LAST FOUR (4) DIGITS - Big Picture EP 1980

Pretty nice punkrock with keys by the Last Four (4) Digits from Indianapolis, who released this great EP in 1980 on Hardly Music Records. I can't find any info about the band so I use Joe Stumble's liner notes from his Last Days Of Man On Earth blog: "The Last Four (4) Digits morphed out of a late ’70s punk band entitled Joint Chiefs of Staff and broke up shortly after the release of this EP. Practitioners of self-coined “abstract commercialism”, they reunited in 1982 as Last Four (5) Digits and had a moderately successful string of shows on the East Coast. The best songs on this EP are the most overtly-experimental, namely Coughing Up Blood and City Streets. Another Sex Crime is very reminiscent to me of Eno-era Roxy Music and Fast Friends is probably the least interesting track. All in all, this is a solid release and yet another reminder that you don’t need to live in the “centre of the universe” to create challenging and entertaining art. This is probably even more true today than it was in 1980." So what I think, with "Fast Friends" & "City Streets" are two damn cool tracks on it. Pretty synth punk record.
