Scram - Stand Up (1987)

This trio (Matt Mungan - vocals and guitar, Greg Mungan - bass and vocals, and Craig Heim - drums / percussion) were pretty well known in Philadelphia in the mid 80s but they have pretty much disappeared from people's minds since then. It might have to do with them changing their sound and releasing their second album Kingsessing Trails in 1990 (maybe 1991?) when they went the route of the Red Hot Chili Pepper bandwagon and experimented with soul, funk, and jazz sounds. At least that's what I hear - I have never actually heard the second album because I have never been able to find it.
I like this one though. This is their first. Two of the songs on this record have appeared elsewhere: Something to Cling to was on a 1986 7" compilation called That Was Then...This is Now!, and the John Lennon cover Imagine that was released on "Another Shot for Bracken"

1 Here Tonite
2 Freedom
3 Our World
4 Something to Cling to
5 Just How Much
6 Stand Up
7 Imagine
8 Move a Mountain
9 Don't Say a Word


"Here Tonite"

Hi there, I was just wondering if there was any chance of a re-up of this album? Love the blog!
