B Team - Buy American (Faulty Products) 1983






B Team - Buy American







B Team really deserve much more recognition than they have ever received. I have never heard anyone drop B Teams name in discussions regarding dark wave or post punk bands like Gang of Four, Joy Division,Crispy Ambulance , Ski Patrol, 1919 etc, but I am changing that right now.

This Lp is bursting at the seems with rolling darkwave like bass lines excellent Gang of Four inspired guitar work and the moody 80's vocal delivery that you would come to expect from a good postpunk/darkwave band, however at the same time I also hear the UK Subhumans in these songs as well...great stuff that is absolutely essential to your post punk record collection...Dave G.

Thanks for your kind words about B Team. I was the singer and bassist in the band. In case you're interested, I've put a recording of our last show (at Wolfgang's in San Francisco) up on Bandcamp.
