***LOS MiCROWAVES was a San Francisco-based synth-punk trio who formed in 1979. Their recorded output consisted of a handful of 45s and their lone LP, Life After Breakfast, released on the legendary Posh Boy records in 1981. Creating sound and music from the fusion of techno-punk, new wave pop, and electronic music, Los Microwaves featured a quirky audio theater that was best experienced live and from the dance floor. Sporting a combination of earlier portable synthesizers, bass and processed percussion, the music continues to deliver a unique groove. Life After Breakfast contains 13 songs full of teen angst, jerky rhythms, melodic chants, and punky shouts. MEG BRAZIL’s vocals are cheeky and peppy, recalling the anti-pop sound of The B-52's, Devo and early XTC. The band also sings in Spanish occasionally, making them San Francisco's first bilingual nuevo wave group.  Los Microwaves toured "coast to coast" for three years. Upon moving to New York City, Interview Magazine's Glenn O'Brien wrote that they were "possibly the greatest rock band ever." After two more national tours, the band played their last show at New York's Danceteria in March 1983. All songs have been remastered from the original reel to reel tapes for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl comes housed in the original jacket featuring iconic photo by Jack Abraham. Each LP includes a 12-page booklet with lyrics, photos, liner notes, and clippings. Also included is a full length DVD featuring a 15-song Los Microwaves concert from 1981, recorded at the I-Beam in San Francisco, as well as in interview with the band and the official music video for "Life After Breakfast." More than 30 years after its release, we can finally answer the question: yes there is there life after breakfast.
