Welcome Back Lance Rock Records...Making Dreams Come True !

 At some point in 1986, at CKCU-FM here in Ottawa, I was tasked one day as a volunteer, to process the new arrivals for our library.  I ran across a cassette album in the pile of swag from Calgary, Alberta's Color Me Psycho called "Kiss Me, Then...Color Me Psycho".  In the listening room across from the on air studio, I slammed it into deck and proceeded to lose my mind!  TOP shelf, snarling, hard driving, brain baking,  Canadian punk rock influenced garage rock!  I immediately thought of England's The Damned as an influence and then thought it was right up there with other Canadian gems like Forgotten Rebels, Durango 95 / Purple Toads, UIC, etc.  I was gonna pump this fucker on my show "No Future Now" on it's next voyage!  I ended up nabbing a copy (which I still have btw) at either Records On Wheels or the Record Peddler in Toronto later that year while down that way to see a show (Alex Chilton perhaps?)  Color Me Psycho fucking RAWK!  The band waxed a second album in 1988 called "Pretend I'm Your Father" (also kick ass) and then later evolved into the stellar behemoth: Forbidden Dimension (also fucking RULED)!  

2 weeks ago at 4 a.m. in the morning I saw a post by Jack Tieleman (Lance Rock Records/The Black Dot/ The Black Tie), and literally gasped!  A fucking vinyl version of "Kiss Me Then..." after 35 years !  Christ I had nearly given' up hope !  Here's the scoop...there only 200 will go fast!  I have a few available here in the shop,  as do others of course, somewhere and in the western part of our large nation, hit Jack up direct at The Black Tie 

"Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus..."  His name at this very moment is Jack Tieleman...πŸ˜‰πŸ’•πŸ‘½
