The KEEPERS –In the Meantime CDR (Teenline #206)
Crystalline 60s-flavored powerpop and poprock from a band that in almost any other place at almost any other time should have been major popstars. They were pals (and a brother) of the Cavedogs from central Ohio who followed their pals to Boston at the height of the garage-rock scene. The 'Doggies made good, of course, but the Keepers' more intricate arrangements and even more hummable hooks went nowhere in Beantown. After a 7-song EP and a radio show they'd recorded in Dayton, they recorded two sessions at not-yet-legendary Fort Apache in Boston and an hour-long radio concert on the eve of their breakup. This all comes from a slightly later period [1984-87] than most of Teenline's wares, but we guarantee you'll love it. $9.00
