Release Details

Great single from the punk rock super group! 1st Press on black vinyl.


The first indication that the second Lords of the New Church album was going to be a very different beast than its predecessor arrived with this one-off single, the fruits of a short but shattering partnership with producer Todd Rundgren. The title track's garage pop credentials, of course, need no introduction -- the Lords, however, transform it into a widescreen, synth- and atmosphere-whipped anthem, with Bators' voice poised on the same edge of emotive breakdown that was always his most dramatic disguise. Flip it over and the B-sides are less enthralling -- as B-sides usually were in those days -- and would remain uncollected until the Killer Lords compilation came along a few years later. Live for Today, however, was brilliant enough that it didn't need B-sides. It didn't need anything. Perfection in under five minutes.
