"OK, we can all agree that reissue LPs are among the coolest things going in the music bizness today, right? Well, wait 'til you get ahold of the latest trend, reissue 7" records! We're getting the party started by resurrecting the fantastic sound of The Fems. To do so, we had to travel back to the year 1982, when this single was pressed in some insignificant amount by the band and spread around the country, one copy at a time. The Fems represented early American hardcore punk at a time when speed wasn't necessary in order to punk out and the intersection of angst and humor was a common crossroads for aspirant songwriters. Hence, the barbed humor of 'Go To A Party' and 'Is It Living?' alongside the primal screaming of 'Order.' The Fems were a legend in their hometown of Buffalo, presiding over energy-charged crowds with loads of sarcastic banter and making themselves a party favorite in the wide-open early 80s. Their 7"EP Go To A Party was recorded with the vocals, drums and bass closest to the mic and the guitar somewhere in the next room -- but the low, rumbling sound that resulted is a unique vision from early punk days. For frustrated collectors, it's a must-have -- but not too many copies have been pressed, as part of our effort to duplicate the original release in every way. Make us sorry, punker! If you're in Buffalo around Christmas you can catch The Fems' annual reunion show -- but if not, this is your chance at a rare slice of punk rock greatness come back from the grave!"
