Teenage ZombieI’ve never seen the film myself, and may never bother, but the soundtrack to I Was A Teenage Zombie showed up at my doorstep (because I bought it on Discogs) and it brought me back to some of my favorite indie-rock bands from the 1980s in a big way.  Share a celebration of the golden age of indie-rock with me, The Rock’N’Roll Nurse, on this nostalgia-filled episode of The Geek EmaNation show.  Thirty years rolls by in a flash, fellow music geeks!
