The Textones - I Can't Fight It


On this date in 1980, The Textones released their debut EP, I Can't Fight It. Aside from the title track, it also included "Vacation" and "The Time Is Right". None of the tracks appeared on an album. The Los Angeles power pop band lasted until 1988. The guitarist when these tracks were released was future Go-Go's bassist Kathy Valentine (though she played guitar with The Textones). She took the song "Vacation" with her.
