Vitapup- Syphilis

Soph year of high school, early 1995 or so, this was the first underground/punk-ish song that really grabbed me. I heard it on WPRB Princeton... (maybe "Hey You Kids Get Off My Lawn"?) and it led to me repeatedly calling in to request it with my cassette deck ready trying to tape it off the radio. While more off-kilter, this Vitapup track was my gateway drug to the glory of NJHC. Within a few months I was in basements and the Manville Elks seeing xBoundx, Shades Apart and Ensign. Finally found this 7" years later at Generation in NYC.
