"My Heart"

Yet another oversight... We didn't know about the Donnie & Joe Emerson reissue until after posting Ariel Pink's cover version of "Baby." While the original "Baby" is great, our favorite song on this album is "My Heart." This review does a decent job of summarizing the history of this record, but to phrase it quickly...

They were 17 and 19 in 1980, and their dad bought a studio for them to write, record, and produce an album by themselves. They are way trippier than The Shaggs (and they can actually play).
