My memory is hazy on this matter, but I wrote a feature on the Suburbs for Creem magazine around 1986. I know that issue’s around here somewhere... Anyway, this Minnesota new-wave group—which flourished from 1977 to 1987 and then played sporadically thereafter until re-forming with a purpose in 2013—deserves much better than my absentmindedness. Their 1980 debut LP, In Combo, and 1981 follow-up, Credit in Heaven, give Devo, Pylon, and New Values–era Iggy Pop a run for their spazzy money. In 2017, the Suburbs released Hey Muse!, evidencing a slicker, more blatantly club-friendly sound—not too different from what Roxy Music did when they cut “Love Is the Drug,” or Simple Minds with New Gold Dream (81-82-83-84), or David Bowie with Let’s Dance. Know what I mean?
