The Marquis' - Viddy This 7"



Pretty cool slab of power pop, methinks. I was maybe expecting less songcraft and more hilarity due to the excessive amount of leather pants on display. Not that this isn't still somewhat hilarious, but it rocks and the drums sound fantastic. Can't find much info but it seems these guys were from Chicago.

The A-side is fucking Awesome! the B is pretty good, too.
This is definately a lost gem, thanks for digging it up and sharing with the world!!

I knew The Marquis when they were forming and was offered the bassist spot! Alas, 'twas not to be....when Todd and I first met, we jammed to "Larks Tongues In Aspic Part 2," he could play anything! I think he went by "Todd Dawes" back that early. We hung out at the Space Place in Chicago, see: http://punkdatabase.com/wiki/Space_Place
