Nugget of the Day - Spray Pals

Return of the Nugget of the Day (for today, at least).

Here's Spray Pals, Post-Punk/Goth from Denver, CO, circa 1982.

Nice way to start a sunny Friday. Has kind of a new wave vibe to it, were they just a local group?

The female vocal makes me think Siouxsie or early Cocteau twins, and I kinda like the way they keep that drum rhythm through the whole song.
...And it’s a tragedy they didn’t get big in the goth world with a dark, foreboding name like ‘spray pals’.

Wow! That's a band who went under my radar entirely, in that place and time.

Looks like they only did one single and a handful of shows around Denver in 82, so I imagine they were easy to miss. One of the members, vocalist/guitarist Susanne Lewis, has been in multiple bands through the years. The only one that sounds familiar to me is Kissyfur - it seems like I remember seeing Kissyfur CDs floating around in the early 90s. Lewis' bandmate in Kissyfur was Mike Belitsky of the Sadies.
