It was, I believe, the summer of '76. The bicentennial summer. I was 12, I was in the local drug store and they had a sizable bin of cut-out LP's. Most were 99 cents. Looking through loads of absolulute garbage when I flipped to a copy of "Too Much Too Soon". I thought "wow, now that's my idea of a rock'n'roll band". Loved the name too. Brought it home and was at first taken back by how raunchy it was. Then after a few spins I loved it. My friends of course, thought I was nuts. Then a year later along came all the Punk bands from NYC and England. And it all molded who I am now. But I had "Too Much To Soon" as my starting point.
