Slow Children - Mad About Town


On this date in 1982, Slow Children released their second album, Mad About Town. It included their single, "Vanessa Vacillating" as well as an extended version of "President Am I" which was on their self-titled debut album. The Los Angeles band was really the duo of Pat Shazar and Andrew Chinich who were originally from Los Angeles but moved to England to concentrate on their songwriting. They released two albums by 1982 but that was it.
