- “Sex Drive”

In another iteration of Patrick’s deep dive into first releases on well-known labels, he explores Touch & Go. It’s a classic midwestern label, founded in 1979 by Tesco Vee and Dave Stimson. In 1981, Touch & Go put out their first record, a 7″ EP by a band from Maumee, Ohio: the Necros. Only 100 copies were pressed. It remains a highly sought-after piece of punk rock history.
