Weber and the Buzztones – Weber and the Buzztones – 1984

Weber And The Buzztones were a little known band out of southern California. Originally called “Larry Weber Millennium” a 45 was released in 1982 with “Lambchops” and “God Blessed America”. Unfortunately “God Blessed America” didn’t make it to this EP and I’ve never heard it. Very little is actually known about them other than they regularly warmed up for Steve Taylor. The quality of this EP is very high so I have a suspicion that Steve Taylor may have been involved with this project, but I have no proof of this so it is merely a guess on my part. You have to love the “instructions” on the label, “Directions for playing: Set at 331/3 RPM Apply Phono Needle To First Cut Set Volume at Loud and Enjoy” There really should have been more from this band as I believe there is a high level of talent and I always loved “fun” bands who didn’t take themselves too seriously. The track “Runaway” was included on the 1986 Shadow Records sampler “Rock Across America”
