EGOSLAVIA (Buy CDs by this artist)
Egoslavia EP (9½ x 16) 1981

Singer/guitarist/songwriter Gregg Strzempka led this Washington DC quartet in sub Gang of Four/Pylon stylings. Derivative, yes, but the band is instrumentally talented, the weakest link being Sally Ven-Yu Berg's drumming, which is too often a hair off the beat. Pam Lewis's vocals and rubbery slide guitar, as well as some of the band's lyrics, showed Egoslavia's potential for transcending the sway of its influences.
