Losing My Edge - The Modern Lovers

Recoring their first album in 1972, it didn't hit stores until 1976 but it was perfect timing. A huge influence on the emerging punk movement, it's worth noting that the Sex Pistols first single was a cover of 'Roadrunner'. You can also here a similar vocal style in 'She Cracked'. I personally really love the Velvet Underground influence on their music. In fact, it was recorded by VU's John Cale. It also featured Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads on organ. Very cool.
