SPHEX- Time 7”. This Canadian teenage group from small-town Ontario had their own mature sound, predating punk and surpassing all older groups in the region. Recorded for a soundtrack at the Montreal National Film Board in 1976 and released in 1977, “Time” is a dynamic heavy rocker, whereas “Leaving This Crazy City” is a proto-punk surprise! Originally issued as a private press, sleeveless gold labeled 45 in a very small edition, now reissued with repro labels, deluxe picture sleeve (not fold-over), and 16 page booklet with detailed history & tons of photos. For fans of the many other little known proto-punk hard rockers of the mid-70s. Fully authorized, limited edition of only 600 copies.
