YELLOW VINYL LP
HEY SUBURBIA SUB001
Cleveland power-pop punk trio Beatnik Termites was another group of Ramones fanatics that
merged a heavy Ramones influence with a love of surf rock; their caustic pop melodies and
ironic, stinging lyrics turning the soft underbelly of pop music on its head, yielding a sound
that had tinges of innocence, beneath a knowing, thrash-rock wink. Front man Pat Kim (AKA
Pat Termite) started the band back in 1987 with drummer Reggie Silvestri and bassist Brian
McCafferty, the group was reputedly a favourite of Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain according to his diaries.
This is a limited reissue of their hyper rare debut 6 tracks 12", whose original copies are
impossibile to find for decent prices online. All Ramones maniacs now can fill that hole in their collection
thanks to the Hey Suburbia label.
