The Leftovers (Florida)
No, this is NOT the same The Leftovers from the North East, that play Ramones inspired pop/punk. This is however, the Florida ska/punk band The Leftovers, that time has seemed to forget.
I picked up this 7" of theirs titled "A Few Days Difference" at the old Far Out Records store in Fort Lauderdale, FL in 1995. Unfortunately I know nothing of what became of the band or if they had any other releases.
In this 7" you will hear high school aged members stirring up some catchy ska/punk hooks and jabs with somewhat amusing lyrics. Be forewarned that the vocals are very whiney, pre-pubescent sounding and honestly, kind of annoying. That may however be your cup of tea.
