Stiv Bators – Disconnected – Limited Edition, Starburst Colored Vinyl, Bomp!, 2018
LIMITED PRESSING of 300 Includes the ORIGINAL INNER SLEEVE w/ photos, credits, lyrics.
Issued after the break-up of the Dead Boys, and before his albums with the Wanderers and Lords of the New Church, this is Stiv Bators’ one and only solo album. Recorded in Los Angeles in 1978, “Disconnected” finds Stiv playing the music he loved while growing up.
Bators’ first solo album, Disconnected was recorded in Los Angeles following the breakup of the Dead Boys. It’s got more of a garage pop/Nuggets vibe than the work of the Dead Boys-he even covers the great Electric Prunes track ‘I Had Too Much Too Dream Last Night.’ But even though he professes to be an evil boy, he does it with a charm that’s pretty irresistible.” – Creem.
