My New #1 Wanted Band: The Royal Nonesuch

These guys aren’t a punk act per se, but damn did they kick much ass. The Royal Nonesuch was a 60’s-style garage act from Springfield that played out in the mid to late 1980’s. (They were the first live band I ever saw. It was 1986-I was twelve. They were opening for Judy Tenuta. I have no explanation.) For those of you not familiar with the band, check out their music video and witness the awesomeness. I’ve got their first 45, the “Something Strange” single (pictured), but am lacking anything else. If anyone has any of their stuff, please share. I probably won’t post it here, but really, really want to hear it. Thanks.
