That saying has been attached to The Embarrassment for some time. The band formed in Wichita, KS in the late seventies and carried on well into the eighties. They even were courted by the earliest formation of Sub Pop Records. Almost everything in their catalog is out-of-print including the Bar-None anthology Heyday. But why am I telling you this? Because the best band you've never heard of is reuniting for 3 shows only. Two in Wichita and one here in beautiful Lawrence, KS. So if you can, don't pass up the opportunity to see them August 20th at Liberty Hall.
Here are my favorite two Embarrassment tunes -
"Patio Set" (1979) [B-Side to their first single "Sex Drive"]
"Lifespan" (1981) [Sub/Pop #5 cassette]
(MP3Pro Format Encoded)
