"Drag City resurrects the fantastic  sound of THE FEMS. To do so, they had to  travel back to the year 1982, when this  single was pressed in some insignificant amount by the band  and spread around the country, one copy at a time. The Fems  represented early American hardcore punk at a time when  speed wasnt necessary in order to punk out and the intersection of angst and humor was a common crossroads for aspirant  songwriters. Hence, the barbed humor of "Go To A Party" and  "Is It Living?," alongside the primal screaming of "Order." The  Fems were a legend in their hometown of Buffalo, presiding  over energy-charged crowds with loads of sarcastic banter and  making themselves a party favorite in the wide-open early 80s.  Their 7-inch EP Go To A Party was recorded with the vocals,  drums and bass closest to the mic and the guitar somewhere in  the next room-but the low, rumbling sound that resulted is a  unique vision from early punk days. For frustrated collectors, its a must-have-but not too many copies have been pressed,  as part of our effort to duplicate the original release in every  way." - Drag City.
