Violent Femmes – Blister In The Sun (1983)‬

YouTube – AmazoniTunes – Discogs

Violent Femmes were street corner artists from Milwaukee. The story goes that Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders asked them to open one of their gigs after seeing them busking. At the very start of their self-titled debut in 1983, they converted that street energy into one of the great forerunners of the alternative rock anthem – ‘Blister in the Sun’.
