arson - white folks 7"

(((re-post from 11/28/13)))
     frank over at the great shotgun solution posted up some toronto stuff, inspired me to put up one too. this one's got one of my favourite songs to come out of this city. their one and only release, put out in 1979. they formed back in 1977, and with members of the viletones and the ugly. there was a great zine interview with them last year in equaling x distort. tons of info and lots of photos and flyers. it's a really great read, and if you want, you can actually download the pdf of it on the exd site. on the original press of this 7", the a-side is (livin' with the) white folks. but on this ugly pop re-issue, the sides are flipped. not sure why they did that, but i'm not complaining. unfortunately white folks isn't that good of a track. it's an alright listen, but it's really slow and far too long. the killer here is coho coho. such a fantastic song.
01. coho coho (great sound and vocals, and actually really catchy.)
02. (livin' with the) white folks (kinda boring.)
go to ugly-pop for the re-issue of this.
