Executive Slacks

Today we have the 80s synthpunk band from Philadelphia called the Executive Slacks. I love the Limelight and Cat Club flyers as they look so familiar to me. I like this mix of synth, sharp guitar as effect and monotone punk vocals.

“The Executive Slacks were an industrial/goth band formed in the 1980s in Philadelphia (USA) and were fronted by lead Matt Marrello (guitar and vocals). He was replaced in 1987 by Athan Maroulis until 1991 when the band broke up. The other band members were Bobbie Rae, John Young and Stuart Levy. Their album “Fire and Ice” (1986, Cleopatra records) included an electric cover of the Gary Glitter cover “Rock and Roll”.” – Last.fm
