Modern Minds (Canada, 1980)

Edmonton's Modern Minds released one 7" EP in 1980 that is quite likely to cause collectors to go apeshit whenever it appears on eBay. This is a live recording from shortly after the EP release - at one point during the show they are handing copies out to the crowd. It was recorded at the Riviera Rock Room and broadcast over radio station K-97. In 2007 Record Shop Base in Japan released a CD with the EP and 8 demo songs that may still be available. Some of these song titles are guesses but Moe was nice enough to quite often name each one before it was played.
