(Oct 25, 2012): The Alley Cats – Give Me A Little Pain

The b-side from the 1978 single, Nothing Means Nothing Anymore/Give Me A Little Pain.  The Alley Cats were a trio (Randy Stodola, Dianne Chai, and John McCarthy) that was part of the first wave of California punk bands.  This single was released on the Dangerhouse Records label, an early independent that also released other top California punk/new wave acts including X, the Avengers, the Bags, the Weirdos, and the Dils).  The cover for the single that appears here is the original 7″ colored picture sleeve, instead of the better known black and white picture sleeve of the band in concert that accompanies the 2000 re-release.
