TVD's Obscure Alternatives

It's our Thursday flashback, culled from the rare and ultra-obscure (and often bizarre) crates of 80’s vinyl, curated by our pal Gil:

Laws of Motion – Check It In The Mirror EP | A new wave band that was formed in the early 80’s around the San Diego area. This sextet was very active in Southern California’s new music scene and was tapped many times to be the opening act for out of town alternative and indie bands. They opened for Hoodoo Gurus, Broken Edge and Doll Congress to name a few. They also received local radio airplay in San Diego and were on local cable TV via KCOX.

Laws of Motion was a band that became known in the scene as a proficient group of musical experimenters who always looked for a new fresh sound and pushed the envelope of creativity. As one music reviewer put it “the band takes the flow of energy, of life, of ideas to create music for dancing – Cerebal Dancing.”

Armed with this first record, Laws of Motion embarked on their personal hunt for the elusive major label contract. The label deal would never come to fruition, but this rare EP should not go unnoticed by fans of alternative 80’s music.
