Eschewing everything but the pursuit of fun, Athens, GA's B-'52s burst onto the New Wave scene in 1979. Their mix of '50s/'60s kitsch and pure pop instincts produced some classic campy tunes ("Rock Lobster", "Private Idaho"). The band's popularity hit new peaks a decade later with the release of COSMIC THING and the huge hits "Love Shack", "Roam", and "Deadbeat Club", showing how fully the group had penetrated the pop-culture landscape.

Good find, I love the B52's.:thumbsup:

A great price for these CD's. Odd combo though... Plant Claire is a compilation so some of the tracks are repeated on the other two.
Good fun tunes!
Even after 20 years I still like their music. :thumbsup:

Yeah, weird that this includes that comp. Mesopotamia and Whammy! are great albums, but the self-titled debut is still the best one.
