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)
MRML is a blog about the devestating effects of culture: music, politics, comics plus etc. blah blah blah. At times MRML will post fine, unpurchasable three-chord obscurica (punk, pop-punk, new wave, mod, power-pop, gospel, reggae, hardcore, rockabilly, folk, country...whatever.) - - - - - - "The otherwise unavailable files in this blog are posted for a limited time and are intended for educational, non-commercial use.
