With Only 39 Years Left to Live, It's Time I Finally Got Around to Digitizing My Cassette & Vinyl Collection [Part 15]

Volumatix - Volume One (12" EP on Republic Recording Corporation, 1982)

Unknown and best-forgotten New Wave act out of Austin, with a legend just obscure enough to make their vinyl sell for obscene amounts on Discogs.  It's worth downloading this 6-song EP for the giggle-inducing opening track alone, whose entire lyrical content unfolds thusly: "What? Who? Huh? Uggghhhh!"  If only someone had a made a campy, poorly-acted, overwrought video to accompany it.  Oh wait, someone already did.

Bullshit! The killer track track off this EP (and the one worth spending ages tracking down) is "The Day the Surf Stood Still/Day to Day"! Skated to this shit many a night in downtown Houston and it even made it onto the Urban Animals video. Saw them a few times and they ALWAYS kicked ass live. Second album wasn't as good, but still had some great tracks. Thanks so much for posting this classic!
