The Desccendents - Fat EP


On this date in 1981, The Descendents released their debut EP, Fat. It contained five songs which came in at a combined total of about five minutes. The longest song was "Mr. Bass" which ran 2:09. The shortest was "Wienerschnitzel" which clocked in at an amazing 11 seconds, just longer than it took to say the title of the song! None of the tracks appeared on a regular studio album. The Hermosa Beach, California punk band was formed in 1978 and lasted almost uninterupted until 1997. They re-formed in 2002.
