Billy Synth

From a 1980 Sordide Sentimental 7", comes Billy Synth's beautifully inept "Hartzdale Drive Destruction" featuring a one note bass line, oscilating synth, and confused and meandering shouted vocals. Over the years Billy Synth has led other bands such as The Turn-ups and The Windowpaynes.

Like Mike Rep, one of those "old" guys that is more important than anyone really knows.

Oh. My. Gawd. This is the most wonderful song I have heard in a long time. I must leave now and obsess over finding a copy of it.

Hello everyone & thanks for the cool comments! Really, this recording was done just as a fun & very off the wall session with the Half-Japs. NO "rehersals", & NO "practice", we just got to their home & then it was 1, 2, 3...START! I NEVER PLAY THIS RECORD! It is too silly for Billy!! AND, I actually got PAID REAL MONEY for this! Well, I guess you people who liked this noise might not appreciate all of the GOOD stuff I recorded with Blue Ice,The Janitors,The Turn Ups,My solo,"State Of Confusion/Music Is Forever" EP,The Windowpaynes,+ many CDs of me as Starboy!
