Cult Heroes- Amerikan Story LP. The Cult Heroes formed in 1978 playing fast and aggressive Detroit-style punk and totally lived up to their name by recording two of the better Midwest pre-hardcore punk records from that time period. The Cult Heroes were fronted by Hiawatha Bailey who many saw as the black Iggy-esque frontman who didn't have as many of Iggy's stage moves, but was definitely stronger than Iggy vocally. The band released their amazing and highly collectible debut single 'Cosmetic Elation' in 1979 including their smash hit ‘Berlin Wall.' That single was following by the ‘Amerikan Story’ 7" released in 1981. The band went in and out of the studio a number of times from 1978 - 1981, but many of their early recordings were never officially released. This very cool reissue collects the best selections of all their studio tracks recorded in the early days including 3 of the 4 tracks from those first two phenomenal singles! Italian import.
