Doug and the Slugs: Too Bad (1981)

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). Once the band re-recorded their debut single, "Too Bad" the band left the underground and waded into the mainstream, adding some great catchy, clever, pub-ish new wave to staid Canadian radio.

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!

Hey Sluggers, let us know what you think of "Too Bad" in all it commercial glory in the COMMENTS section (which is where you'll find the single link)

  2. Good to hear both versions, I'm more partial to this one, but I really, really like the original b-side, 'The Move'.

    Cheers to you and BristolBoy!

    1. Yeah that first single was a big find for me (thanks again BB!)
