Superior Units - Take Her In The Classroom 7"
NEW. PLASTIC IDOL RECORDS. East Bay teens from BUZZER and the IMPEDIMENTS join forces in Superior Units to make the kind of music you wish you knew existed at their bright-eyed age. It's not a shocker these kids are so well-informed given their stake in one of the world's best rock 'n' roll scenes, but you might be surprised to learn that a couple of them have been doing it this way for years, dating back to the PHIL SPECTOR SHOTGUN EXPERIENCE at age 14. The first time I heard Superior Units, they were paying tribute to their superior units. The tune was "2 Much 4 Skin," a '70s proto-punk inspired gem (included as a B-side here) that had me waxing nostalgic about the first time I heard the GIZMOS. A similar vibe hangs over this record from start to finish and it's totally boss. The EP's title track, a detention hall soundtrack for the hot-for-teacher set, and "2 Many Dipshitz," a bouncy, bratty sing-along, are ridiculous in the most complimentary way. Well done, lads! Limited to 300 copies, black vinyl. - PLASTIC IDOL RECORDS.
