The RPM'S, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, began as a cover band playing with pickup drummers at local bars. An impromtu practice at Jill Kossoris' (Shivvers) house and the introduction of her friend, drummer Rob Mccuen took the band out of the cover circuit and focused their talents on writing original material. The bands only 45 was released in November of 1980 and ranks as one of the best two siders to emerge from the incredible Milwaukee music scene of the 1980's. The single was released in a run of 500 copies on the bands own Hit-Man records and is highly sought after today as both cuts are flawless powerpop tunes.
