B-52's - B-52'sVendor: Mobile fidelity Silver
NEW VINYL ON MOBIL FIDELITY SILVER 2010
Numbered Limited Edition 180-gram LP Sourced from Original Master Tapes, Half-speed mastered.
The first of many acts to cement the college town of Athens, GA, as a hotbed of alternative music, the B-52's took their name from the Southern slang for the mile-high bouffant wigs sported by singers Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson, a look emblematic of the band's campy, thrift-store aesthetic. The five-piece group, which also included founding members Fred Schneider, guitarist Ricky Wilson (Cindy's older brother), and drummer Keith Strickland, formed in the mid-'70s after a drunken evening at a Chinese restaurant; the bandmembers had little or no previous musical experience, and performed most of their earliest shows with taped guitar and percussion accompaniment. www.theb52s.com/
