My point is that you should never write off any time period, because there is bound to be a lot of hidden gems. One of my personal favorites is “You’re a Zombie” by Norm Norman. While his discography is literally just an EP from 1983, what an EP! Norman was a West Coat artist whose music was quirky and catchy. We’re talking power pop with an attitude. It’s a real shame that there is not more material because what little he did do was great. It was certainly better than half of the crap that was playing on MTV at the time. (Kids, don’t be nostalgic for MTV. Sure it was better then than now, but realistically, it still wasn’t that great. How many times did you get to see bands like Swans, the Bolshoi, or Motorhead on there versus Bon Jovi, Firehouse, or Rick Astley? Exactly.)
Unfortunately, I could not find a whole lot of information about him, but I do know this. “You’re a Zombie” is a great song that should have been a huge hit and the video? Is awesome and features famed actor Billy Barty as the insolent butler. Also keep your eyes peeled out for Safari Man and his silly dance of the constipation blues!
