The Bangles EP


On this date in 1982, The Bangles released their debut self-titled EP. The five song offering had "The Real World", "I'm In Line", "Want You", "Mary Street" and "How Is The Air Up There?". None of the tracks wound up on their 1984 debut album, All Over The Place. "The Real World" was re-mixed and was released as a single in 1983 but did not chart. The Los Angeles new wave band disbanded in 1988.

Bought this EP new after seeing them perform as The Bangs at a small venue in Anaheim. They originally started out as a paisley underground/mod outfit.

This is one of the best records of the eighties. I'm not even really into the sweet pop thing but they really nailed it on this EP.

They received the only Beatles comparison I've ever heard that I thought had merit.

Truly an excellent release and sadly damn near impossible to find these days.
