Eddie and the Subtitles - Dead Drunks Don't Dance original LP


Product Information

Warehouse find! Eddie and the Subtitles 1983 rarity "Dead Drunks Don't Dance" on 13th Story Records.
SEALED, STOCK! Note, there is a dent on the lower left of the LP jacket. 

Here's some info copied from the Punk Rock Graveyard site hope they don't mind! Eddie Subtitle aka Edwin Joesph, Mike Patton (Middle Class), and Mike Simon were the first line-up. American Society was the Subtitles first record. Eddie was a seminal member of the L.A. and Orange County punk scenes. He was the first manager of the Adolescents, and also managed the Germs. The Subtitles 1st album was “Skeletons in the closet”. It was produced by Geza X.
One of the highlights of the album was the disarmingly moving song Dave Dacron, about the late singer of the late great band Rhino 39. No Eddie Egan was and is not Eddie Subtitle.

Eddie Egan was a good friend of the band, but was more closely associated with “Social Distortion”, whos’leader Mike Ness was a neighbour of Eddie Joesph’s in Fullerton during the early ’80s.
The bands’ second album was “Dead Drunks Don’t Dance”. It was simultaneously released, on 13th-floor records, with Social D’s “mommy’s little monster”. Dead drunks don’t
dance is an amazingly misunderstood but wonderful album that parodied the drug-addled southern California music scene with enviable and merciless accuracy. The cool and very haunting cover art was done by “Art by Art” Arthur Morales who incidentally did the cover art for “mommy’s little monster.

If you have a copy of it, consider yourself very lucky. It was richly produced by Chas Rameriz at Casbah in Fullerton, which he owned at the time. He was also their bass player during this period. Max Ferguson, one of the great and sadly underrated guitar players in California at that time was also on this album. Later members of the band included Derek O'Brien from Social D.on drums and Kevin Hellon on bass.
