Newmatics / Screaming Mee Mees split 7" (1981)
Double a-side from two New Zealand bands. Newmatics were a punk/ska/soul/funk band that existed for a short time in the early eighties. Their offering here is in the punk/reggae style.
Screaming Mee Mees were a post-punk power pop band that dabbled in the 2 Tone sound on occasion. However their song on this record is not ska at all.
Newmatics - Judas
Screaming Mee Mees - Can't Take It
