Pylon, Chomp (DB Records 1982)

With the Athens GA hometown and the R.E.M. cover of "Crazy" on Dead Letter Office, I always associated Pylon with jangle-pop, but as the DFA reissue of Gyrate makes clear, they were really more about rhythm -- kin to Athens' other big name, the B-52's, along with Bush Tetras, Gang of Four or A Certain Ratio. Maybe Chomp will get reissued next ... other than a few tracks on Hits I don't think it's ever hit CD.

Pylon - "Yo-Yo"

Pylon - "M-Train"
