One For The Weekend: The 2x4's

 The 2 x 4's - "Bridgeport Lathe" b/w "Little Cities" 7" (Bessemer Process Records)

Here's a lost classic from the Boston underground post-punk scene of 1980. The 2x4's were led by John Hovorka, Jr. who came up with the delightfully quirky A-side Bridgeport Lathe enhanced by some sweet electronic sizzle (courtesy of Erik Lindgren and producer Rolfe Anderson) favourably recalling that of their Cleveland contemporaries Pere Ubu. Sadly, the self-released seven on the Bessemer Process label was a one-off as The 2x4's would soon evolve into Noise Pencil and eventually The Turbines.
