Pressure Boys reunion

Filed under: Fun,Uncategorized — Lex @ 7:47 am

I was a fan of the Pressure Boys from the moment Tony Plutonium brought me a copy of their cassette “Jump! Jump! Jump!” when he came up to New York to visit in the summer of ’83. They were a band way ahead of their time, and suffered the fate such bands usually suffer.

Last weekend they did two reunion shows at the Cat’s Cradle in Chapel Hill to raise funds for cystic fibrosis, which lead singer John Plymale’s daughter has. Sadly, I couldn’t make either show. But a bunch of people shot video and have posted it to YouTube. Here’s Tony’s shot of the song “Is This Normal?”


Peter Cashwell (May 5 entry, “You’re Living In My Town”) on the Pressure Boys reunion: “Clearly, the music scene in Chapel Hill in the 1980s was like a cross between Laurel Canyon in the 1970s and the royal house of Thebes in Oedipus Rex.”
