This Canadian teenage group from small-town Ontario had their own mature sound, predating punk and surpassing all older groups in the region. Recorded for a soundtrack at the Montreal National Film Board in 1976 and released nearly two years later, "Time" is a dynamic heavy rocker, whereas "Leaving This Crazy City" is a proto-punk surprise! Originally issued as a sleeveless gold labelled 45 in a very small edition, now reissued with repro labels, deluxe picture sleeve (not fold-over), and 16 page booklet with detailed history & tons of photos. For fans of the many other little known proto-punk hard rockers of the mid-70s. Fully authorized, limited edition of only 600 copies.

The Sphex 45 is an absolute treat for collectors of proto-punk and rare Canadiana, a high quality reissue that adds yet another missing link into the history of pre-punk groups over the North American continent.
