear more from this band. Thanks for all you do!
Oh man, this is great stuff. There are hints of Let's Active! in some of the songs. It's right up my alley. Thanks again for unearthing these gems from my favorite musical era!
I hear those Let's Active elements too Pernt. Always a wonderful thing.
80s power pop. Co-ed. From the south. That hits some key positive indicators for me. Plus of course your positive write up. Very much looking forward to hearing this.
