Dot City Records – Tampa (1981)

Lester Esser – guitar, voice
Randy Barnwell – bass, backing voice
Allan Esser – drums

Time to Talk
Everything means nothing anymore
Hearts and flowers

A less sensitive soul than myself might refer to this band as art-fags. Two of the songs are not bad, with “Everything means nothing anymore” being a dreary affair. This would be a lot better if they left their phase shifters at home. The guitar goes from almost inaudible to overpowering every 30 seconds and I detest phase shifterized bass. These guys may be the only Florida band I know of to take advantage of the proximity of Evatone in Clearwater to do a flexidisc. I have never seen or heard of another copy of this – so good luck finding one.
