(May 3, 2013): The Skunks – Earthquake Shake

From the b-side of the 1979 single, Can’t Get Loose / Earthquake Shake.  Punk from Austin, Texas.  The band was regularly onstage with the likes of as The Ramones, The Police, Gang Of Four, The Clash, Blondie, Patti Smith, Ultravox, The Cramps, etc.  Never to make it big and this tune is about as good as they get (at least it is what they are best known for).  It is said that this single was recorded for $10 dollars.
