Formed in Boston in the late 70s out of the ashes of the legendary DMZ, Lyres are one of the truly essential garage bands and the seven 45s contained in this box set clearly prove why. Featuring 16 tracks spanning from 1979 to 1991, theyre loaded with sound, attitude and a way of making music not found around too often. Included is their never-released first acetate, recorded live and self-pressed only two weeks after the bands first rehearsal. Their amazing debut 7″ on Sounds Interesting Records is presented in facsimile artwork, as are a string of magnificent tracks the band recorded during the 1980s for Bostons Ace of Hearts Records, run by Rick Harte, who also produced the recordings. Among them, titles such as Buried Alive, Help You Ann, I Really Want You Right Now, She Pays The Rent, Not Looking Back and other staples of the 1980s rock & roll scene that show the band (and its varying line-ups) at the top of their game.
