SIGGY MAGIC AND THE HEY-HO BAND - Commercials For Free EP (1978)

Like the previous post, this was ripped (and scanned) from the Smash The State Vol. 3 LP. The original may very well be the most rare and expensive Vancouver punk 7" as only 200 copies were pressed. This EP was the soundtrack to the 1978 short film, "Commercials For Free". You can view it as a bonus feature in the special edition version of the Bloodied But Unbowed DVD. It's worth watching just to see old footage of Vancouver and an early Subhumans performance. There's one track not included from the original 7", an acoustic number called 'People Who Cheated Me'. I guess the folks who were putting together the Smash The State comp felt it wasn't punk enough to include on there. Click HERE to listen to the EP in it's entirety. Guess which DOA song the title track has a bunch of riffs stolen from!
