ZIPPERS (Buy CDs by this artist)
The Zippers EP (Rhino) 1981

Ray Manzarek produced this six-song mini-album for LA's Zippers, a longstanding punk outfit with strong pop tendencies. Although once strictly a tough club band, the tracks here expose a mature, musical quartet with songs and skills aplenty; the mood runs hot and cold. A neat record, but deduct points for swiping the Small Faces' "What'cha Gonna Do About It" for an "original," "I'm in Love."
