The Plimsouls - Modern Rock Since 1978, New Release Beach Town Confidential and Tour

By: Christopher Levine, author of "Eclectiblogs-Weekly Meanderings for Music Head Consumption" available on paperback at Lulu.com
February 4, 2012
The Plimsouls have been around the block.  With the chart topper "A Million Miles Away" they became a household name in the 1980's, and the core members are still going strong.  Not only are they releasing a live album with never-before heard live tracks, but Peter Case and Paul Collins are taking the show on the road.

First, the album.  Beach Town Confidential, which was recorded at The Golden Bear in Huntington Beach, CA on August 13, 1983, will be out February 7th.  (And yes, fellow vinylheads there will be a version on wax too.)  16 tracks are included, and while it screams 1983-in a good way- it by no means sounds dated. Case and Collins are melding their various projects into a tour as well, including not just Plimsouls material- but stuff by The Nerves and The Breakaways, as well as material by The Beat.
