Ice Cream and Pool Halls....
Don't know much at all about The Dragsters. I believe they were from Greenock and released three cracking singles in the mid 80's, of which I'm Not An American is the most well known. This was another one I came across the other night when sorting out some old 7" singles and it still sounds pretty good, if very much of it's time. Not too dissimilar to the likes of The Shop Assistants, The Pastels et al. It comes in a hand made sleeve that the band themselves probably had to fold that features black and white images of America over the last century or so that were all name checked in the track including Star Wars, Bonnie and Clyde, drive ins and the Silver Surfer.
