Sound Of Memphis '78

Sound Of Memphis '78

7" $7.50

SCR 010 


Recorded by ALEX CHILTON and SAM THE SHAM in one three-hour blast in the summer of ‘78, Sounds of Memphis is the first archival KLITZ release. Widely regarded as Memphis’ first punk band and championed by JIM DICKINSON, The Klitz featured GAIL ELISE CLIFTON (vocals), LESA ALDRIDGE (of BIG STAR’s Third fame on guitar), AMY GASSNER (bass) and MARCIA CLIFTON (drums). The Klitz existed from ‘78 to ‘80. They fizzled out after Lesa left Memphis and moved to New Jersey. They never released any material during their initial lifespan. This is the group’s first archival release. It’s what you’d expect: lo-fi and raw. 

“The Klitz were Memphis punk ground zero.”—Ross Johnson

Limited one-time pressing of 500 copies. Never to be repressed.
