unreleased KNOTS song

New York's Knots released their one and only 7" back in 1980. This double a-side single has become a true kbd punk classic. "Action" is a genius direct punk songs with similarities to the Dead Boys, while "Heartbreaker" on the flipside stands out with it's incredible hooks and powerpop melodies. I'm writing this, because Knots' guitarist and songwriter Joey Pinter has uploaded an old Knots song taken from the same tape they recorded their 7" and you can download it for free from SoundCloud. "Glad To Be Alive" is a slower sleaze rock influenced tune comparable with The Heartbreakers and New York Dolls. Don't miss it! (Listen to it and download it here)
