Back to school is just around the corner. So what better time to remind you about the Student Teachers! We only thought about ’em because of a new book out by Laura Davis, the woman drummer, 17 when she began hittin’ the skins. It was also a good excuse to go into the basement (30º cooler) and rummage through the cooler 30 or so boxes of “S” 45s. Well we found this single from 1979 and you won’t find this one illustrated in many books (wait for ours). A spin (sissies use Spotify, pathetics, Pandora) revealed the B-side the better, sure to be a Holiday classic, “X-mas Weather.” Cool weather’s coming, cool record always, have a nice weekend.
PS – Here’s the info on the single: Student Teachers. “Channel 13″/”X’mas Weather” (Ork UK Records; USA, NYC5, 7″, 45, 1979). Produced by Jimmy Destri (Blondie). B side title on label different from sleeve : “Christmas Weather.” Here’s a link to an excerpt from the book on the Flavorwire site, AND, a nice long interview with Laura at Please Kill Me.
