The Hawaiian Pups: Split Second Precision (1983)
The Hawaiian Pups were a kind of unknown band, unless you listened to college radio or the good old CFNY, when it was a truly great and ground-breaking radio station. The band was best known for the track Baby Judy. Others will remember Spook Opera from the year before. Split Second Precision is an EP that contains only 6 tracks, with Baby Judy appearing twice, once in extended form. The extended mix of Baby Judy was collected on volume three of Hardest Hits, which I have on CD (I have all of the Hardest Hits CDs). By the way, I was stunned to see the prices of the Hardest Hits CD compilations. Volume One is listed on Discogs for $45 to $145. That's amazing and rather perplexing.
Anyway, I really liked this band, but they only released one single and then this EP. That's too bad. This fan video is pretty good!
