Artist: NORMALS
Title: Vacation To Nowhere
Format: LP
Label: Last Laugh
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"New Orleans punk premiers The Normals have long been considered staples of the KBD stew, with their first and last single Almost Ready b/w Hardcore being one of the finest examples of both melodic and manic late 1970s bashing. As a compliment to their reissue of that timeless 7", the freaks at Last Laugh Records have dug up what may qualify as one of the primo lost albums of the original American punk rock cream-dream, Vacation To Nowhere. And while this isnt the first time that enlightened members of the public have been given a chance to hear some of the 12 throttling tracks contained on this album (Airline 61 released the retrospective CD Your Punk Heritage in the late 1990s), this is the first time that these recordings have been released as a complete album. Each song on Vacation... stands as a perfect example of 70s power pop craft coarsely blended with spasmodic intensity late 70s punk polenta. Even with the oddly out of place sentimentality expressed on Memories, the band never veers off course. Songs like Sometimes The Truth, What Do You Think Of The U.S.A.?, and the titular Vacation To Nowhere, are (at this point) theoretical classics I imagine Teengenerate would have covered at least half of this album, had they heard it in 1993. These songs are so good in fact, that they seem familiar and inviting, like something that one returns to rather than discovers for the first time." - Victim Of Time.
