The Cuts - Heart Attack EP
The Cuts Heart Attack EP (Lookout, 1999)
This debut by Oakland band The Cuts has the distinction of being:
1. One of the singles least worthy of being common Bay Area dollar bin fodder,
2. At the time, the best record Lookout put out in quite a while,
3. One of the best seven inches that Lookout released,
4. Probably the last good record that graced the Lookout label,
5. The precursor to two fine albums,
6. A look at Andy Freeze's pre-Time Flys rock & roll noise,
7. A reminder of why this band is much missed.
Here are two of three cuts. Find the single, 'cuz all the songs are killers.
