Sometimes great bands have a rough go of it. Consider The Last, the influential Los Angeles band who rose to the top of the city's music scene - with bands like The Go-Go's opening for them - and released their critically acclaimed album L.A. Explosion! In 1979 on Bomp Records. But rather than build on that momentum, which included shows with X and Black Flag, The Last - Joe Nolte (guitar, vocals), Vitus Mataré (keyboards, flute, vocals), Joe's two brothers, Mike Nolte (harmony vocals) and David Nolte (bass) and John Frank (drums) - recorded a follow-up album that was doomed and shelved by the band. Now, the never-before-released, thought-to-be-lost-to-history album, Look Again, will finally be available 40 years after it was originally recorded.
The newly remastered album is available here on vinyl LP complete with a bonus 7" featuring two never before released songs: "Weekend Girl" and "Fade To Black."
