REPERCUSSION: This blog is devoted mainly to two groups active primarily in the 1980s — groups at times lumped in with the so-called “New Wave”. So, at some point, I wanted to post something by this group. Otherwise, there’s no connection between our heroes from Winston-Salem, NC and the Tee Hedz from NYC.

SAMPLE: "Take Me to the River (Central Park 1980)"

01 Warning Sign (beginning cut, fades in)*
02 Stay Hungry
03 Cities
04 band intros 
05 I Zimbra
06 Once In A Lifetime
07 Houses In Motion
08 Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On)
09 Crosseyed and Painless (fades in)** 
10 Take Me to the River
11 The Great Curve
     *first song in the set, Psycho Killer, is not included here
     **Life During Wartime from this show was officially released, so is omitted here (would have been the track before “Take Me to the River”)
ROB SEZ: I’ve tried to make it hard for the Internet music police to find this post. I’ve misspelled the name of the band and its original members. When Hans De V began sharing his amazing Tee Hedz tape collection a while back, the powers-that-be were all over his posts, and they disappeared quickly. I don’t want to jeopardize my humble little blog by calling attention to posts like this.
