Song of the Day – “Head over Heels” – Tuff Darts

Forty years ago, the band Tuff Darts was at CBGB’s in New York to begin the three days of recording that would result in the seminal album Live at CBGB’s. Mink DeVille and the Shirts joined in, but Blondie and Talking Heads were actually left out.

Singer Robert Gordon would go on to a career in rockabilly, but the sound here is pure new wave.
