Intuiting what so many of their contemporaries did not, i.e. that VAN
HALEN and KISS had a lot more to do with a workable post-RASPBERRIES pop
aesthetic than ten closets-full of skinny ties, Washington D.C.’s LAZY
sound like a lost Starwood demo tape or Sunset Strip street band in the
vein of CANDY, MICKEY RAT or even MOTLEY CRUE at their earliest and
poppiest. On both sides of their lone 1980 single, LAZY also fit the
description of power pop as outlined by Greg Shaw in the pages of BOMP!
Magazine nearly perfectly as well: naively flirting with the style in
such a casual and shamelessly commercial fashion that – despite stiffing
upon release – still sounds fresh and dynamic today. Starting out with a
setlist chock-full of AC/DC and STATUS QUO, it wasn’t long before these
future Hyattsville keg-kings put down two of their best tracks at
D.C.’s Track Studios. While the single’s a-side, ‘Rock N Roller,’ picked
up for airplay by local radio station WHFS, is a pure satin jacket ‘n’
silk scarf delight, the b-side, ‘Am I Dreaming,’ is to be slept on at
your own expense (dig that backward-tracked cymbal – told you these
dudes were heavy!). Without the commercial breakthrough the band needed,
the members of LAZY would retool and later resurface as AR-15.
