The Fents, First EP, 1979 Rad Records RR001, Strive to be twisted

I entered Occidental College as a freshman in 1979, the same year as Barack Obama. I never met Obama, which is surprising since Oxy isn't that large a school, but I did get to meet Adam Holzman and Ted Hall of the Fents who were also at Oxy at the same time. They played at Oxy a few times, but the highlight for me was seeing them burn up the stage at a local club with Kittyhawk. This is their first recording that I'm aware of and my favorite. A very nice fusion recording, with a little bit of Canterbury influence. One of the best of the era.
