The Wasps: Rubber Cars (1979)



Roberto's Rarities:
An
irregular MRML series powered by the wild generosity of our reader, Roberto: Enjoy and don't forget to leave our benefactor a thank-you comment.

The Wasps are not the most obscure English punk/new wave band of the late seventies. After all, not only did Overground Records release a collection of the band's material called Punkyronics but the entire bootleg series Teenage Treats (see HERE) was named after their debut single. However, here in 2011 their album has fallen out-of-print and even when it was available, it left off their second single, Rubber Cars and replaced it with demo versions.




Tell us what you think of The Wasps in the the COMMENTS section
(where the link for Rubber Cars can be found) and if there's demand for it maybe we'll post more
rarities by them.

    "Rubber Cars" sort of reminds me of The Motors bigger hits in it's keyboard-ed-ness. But I like it much better.

  3. not too obscure, but a pretty decent band. their work has held up over the years, and not all of their contemporaries can say the same.

  4. Love the A-side. Any song championing new and impractical advances in automobile safety is a winner in my book!
