Wayne County and The Electric Chairs - Trying To Get On The Radio

|

On this date in 1978, Wayne County and The Electric Chairs released their fifth single, "Trying To Get On The Radio". It was backed by "Evil Minded Mama". The A side appeared on their third album, Storm The Gates Of Heaven. The B side did not. The A side was toned down and did not contain any offensive words or subject matter (like earlier single, "Fuck Off") and seemed to be a legitimate attempt to get radio airplay. It did not. The New York City punk band was fronted by Georgian born transsexual, Wayne County, and began life as simply The Electric Chairs. When the lead singer's notoriety became even bigger than the band, Wayne's name was prominently out front in the band's name. Supposedly, an operation in 1980 made him "Jayne" County, but he/she has claimed that the equipment was not altered.
