lazer boy | forget nothing

laser boy were another one of those bands unlikely to grace the hallowed pages of nme. not because they weren't good, but because they didn't fit the rag's definition of 'cool'. keeping your head down and focusing on writing quirky, catchy tunes that don't fit into a particular mold is not very fashionable as far as the nme's concerned. at least it hasn't been for a good 10 years anyway.

freek was a really good record label. i miss really good record labels.

cd released by freek records in 1996.

sharing is caring.

edit: i'm an oaf. it's lazer boy. duh. also, i forgot to mention, for those interested, the band was led by chris trout (bear, spoonfed hybrid, ac temple).
