WE'RE NOT THRU W/ BERKELEY YET! - THE BAND IS 'EARTHQUAKE' THE ALBUM IS "8.5"....THE HORROR!

Really cool 70's band from Berkeley- after a couple of records for A&M they went on to form their own label and released a few more albums including this one from 1976. Some more notes below, best way to describe their music would be power-pop or rock n roll garage maybe, two guitar format with nice trading off of riffs and.....The Horror!! 7daylink vinyl rip of above w pics/notes
Earth Quake started out as part of the mid-'60s band scene in San Francisco, where - originally known as Purple Earthquake -- they were more than a little bit unusual. 

Having recorded a pair of early-1970s albums for A&M, 1976's Kaufman and Glen Kolotkin produced "8.5" was the group's sophomore release for Beserkley.  The album gets off to a roaring start with the heavy metal 'Finders Keepers'. 

Powered by Doukas voice, most of the up tempo tracks are actually pretty good. "8.5" is not a bad record and the single "Hit the Floor" would have sounded good on the radio, if only it had been given a chance. Also, the Dennis Linde cover is quite nice. - Rockasteria blog
