The Speedies Speed To The Rescue Of HP!
Obscure but great 70s NY power pop/glam/punk band The Speedies scored a major victory in their 25 year battle to break into the national consciousness. Hewlett Packard is featuring their single "Let Me Take Your Foto" in a national tv ad campaign. Who would have thought? It's like winning the lottery while lighting hits you. Then again, who ever thought The Ramones' music would one day be used in commercials.
There's a Speedies revival on the way and I'll be there cash in hand. Their two singles are out of this world great.
No word yet if Speedy Alka-Seltzer will rejoin the band. They say he fizzled out in 1982.
