Soul Attack - "Little Lost Child"
Northern New Jersey based Soul Attack played Rock infused with elements of R.E.M. Creedence and Motown. They played live with the intensity of The Clash and in their sleeveless shirts and stylish suits looked like them as well. They gigged for an all-too brief time around their home state with occasional trips across the river into New York City and released a great four song Pop/Punk EP on their own Change Records label. "Little Lost Child" sounds like a lost Stiff Little Fingers track. Soul Attack were Chris Moffa: Guitar & Vocals, (see previous post) Ernie Mendillo: Bass & Vocals, Ed Rupprecht: Guitar & Vocals and Alan Katz: Drums & Vocals.The line up was short-lived and changes were made but Ernie and Ed went onto international fame when they morphed into the The Brandos.
