Armada –Just For You

Armada –Just For You/ Get Ready Get Mean –Houston Records SRI (1976 US)

From Framington (Ma), Armada was a high school band who became a pretty successful cover band. It appears that this is their only release, but there is actually a Myspace page up with some live tracks and line-up information:

Just For You falls somewhere be Boston RAT era rock and more overt Powerpop. The chorus really reminds me of the Rich Kids for some reason. Get Ready Get Mean is tougher and wilder insofar as approaching US Proto Punk/Glam NYC style...All in all a great find!
