PTA'S-A LONG GOOD-BYE, 8" E.P., 1982, JAPAN MP3/Flac
Long forgotten Japanese crew who issued a handful of odd sized and odd sounding vinyls on the Cragale imprint, a label (and, I believe, record store) associated with the Minor Club that birthed so much of the 80's Japanese underground (think Fushitsusha, Maher Shalal Hash Baz, Kousokuya etc) that would go on to be associated with the PSF label and it's a scene that The PTA's deserve to be considered more than a footnote of. The A side establishes a sexily seasick post punk saunter with cod-ethnic overtones and weaves snake-y strands of sax through the results to riveting ends while the B-side's lays out some Idiot O'Clock-like post-Velvets motion and rubs it against the grain of Phew style art pop eccentricity.
