The one-woman, 1980 UK “band” THE PETTICOATS put our their/her only 45 on the Blah Blah Blah label, and it’s a masterpiece of frantic, buzzing DIY punk. Definitely something the fell below the radar for most of us for many years; I never even heard mention of the single until a little over a decade ago, when the song “Normal” made it onto a Killed By Death comp and a bootleg called “Instant Pop Classics”. 

Later, Times New Viking covered this one, “Allergy”, and I think it’s my favorite of the three mindblowers on Stef Petticoat’s single. Share this around with yr pals – they’ll thank you for it.
