The Heats – I Don’t Like Your Face / Ordinary People —-Powerpop Friday

While reading about Nirvana from other Seattle musicians…this band came up in the conversations as one of the great Seattle bands. The Heats were 10 years before Nirvana but were really popular in the Seattle area.

Before Grunge, The Heats played in the Northwest. In 1980 They were the biggest band in the area. Everyone was convinced they were only going to get bigger.

“They were top dog,” said fellow Seattle musician and KJET/KNDD personality Jim Keller. “Opening for them was like opening for a major concert artist, with barricades to keep the fans back at the front of the stage. “And more than any other group, they made it cool for Seattle bands to do original songs.”

They sold thousands of copies of the records they produced themselves. They played some big shows in Seattle and opened up for The Kinks and toured around the US with Heart and The Knack.

This song was the B side to “I Don’t Like Your Face” released in 1980
