Legendary punkrock from New Orleans, c.a. 1980. Both of these bands were the brain child of Larry Holmes, an important figure (he wasn't just a musician, but also the man behind independent label and fanzine Vinyl Solution) in the early days of the New Orleans punk scene. MANIC DEPRESSIVES (incl. members of The Models!) left behind a 7" EP and two compilation tracks of melodic speed-punk. When the Manic Depressives ended, Larry formed the similar sounding 0:30 SECOND FLASH with another group of friends. They recorded a four song EP and played live a few times, but they were over even faster than the Manic Depressives. The EP was not released as planned, and Larry, like many others, got bored with punk when it turned hardcore. This relevant LP collects the complete recordings of both bands on a 45rpm 12". Side one has the Manic Depressives 7" EP and compilation tracks from 1980-1981, while side two is the unreleased 0:30 Second Flash 7" EP from 1981. Pressed in a an edition of 500 copies on black vinyl, housed in a colour jacket with previously unpublished photos and liner notes.
