Fits , The "Bored of Education" 7"
As much as I've enjoyed and appreciated the recent surge of interest in, and documentation of, early Toronto punk, there's been one consistent and inexplicable omission that has always bothered me-- this absolutely killer 1979 single from The Fits.' Bored of Education' isn't a historical footnote worthy of attention simply by virtue of its obscurity, either, but is about the best record to come out of the entire '70s Toronto punk scene, other than the first Viletones. It's ridiculous that this monster slab of tough, raw, driving and aggressive hard punk with real hooks has gone largely unnoticed.
Rectifying that, here's an authorised reissue with new insert, limited edition of 500 copies only.
