These will be some Rarer tunes (Mod, powerpop, punk, ska, - if it's got a good sound I'll post it) ripped from my vinyl collection. The idea is that now you Know about them, You can seek them out!

Teaser - First Date (1980)

b/w - English Garden

(Double A side)

Teaser were a 4 piece from Vancouver (So I guess technically this is a Canadian post).

Brian Konechny (voc guitar)
Randy Burgess (bass voc)
John Cody (drums voc)
Tom Ready (keyboards voc)

The 45's a blend of synth-pop & New wave with a sprinkle of powerpop.
First Date was penned by B Konechny whilst the flip is a pretty good cover of Bruce Wooley & The Camera Club's English Garden.

The 45 as with all of the Harbor 45's (that I know of!) was produced by John Schroeder

  2. Thanks a lot for this one, Bruce! Also thanks to Mike for the link above. I thought they were a British band but now I know they were Canadian.

  6. Just saw this. Wow, that was such a long, long time ago.
    The band was a lot of fun for sure. We were playing in a bar in Vancouver and John Schroeder walked in and asked if we wanted to record a cover. But at the last minute we needed a B side, so I wrote First Date in about 15min. Thankful to have played with some real good guys. Thanks to all of them. Still have a lot of the old tapes of us playing live. Cheers, Brian Konechny
