Another Record of the Week Mid-Week Bonus
The Detonators is one of those bands I saw at The Milestone Club during the height of the New Wave era in the early eighties. They were a fun English band that got the crowd moving and looked to have enough to make a run for the big time, but alas it was not to be. I can find almost nothing on this band today, or its members, other than one lone mention on a page for Irish and New Wave Punk. That page mentions this EP, but contains no photos or info on the band.
This 45, on Big Blast Records, is very reminiscent of the records bands sold at Merch Tables in the late seventies and early eighties. I love how the B-Side of the record is blank. Seriously indie stuff there.
The EP Features four songs: Don't Talk, Opening a Modern Art, Restless Kids and Passé
Pat Byars - Guitar, Keyboards, Vocals
Lane Pettigrew - Lead Vocals
Brad Worden - Guitar, Vocals
Jeff Finlin - Drums
Here's Opening A Modern Art from the EP:
If you know any of those guys, please send me an update, I'd like to know where they ended up.
Check the comments. I found them, or more accurately they found me.
