Thoroughly Rockin' Rich Kids Cover From Hard Left (Mike from Slumberland Records)

If I didn't already know that this guy has impeccable taste -- (Heck, I was at a house party in the old College Park house that he shared with some of my Record Co-Op co-workers back in 1989 and he had an amazing record collection then) -- here's proof.

Mike Schulman of Slumberland Records is in a new band, Hard Left, with Stewart Anderson of Boyracer and Timothy Scott Brown, and they are cranking out some smashing tunes in the style of the first glorious wave of post-punk and new wave.

And they've gone and covered one of my favorite singles from that era: "Ghosts of Princes in Towers" by ex-Sex Pistol Glen Matlock's Rich Kids.
