Nasty Facts-Drive My Car
Jimboco Records 45, 1981
The lone single by NYC's Nasty Facts is one of the few records coveted by punk rock collectors that is actually worth the absurd prices it fetches. All three tracks are great and have been compiled on some of the many Killed By Death/Bloodstains/Back to Front-type compilations of rare punk stuff. The story is that a few high school kids asked a slightly older woman named Cherl Boyze to be in the band because they thought she looked the part; she played bass, sang, and wrote the songs. She is also the only member of the band who seems to have disappeared.
