1,2,3,4,5,6! Roadrunner, Roadrunner!

Rare out-of-print & unavailable vinyl, produced by Kim Fowley (who, astoundingly enough, produced "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaaaa!) prior to the John Cale Produced effort that ended up being a beacon of light in the Eagles, Grateful Dead and Boston poisoned musical times in which it was released.

Demo reel sound, Richman's really overselling the drama, but it classic Modern Lovers with songs that never made it to the final incarnation of the first Modern Lovers Album.

Buy the final version here,

at my perrenially amusing Amazon Store

From memory, so appy-polly-loggies if I boogered it up.

The Modern Lovers cuts are fecking brilliant! Thanks.

Great stuff! People who only know Richmond through "Something About Mary" are always surprised to hear his stuff with the Modern Lovers because it actually rocks, unlike the stuff he does now.

In my punk salad days back in the late '70s, I used to encounter Kim Fowley on a fairly regular basis. Regardless of the fact that he's produced some classic tunage, the man's a complete asswad.

What really fries my crumb nowadays is that he keeps turning up on television shows as some sort of elder statesman of the Hollywood glam/punk scene.
