white heat 1980 - power pop. at least that's what the doctors say it is...

their name white heat of course will lead your thoughts into a wrong direction: the white heat played power pop, not all too bad, but no sensation at all, the b-side reminding me of the undertones and the a-side sounding like the pop pop pop the simple minds never caught up with. but as this 7"-single changes hands for some 25 euro on discogs i thought you might like to hear the music before you decide to spend that lot.
from 1979 to 1981 white heat released one album and three singles, finished with fashion was their second release as a 7" in 1980, both tracks are not included on the album. their singer bob smeaton could later on be heard in some tribute albums for the beatles, jimi hendrix or genesis, the rest of the band vanished in the haze.
