SHRAPNEL (Buy CDs by this artist)
Shrapnel EP (Elektra) 1984

One of the lesser lights of New York's new wave club scene, Shrapnel was a young quintet of pop-conscious metal-heads who began playing out around 1977 and clung on long enough to make this five-song 12-inch, distinguished mainly for an entertaining cover of Gary Glitter's "Didn't Know I Loved You" (Till I Saw You Rock-n-Roll)" and a pair of tracks nicely produced by sometime Psychedelic Fur Vince Ely. The most notable thing about Shrapnel, however, was the subsequent career of guitarist Daniel Rey as a producer and player with the Ramones, Manitoba's Wild Kingdom and Masters of Reality.
