Description
Hailing from the Cleveland blue-collar suburb of Parma, the Pawking Metahs (Bob Baniszewki, voc. and gtr ;Billy Panzram, guitar; Ricky Fish, Bass; Eddy "Power" Gein, drums) clearly belonged to the Electric Eels-Dead Boys school of punk. Their lifestyle, erratic and unhealthy to say the least, as well as a radical approach to music that never let technicalities get in the way of a bad idea, seldom got them anything but troubles in the venues where they played, including an homeric fistfight with the audience at a Pirate's Cove show. The dirt-poor-quality 1978 « little match seller » demo, found in the CBGB archives, is the only recorded document we have from the band. This stubborn and unruly celebration of addiction and pimping was to land them a gig, and flyers were even printed, but it was typical of their luck that they disbanded on arriving in N.Y, after having sold their gear to buy heroïn.

Lyrics
hey you little match seller
I know we're meant for each other
you bought your life from a thrift store
but here any loser can score

Baby baby
spit on me
cos it means you love me
baby baby
stick it in me
it means your really love me

You got bad breath and a bad skin
your torn heart holds with safety pins
but I've got a needle and spoon
and I can send you to the moon

Baby baby
spit on me
cos it means you love me
baby baby
please work for me
it means your really love me

Never Forgotten
I recently saw a special on VH1 where they interviewed Bob Baniszewki's dad and he mentioned the Pirate Cove show, and his heroin addiction. He also showed some of his amazing water color paintings that he did as a young man. No wonder he OD'd.

Downloaded for future generations.

Doze $10 Olson Microphones sure give dem a nice vocal sound.

Raw meat for the lions

buzzcocks callbacks! Fantastic.
That guitar solo sounds like a glitched out synthesizer. How'd you do that? Too cool!

Very rude
...that guitar is perfect. Probably illegal. No way to treat an expensive musical instrument but it liked it. Great bloody slap of noise - love it!
