Pylon was a post-punk group out of Athens, Georgia (the same city that R.E.M. and The B-52’s were from) who released two albums during their 5 year existence. Less than a year ago New West Records reissued both Chomp and Gyrate and also released a 4-cd box set called Pylon Box. Most interesting out of the discs is the first-ever Pylon recording called the Razz Tape. This is a 13-track unreleased session that predates┬átheir 1979 debut single “Cool”. Several of these tracks later appeared in new version on their first album in 1980, including “Danger” and “The Human Body”. Gyrate is such a classic album that never receives enough attention.
