The single was originally released as a limited edition pressing back in 2007. The Thunder Boys were just out of highschool and tearing up the clubs, and I totally fell in love with them and the band and signed them to Gearhead. This was their debut 7", a limited edition colored vinyl pressing of 500 hand-screened, hand-numbered cover done by Paul Imagine. I still have about 20 of those left btw, if you wanna grab one!
But I found a box of 104 records with no sleeves. I guess we just ran out of steam and never finished printing all 500 covers. It happens, especially when there's so much stuff going on. I pretty much just sealed the box up and when I moved, it got pushed into a dark corner of the storage unit.
I love this record and was so sad when the band broke up. They had such promise, but these things happen. If you haven't listened to them before, they're a nod to The Joneses, The Heartbreakers and the New York Dolls and Johnny Thunders (hence the name). Exactly the type of music that gets me every time. Their first and only full length record is only available as a digital download from Itunes, with the cover art also done by "Cuz'n" Bill.
After the band broke up, the Boys scattered to all corners of the US. They're all still playing music, doing their own thing. Most active is Mr. Zachary James, fronting his own band The All Seeing Eyes, and also playing guitar for his sweetheart's band Alexandra & The Starlight Band. Both totally fun glammy-pop bands worth checking out.
Anyway, happy new year. I'm happy to have something really fun and different to offer those of you who give a shit. And who knows what else I'll find as I finish up doing inventory? Stay tuned....
