Bus Boys

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Bus Boys - Minimum Wage Rock & Roll Minimum Wage Rock & Roll
Pop Used - LP AB 4280 Arista
1980 Original, Custom Inner Sleeve. Includes "There Goes The Neighborhood." 4½ Stars In All Music Guide. “In The 1950s, Rock & Roll Started Out As Black Music, But You Wouldn't Have Guessed That To Pick Up Rolling Stone Or Creem In The Early '80s -- By That Time, Rock Was Almost Exclusively The Province Of Skinny White Guys, And Black Artists Were Only To Be Found On The R&B Charts, As If Chuck Berry, Little Richard, And Jimi Hendrix Had Never Happened. So If There Was More Than A Bit Of Novelty In The Music Of The Busboys, That's Not To Say That What They Were Doing Wasn't Important Or Necessary -- As One Of The First African-American Groups To Emerge To National Prominence In The New Wave Scene, The Busboys Were Willing To Embrace The Contradictions And Confront The Stereotypes That Faced Black Musicians Playing What Had Come To Be Known As "White" Music. While The Music Was Certainly Prescient, Blending Straight-Ahead Rock & Roll And Old-School R&B With George Clinton-Esque Absurdity And Harmonies And New Wave Synthesizer Squeals At A Time When Prince Was Just Edging Into Similar Territory (And Well Before Cameo Dropped The B-52's-Ish Alligator Woman). Meanwhile, "Minimum Wage" And "D-Day" Faced Universal Anxieties With Honesty And Bitter Humor, And The Band Plays With Fire And Enthusiasm Throughout. Smart And Enthusiastic Rock & Roll That's Unafraid To Take Chances; Too Bad The Busboys Never Managed Another Album This Strong.” Mark Deming, All Music Guide.... more details
