This was recorded shortly after The Dead Boys broke up and certainly shares the same energy of Cheetah’s previous work. There’s a slow, cynical and sinister sound to the B-Side “Take Me Home, whereas the A-Side “Still Wanna Die” is all about fast-paced nihilism and self-destruction. Everybody knows about Dead Boys, but this 7 inch has too often been passed over for the more popular stuff. Give these tracks a listen and lets hope that they are remembered as an important part of 1970s Ohio punk rock history.
Luckily Cheetah didn’t end up a rock and roll casualty and still records music to this day. Look for more on him in the near future from Rust Belt Hammer.
