Doug and the Slugs: Too Bad (1980)



For an even briefer moment then their fellow eighties CanCon radio stars, The Payola$ (see HERE), Doug and the Slugs were a part of the Vancouver punk scene documented in Bloodied but Unbowed (see HERE). The band rate passing mention in the movie because of this 1980 independent single, "Too Bad" which would later be re-recorded and find them swept away as Canada's part of the new wave that inundated radio in the late seventies and early eighties. (The B-side, "The Move", has never been re-issued)





Before the MoFo's at MF locked my files, MRML had posted EVERY (out-of-print) Doug & The Slugs albums and you can see them here!





These new D & S rips and scans were generously provided by ace archivist BristolBoy from My Life's A Jigsaw, who deserves a flurry of thanks!

  6. I like me some Doug & The Slugs but I don't think you'll convert me to loving them ala' Mega City Four or T.V. Smith.
