In keeping with the Lintian theme prescribed and proclaimed by me - unwitting to workload and scheduling conflicts - here IS Kenosha Wisconsin's finest proponents of conceptually dum dum new wave/power pop/punk rock, MUS-SUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH-LE BEACH!
Muscle Beach existed from roughly 1978 to 1980 and, during the course of their rough three-year lifespan, marked time at nearly all of Milwaukee's major punk and new wave haunts (Zak's, the Palms, Starship, etc). Conceptually distinct and lyrically fully-formed, Muscle Beach were a cut above 90% of the 77-year-zero Midwestern milieu for which they were inevitably stuck opening. However, despite their obvious compositional superiority, the M. Beachers recorded and issued only one now very rare single on their own DUMB imprint in 1980 before atomizing and dispersing to the four winds forever.
A shame. ...as Milwaukee was then forced to bear both the Bo'Deans and the Violent Femmes in the decade to come.
ENJOY THEN AND LISTEN AND WATCH WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN!
LET'S GET DUMB AND HAVE SOME FUN!
