THE GREAT UNRELEASED 45 FROM THE SYRACUSE PENETRATORS! IN 1981, FRED RECORDS WERE SET TO RELEASE THEIR 4TH SINGLE, BUT DECIDED TO SPEND THE PRESSING MONEY ON MAKING A VIDEO. WHAT WAS CREATED WAS NOTHING SHORT OF GENIUS. FEATURING SPIKE PENETRATOR AS A GROCERY STORE BAGGER, CURTIS SEALS AND GILLIAN LOSA AS JUDGES FOR "THE GONG SHOW", THIS LOW BUDGET SHOT-IN-THE-BASEMENT VIDEO WAS RECORDED, EDITED, AND SUBMITTED TO THE NEW ON AIR BROADCAST KNOWN AS MUSIC TELEVISION. THE STUDIO RECEIVED THE VHS, BUT RETURNED IT WITH A FORMAL LETTER STATING "THE MUSIC INDUSTRY EXPERTS...CHOSE SIX OTHER CLIPS"... THE SONG NEVER MADE IT TO VINYL [*ON FRED RECORDS - MGMT], AND THE LABEL WOULD PUT OUT ONLY ONE MORE RELEASE BEFORE STOPPING PRODUCTION. BUT NOW FOR THE FIRST TIME, YOU CAN OWN THESE 2 SONGS ON THEIR INTENDED FORMAT AT 45 RPM!
