Lou Reed heroin wars of the mid 1970s, Come On were an art-based punk band in the purest sense three of the five band members had limited musical experience prior to forming in the third quarter of 1976 - and in their four years of existence, they released two 'official' 7 recordings: Don't Walk on the Kitchen Floor bw Kitchen in the Clouds, 1978 - Come On Music, 85XX, 85XY. Demo cuts on the album came courtesy of a 20 year old cassette copy of the master tapes - and the CBGBs material came from a fan's handheld recorder smuggled into the club that this material made light of day is impressive enough. As for the downsides, the fact that this isnt an album, but a collection of randomly recorded tracks from both studios and live shows on different occasions, set up and arrangement, does strike the ear. The albums song-to-song flow is only really upheld by the smoothness of the songwriting, because the sound can sometimes jump all over the place. Also, the fact that there was no general idea behind the songs unity both adds to the amateurish charm of it all and creates a distraction. Every now and then youll be presented with barely finished snippets of songs or in case of the final track. Play Last. Start Radio. New Mix. Create a mix. But I'd never heard of them, and when I checked with New York Rocker's Andy Schwartz, he remembered only the name. On the evidence of these 16 homages to first-growth Talking Heads, from long before it was determined that the world moved on a woman's hips, we were missing something: the halting yet propulsive, arty yet catchy ejaculations of the uptight nerd as subversive geek. A five-year-old sex fiend joins suburban tennis players exposing their underthings join two straight songs about kitchens join the incendiary Old People: Get out in the streetsTurn over.

[Note: I am plagiarizing myself here; slicing pieces of a band review I had written previously. 'Cause laziness is where it's at...]

Originating from New York City during the Patti Smith v. Lou Reed heroin wars of the mid 1970s, Come On were an art-based punk band in the purest sense; three of the five band members had limited musical experience prior to forming in the third quarter of 1976 - and in their four years of existence, they released two 'official' 7" recordings:

Don't Walk on the Kitchen Floor b/w Kitchen in the Clouds, 1978 - Come On Music, 85XX / 85XY

Housewives Play Tennis b/w Howard After Six, 1980 - Aura Records, AUS 120A / 120B

Lyrically, Come On would foreshadow the hundreds of U.S. punk bands that would spring up from the late 70s onwards. Whether it was setting themselves up for a visit from Disney lawyers, portraits of children who smoke and drink in effort to make themselves 'mature', or an ever present angst over parent identity, chief lyricist Jamie Kaufman's minimalist wordplays would serve as great inspiration to the more humorous and literate of the punk scene for years to come.

If those literates were lucky enough to see Come On live - and if they managed to get their hands on the band's two meager singles. Otherwise, you were up the creek with nothing but a Housewife's Kitchen.

At least until Heliocentric would collect a big chunk of band material and release this compilation at the turn of the last century. The NYC comp is quite the marvel. Demo cuts on the album came courtesy of a 20 year old cassette copy of the master tapes - and the CBGBs material came from a fan's handheld recorder smuggled into the club; that this material made light of day is impressive enough.
