Bang Shang A Lang
PAT: Pure bubblegum goodness, guarenteed to rot the teeth right out of your head. The only thing that possibly could have made this song any better is more cowbell, to quote the popular phrase...

Needle in the Camel's Eye
PAT: New Wave at it's finest...Where's my mascara?
Days of Wine and Roses
PAT: As the Eighties fell around our ankles, while the drugs got stronger, during our "Black Period", in the second movement of an aria composed of nothing but feedback, on the Barham Pass, en route to enlightenment and a decade-long hangover...I still try to remember the days of wine and roses, the days of lines and noses, the days of crime and poses, the days of blind neurosis...
Pretty Little Posion
PAT: Me, Romeo, Tristan, Cassanova and Jay Gatsby get kicked out of a bar....

"As an Ebar employee for four years (1983-87) I learned more about music from the jukebox there than I ever could've from the finest, most comprehensive music appreciation course. I must have sensed the cultural importance of the juke early on, because while I was there, I cajoled Margaret into letting me take a clutch of 45s from the machine (and a few from her reserve collection) home for the weekend in order to put 'em on cassette. It wasn't easy, as she treasured those things dearly. Nevertheless, I managed to record them, and recently to transfer them to my computer, and still more recently to send them to the Ebar site. These, then, are recordings of the actual 45s from the Ebar Jukebox, hisses, pops and ticks intact. I hope---nay, I know--they sound just as bitchin' now as they did with the added whoosh and whine of the Pasquini as sonic backdrop.

Memories can wait
pick you up after your first punk show, when up pulls a new Mercedes full of west side girls, who take you to Canters for matzo ball soup and cocaine, then to Daddy's condo for a trip to third base and more coke, only to pass out next to the hot tub and wake up three hours later without your glasses and a handful of pubic hair...
