Story

You'd think by now I'd have run out of one-hit-wonders, but alas! I have not...although I am starting to take a few liberties with the categorization. For instance, L.A. rockers The Plimsouls fit right in with the '80s post-punk American guitar band movement, especially with charismatic singer/songwriter Peter Case at the helm. They were faves on the local airwaves with their only real hit single "A Million Miles Away", thanks in part to being included on the Valley Girl soundtrack (which was far better than the flick itself). Hitting #1 must've seemed like a million miles away, but the song did reach #11 on the mainstream rock chart so that merits their inclusion in my totally tubular OHWW collection...
