Clem East -What Are you Trying To Do To Me!




Clem East -What Are you Trying To Do To Me!/ Jupiter -MR PRS -2668 (197? Aus)


What Are You Trying To Do To Me! Is a corking Punk 'N' Roll track which kinda of reminds me of Get Out Of Denver twinned with Jim Carrol. It's full of attitude with squealing NYC-type vocals and a blistering Deniz Tek-like guitar break. The other side, Jupiter, is 6m 30 long! It's starts off quiet and subdued and turns into this near-Stoogean Blow-out. No idea whatsoever who Clem East is/was or who plays on the killer single. it's an Australian release, but apart from that, there's zilch in the way of info on the Web...


Add -on: Those kind folks at Vicious Sloth have provided an insert that came with the single...anyone want to ring the number provided? Ha...
