Proper ID - Electric Boy / Sound The Alarm 7" - 1981

Electric Boy
Sound The Alarm

Proper Id

Here's a record you would expect to find on the KBD Records blog, however this band is so obscure I'm not sure Peter has even heard of them.

Proper ID hail from Rockland County NY, which is about 30 minutes north of NYC and just happens to be were I grew up. Proper ID formed in the early 1980's to the best of my knowledge and performed in and around NYC for 10 years at the least.

On this self released 7" from 1981 you get punky new wave music that has been criminally overlooked and deserves a listen. The A-Side song "Electric Boy" is an excellent guitar driven song that brings Devo to mind at times, where as the B-side is a rather strange and quirky song that is hard to put a finger on but is completely catchy and memorable. Give these guys a listen and spread the word..Dave G.

P.S. Visit my brother blog Suburbia Suburbia Suburbia to read about and listen to other Punk, Metal,Hardcore and Indie bands from Rockand County, NY.
