PYLON – Cool 7” 1979

Now a bit early stuff by Pylon, an American rock band from Athens, Georgia. The band’s danceable sound, a blend of new wave, post-punk, jangle pop, alternative rock and funk rock, influenced the Athens music scene and the 1980s American pop underground. This is their debut single on DB Records and the a-side is a pretty nice poppy mid-tempo tune, love this sound because it’s soooo impulsive and simple, cool guitars and the female voice rounds off the song to the whole, a real cracker. The flip weakens a bit, rather such a post-punk thing, not really my cup of tea and in the long run a bit annoying. Anyway, a record which is different and not uninteresting. The band released three albums and many 7Inches. Vanessa (vox), Randall (guitars), Michael (bass) and Curtis (drums) and after turning down an offer to open for a major U2 tour, they decided to break up the band in late 1983.
