"This record was recorded in mid-1979 and was the debut album of the Last. Due to a number of factors, both the package and the record itself never came out the way we had planned. Here then, for the first time, is L.A. EXPLOSION the way we intended it."

The debut of The Last is certainly one of the masterpieces of power pop, 30 years later I can still find new facets that make me look always fresh as a rose and it is certainly a seminal record for the garage rock of the following decade .
It was reissued on CD in 2003 with 6 bonuses taken from the singles, but with a sound not suitable for my ears.
All 15 tracks are very beautiful and the Be Bop A Lula cover is an example of how to pay homage to the artists we love.

Tomorrow will follow their masterpiece, Painting Smiles On A Dead Man of 1983, of which a rip was running on the web but in my opinion came from some bandcamp, looked like a CD but, as far as I know, it never came out, anyway a sound always at me tough.

Highly recommended!
