Lost Classic from the Long Ryders

Given the hits this video of the Long Ryders’ “I Want You Bad” has had on Youtube, I’m not sure this is truly a “Lost” classic, but it’s still a great little compact pop song that too few people have heard.

The Long Ryders were nominally part of the Paisley Underground scene in early 80’s California, which included some other great psychedlic grage pop bands like Rain Parade, Green On Red, and The Dream Syndicate. The Long Ryders lead singer, Sid Griffin, is a 1980 graduate of the University of South Carolina, so I only missed attending college with him by a handful of years.
