The Scenics - In The Summer
Label Dream Tower Records
IN THE SUMMER is a collection of eight songs recorded on four track reel to reel during 1977, and then four more during 1978. They were a band that came together in the early Toronto punk/new wave scene, fronted by dual excellent singer-songwriters, and became a great band that was even more underground than the others there at that time. This legendary anthology includes fan-favorites “Do The Wait,” “O Boy,” “Wild Trout,” “I Killed Marx” and the title track.
“Largely unappreciated when they originally existed between 1976-1981, these underground icons merged Television’s guitar work, Big Star’s pop prowess, Pere Ubu’s dementia, and The Ramones’ urgency.” —Jonathan Cummins, Montreal Mirror
