Camper Van Beethoven - Telephone Free Landslide Victory (1985)

My first week of middle school I met this kid named Matt; I think we sought each other out because he was wearing a Misfits' Fiend Club shirt and I was wearing a Sex Pistols' Never Mind The Bullocks shirt (the assistant principal made me turn it inside out, which ironically got it more attention than before- go figure...). Anyway, Matt had an older brother that was a DJ at his college radio station, so when I'd sleep over his house on the weekends (his mom was a nurse and she worked the night shift), we'd drink a ton of Jolt cola and eat candy and stay up all night listening to his brother's cool records.

This one from Camper Van Beethoven especially sticks out in my mind- I think we may have wore this one out. Anyway; Matt Ryan, wherever you are- thanks, man. And thank your brother for hipping up our ears at such a young age.

This is the 2004 re-mastered re-issue with bonus tracks (of course)...
