Billy Clone And The Same - X and Y (1979)
Billy Clone and the Same, along with The Consumers, led Arizona into the punk/new wave era in the late 70's. Bruce Connole, Damon Doiron and Mike Corte (whose untimely death from heroin ended the band) were the driving force behind the band. Connole and Doiron went on to fame in many other local Arizona bands throughout the years including The Jetzons, The Strand and The Revenants to name but a few. This 4 song ep is considered by some to be one of the best records ever released by an Arizona artist. X and Y was produced by the legendary Mike Condello. Mike Corte wrote all the songs. Released on Moon Dog Records. Instead of the customary side A and side B, the LP was labeled side X and side Y.
As an added bonus, I have included an extra song, from the 1979 LP "Arizona Sounds Volume 3 entitled "Don't Look Back". Much slower than the material on X and Y, it is still an outstanding track.
