CASSIE- Change My Image 7"
One half of the late great Sing Sing records is back with another killer reissue label and we are stoked to be helping them with distribution on three of their first releases. These aren't shipping till late May early June. Prices will be cheaper the more that grab, so hop on the REMINDER TRAIN!!!
Whether or not the name of the label used for the release - A.K.A. - was any reference to Pine’s numerous underworld connections is unclear. What is clear, however, is the strength of the two Barker originals. ‘Change My Image’ is a bratty bubblegum-punk paean to future sell-out success (‘Gonna kick off my jeans and start smoking fancy cigarettes!’) while the furious guitar riffing on ‘Will You’ fortunately for today’s listeners finds CASSIE about three years out of step with the prevailing New Pop styles of 1982.
Instantly obscure upon issue, CASSIE’s only record became instantly hard to find. The band would continue to perform without issuing any further material before finally breaking up in 1985.
