  • Record/Vinyl

    Italian pressing from the Rave Up label. Sharp, clear, warm remaster of original 1977-78 studio recordings by Victoria, BC, producer Joby Baker. Joby had two projects he produced up for Grammys this year. Original recordings done on 4 and 8 track reel to reel.

    ‘I don’t know much about this Canadian New Wave band that made these brilliant recordings in ’77 & ’78. Why they aren’t legends is hard to say.’ Roctober (Chicago)

    “Largely unappreciated when they originally existed between 1976-81, these underground icons merged Television’s guitar work, Big Star’s pop prowess, Pere Ubu’s dementia, & the Ramones’ urgency.” Jonathon Cummins, Montreal Mirror

    "Brainy crackpot art-pop with an ear for off-kilter melody, a headful of magic & twitchy grooves to burn. It's a sin the Scenics have left such a faint mark on punk-rock history... but the reborn cult starts here.” Ben Rayner, Toronto Star

  • Compact Disc (CD)

    Designed by award-winning designer David Montle, who has worked with The Scenics since 1979. Features photos by Brian Molyneaux and Rodney Bowes, including the photo used on the new Scenics T-shirt. Extensive liner notes by Colin Brunton, director of the Last Pogo and The Last Pogo Jumps Again, tell the story of the summer of 1977 day when he first met and first heard the Scenics. Sound is powerful, clear and nuanced- it's a new remaster by celebrated producer Joby Baker and it sounds like the original four track reel to reels, but better!

lyrics

Gotta Come Back Here Ken Badger


Gotta Come Back Here sometime
Gotta Come Back Here you all were so
very verily verily very nice

It slept in a field it fell off a horse
It ate with the vicar it could have been worse

Gotta Come Back Here sometime

I am an out of placer
I am a social gracer
I am the chair you’re sitting in
It is the way I fit in here.

Gotta Come Back Here sometime
Gotta Come Back Here you all were so
verily verily verily nice

It fell through the roof It ate off the floor
It called out for more drugs as it Crawled out the door singing

Come Back Here sometime

I am an out of placer
I is the social gracer
I am the chair you’re sitting in
It is the way I fit in here.

Gotta Come Back Here sometime
Gotta Come Back Here

about

Dream Tower Records Toronto, Ontario

Vintage/current music by Toronto protopunk legends The Scenics & related projects.

“It wasn't so much that The Scenics were ahead of their time in 1977, it's more that almost everybody else didn't even know what time it was.
New York had Talking Heads, and England was blessed with XTC, but here was their equal in Toronto...”
Bob Mersereau, author "the Top 100 Canadian Albums"
