Left For Dead Records is re-issuing the long-out-of-print, HIGHLY collectible sole release from `80s teen-punk phenoms, Brooklyn's Nastyfacts, Drive My Car. The original sessions were recorded at Media Sound Studios in New York City in 1980 produced by Ramona Lee Jan (Comateens, Dizzy & The Romilars, Nursery School, etc.), an engineer who'd worked at the studio with the Ramones, Brian Eno and countless others. The re-release was remastered by Jack Control (aka Jack Butcher) at Enormous Door in Austin, TX.

Drive My Car is being issued by Left For Dead Records on November 25th on 12" vinyl and CD. Nastyfacts were fronted by bassist/lead singer/songwriter Cherl Boyze, an 18 year old Queer POC with the rest of the band being in their mid-teens or younger in 1981 when their three-song, 7-inch debut, Drive My Car, was released on the New York-based, independent Jimboco label. The record was a word-ofmouth hit and sold strongly in the U.S. despite group members being too young to tour. John Peel played it repeatedly on his legendary indie-centric BBC show and helped get it released in the UK on UB-40's Graduate Records punk off-shoot label. Over 40 years after their release these songs still capture the imaginations of music lovers the world over, showing up on OG punk compilations like Killed By Death while rabid collectors pay $300 for original 7-inch 45 copies.

DETAILS:

  • Remastered reissue of classic, early 1981 KBD Powerpop / Teen Punk single with Poster
  • and Liner Notes by Steve Gardner (Noise For Heroes and Another Tuneless Racket).
  •  Only 200 Numbered Black Vinyl copies.
  • * 11x17 inch copy of original 1981 poster included with 12-inch EP.
  •  Ultra-high fidelity remaster by Jack Control (Jack Butcher) at Enormous Door in Austin, TX.
  • * Pro PR and Radio promotion campaign now underway. Featured interviews, reviews and podcast appearances.
