To start things off here at The Mythic Signifier, I am posting one of my favorite 7" singles by Unrest, the "flagship band" (quoth AMG) of Arlington VA's Teenbeat Records. I'm including all four tracks from Bavarian Mods and Other Hits, including "She Is Today," even though it only consists of the sound of the record player needle being jostled and then about three minutes of silence. Still, to really appreciate the final track "Nova Scotia" you need to weather your way through that silence--on my turntable at least the last track is beyond the point where the auto-return function kicks in, so you really do have to listen to the silence to get to the last song.
Bavarian Mods and Other Hits was released in 1992 on Teenbeat and Homestead Records, and is Teenbeat #84 and Homestead #184. The band at that point consisted of Mark Robinson, Phil Krauth, and Bridget Cross. The song "Bavarian Mods"--one of the gems of the Unrest discography--was later remastered and reissued on the CD compilation BPM [1991-1994], which I strongly recommend purchasing. The rest of the single, including the band's epic rendition of Argent's "God Gave Rock'n'Roll To You" (which was subsequently covered by Kiss as "God Gave Rock'n'Roll To You II," thus the suffix "III" on this version), has never been issued on CD. [Correction: The Argent cover actually did come out on the Dutch East India Company comp Buy This Used Compact Disc. Thanks to Ned for the info!] Enjoy.
