a-side is a "Zach's Choice" and bonafide classic of heart-wrenching new wave swing. b-side is from my technically not but still sort KISS record. listening thru the KISS discography has been one of the more fulfilling things i've done for myself this year. special thanks to Wes Jones for giving me a tiny Chiquita brand amp years ago and to Jacques Granger for talking me thru my KISS journey.
