Chris Moffa & The Competition - "Places To Live"
Chris Moffa of New Jersey's Chris Moffa & The Competition referred to his band's music as "Contact Music" which in his words meant "music brought about by a real need to express some serious social issues". They were compared to the Clash (though he didn't completely agree) and the song "Places To Live" is filled with Clash style references to rap/rock/disco and politics. The band's music had punk and pop/rock influences as well. They toured up and down the east coast in support of an ep from which this track comes but soon split up when Chris joined Soul Attack (soon to be featured here).Chris Moffa & The Competition were Chris Moffa - guitar and vocals, Jim Ohm - drums, and John Lewis - bass, although Frank Roselli played bass on this track.
