From the Stacks: The Heaters

I bought this one for a quarter from the Starship Records cutout bin because I thought maybe they might have some relation to The Knack. I was kind of right.

The band came out of the same L.A. scene as The Knack, and according to their website the “My Sharona” guys got the skinny ties and vest look from them.

Check out that link — it’s a fascinating read of a band that could’ve been, from getting booed off the stage when opening for Van Halen at the Whiskey to the string of mistakes that doomed this lost power pop classic to obscurity.

The following clip isn’t from this album, but it gives you a taste. Sweet!
