Release Info: Thrills - N.A.F.I.T.C. - Original Boston Punk 1977-1981 (2004)
"The Thrills only released one single during their lifetime, 1979's "Hey! (Not Another Face in the Crowd)"/"I'll Be the Heartbreaker," both sides of which are included here. They've managed to conjure an entire album out of their legacy on this CD, though, by adding six songs recorded on a Boston radio station in October 1978, as well as live tracks from 1978 and 1981. What's here is evidence of a good but not blinding punk-new wave band that certainly deserved to record at least one studio LP. Barb "Wire" Kitson's measured, resonant girl group-influenced lead vocals will generate inevitable (and reasonable) comparisons of the Thrills with Blondie. The Thrills were punkier (and usually faster) than Blondie, however, without songs quite as good or studded with hooks, though they were OK." (All Music Guide review)
