Notes: The 80s were coming and the B-52's were a sure sign of things to come. A healthy dose of kitsch, humor and the new wave flavor of space-age bachelor pad. The party band out of Athens, Ga. brought some much needed fun to the music. Punk was too angry or political. Prog, too intellectual. Swaggering hair rockers were too silly to consider. And then came the Rock Lobster and all his friends. There's even a send up of Pet Clark's downtown to close out the record. The cover photo speaks for itself.
