Easy Money - Getting Lost
Here is one of my all time favorite indie records... this was the first release from Richards Records of British Columbia: Getting Lost (Hourigan) 2:56 by Easy Money. My memory tells me I picked this disc up new sometime around 1981. I think this side is just the sheep's pinata! The b side for any record keepers out there was High Fashion (Hourigan) 2:33.
British Columbia had a great do-it-yourself spirited music scene around 1977-1983 with groups like The Subhumans, The Pointed Sticks, The K-Tels/Young Canadians, The Modernettes and The Dishrags. You can find Sticks, Young Canadians and Modernettes on CD from Sudden Death Records and a various artists compilation from the Vancouver scene circa 1977-78 titled Vancouver Complication is available there too!
If anyone has any information about Easy Money to pass along I'd be curious to know more. The songwriter's name Hourigan rings a bell as having been involved with some other group before this but I can't pin it down. I may dimly recall the name Easy Money being on some photocopied posters to events I couldn't attend, but hoo nose. The only show I know I saw had NoMeansNo and a lot of really loud noisy groups who held little interest for me at the time.
Update: Check it out... Linda McRae of Easy Money is still around!
