Pylon - Cool


On this date in 1980, Pylon released their debut single, "Cool". The B side was "Dub". Both songs appeared on their self-titled four song EP released in 1980. They were also added as bonus tracks to their debut album, Gyrate, when re-released on CD (as Gyrate Plus). The new wave band hailed from Athens, Georgia, also home to the B52's and REM. They disbanded in 1983 and had re-formed on and off ever since until guitarist Randy Bewley passed away on February 25, 2009 which may or may not mean that the band will call it quits permanently.
