KILLER KUTS #10
This can go in the "weird Salsoul" category along with Megatrone Woman and the awesome Charo record. This appears to be the only Destroyers record, as far as i can tell. At only 3:56, " 'Lectric Love" is way too short. Perhaps that is why Rong did an edit of this track? It needed to be extended-- it ends before it even gets started! Musically, it sounds like disco made by a rock band. There's something about the vocals that remind me of an AM GOLD era song. Nevertheless, it is safe to say that 1977 proved to 'cosmic' year for Destroyers. Everything down to the killer moog solo and spacey vocals (and lack of a cheesy string section) make this record a classic and must own.
