Full Time Men “I Got Wheels” – use them, that is what they are for

I Got Wheels‘ is the latest single released to support the re-issue/compilation of the music of Full Time Men.  In the mid-to-late ’80s, Full Time Men was a part time venture of Fleshtone Keith Streng (guitar and lead vocals) that featured Gordon Spaeth (sax, harp), Robert Warren (bass, vocals), and Bill Milhizer (drums), all full time members of New York’s Fleshtones, along with Rich Thomas (lead guitar, vocals) from LESR (Lower East Side Rockers). On the new compilation of the band’s material there are special guests such as Clem Burke (Blondie), Peter Zaremba (Fleshtones), Pat DiNizio (Smithereens), Dave Faulkner (Hoodoo Gurus), Stiv Bators, Jeff Connolly, Scott McCaughey, and Peter Buck.  It’s Peter Buck’s jangling guitar that features heavily on today’s song.

The 20-track ‘Part Time Job’ (CD/Digital) set collects the band’s recorded catalogue. It features four previously unreleased songs, “We Were Using,” “Reinvented,” “Pink Cloud,” and “TOT (Toilet of Time),” plus songs from the band’s 1984 ‘Fast Is My Name’ debut EP, ‘Full Time Men’, 1988’s ‘Your Face My Fist’, and 1999’s ‘The Fabulous Sounds Of Coney Island ‎EP’. The Part Time Job 12-track LP, limited edition to 500 units and pressed on translucent emerald green vinyl, includes all three songs from the Full Time Men EP, select songs from Your Face My Fist LP, and the four previously unreleased songs, “We Were Using,” “Reinvented,” “Pink Cloud,” and “TOT (Toilet of Time).”

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
