Foam Records – Miami (1981)

Immigration Report

It’s Over

Teen Idol

Greg McLaughlin

Larry Hill

Steve Myers

Excellent Devo-inspired single from these Miami rock-guy weirdos. Immigration Report features some rather un-PC lyric concerning Miami’s newest residents following a cool guitar buildup. It’s Over is the most Devo or no-wavy song on the record and almost as good as the A side. 1:19 of perfection. (I don’t wanna be a) Teen Idol (forever) is closer to new wave, but still a decent song. Another 7” followed. I believe these guys have reappeared in some form in the last year or two.
