NASTYFACTS – “Drive My Car” – Record of the Day

Some years ago I spoke to Nastyfacts producer, Ramona Jan, about reissuing this record, but it didn’t end up going anywhere. It has since been booted. Ramona Jan was a founding member of another early 80’s NYC band COMATEENS. This is one of the top singles of 1981, and the 80’s in general. Strange factoid: Ramona Jan appeared on an episode of ABC’s reality show Wife Swap.

Also of note in a representational way, Nastyfacts Cherl Boyce aka “King TuffnStuff” “KB” Kali Boyce is a non binary, two spirit queer POC who wrote and performed all three of the monster hits on this perfect single.
