The Bangles: Rarities 1981-1989 (plus this week's TOP TEN!)


For this week's top ten, please come visit The Big Takeover!

This one's for Mrs. CallPastorJerkface




Unlike The Go-Go's, The Bangles earliest phase got put on tape. The Bangles association with the other bands of L.A.'s so-called Paisley Underground (named for it's open fetishization of sixties-ness in defiance of punk's "never trust a hippy" doctrine) is fully justified by the swirling vocals and ringing guitars on these early tracks. This boot compiles up their first indie single from 1981 on Downkiddie Records, their debut e.p. from 1982 on Faulty Products and a few stray, uncollected B-Sides from later on.

  4. Much as I love the Bangles, I still think that the definitive version of "How Is The Air Up There?" was done by New Zealand band the La De Das in 1966

  7. thanks for posting - The Bangles always had a spark missing from so many 80s bands.

    If you ever come across Debbi Peterson's post-Bangles release (the self-titled Kindred Spirit from 1995) with the excellent Siobhan Maher from 'River City People' please post.
