Taking another small step out of its unmarked grave, the Embarrassment will reissue a 7-inch of its 1980 single, Sex Drive, within the next month. The American punk reissue label Last Laugh Records will do the pressing. The B-side will be the original “Patio Set.” “We are trying to include the original cover ‘sketch’ and a promo poster that revealed more of the cover photo,” the band wrote on its Facebook page yesterday.

With most of its sophisticated, self-described “blister pop” songs stuck on hard drives, YouTube or some KJHK vault, this provides a chance to hear a great Wichita band that was once cited by REM as an influence. If you haven't yet, discovering them is like finding a missing link in the evolution of underground rock. Some nights, if you listen closely at the Replay, you can still hear the bartenders singing faintly to Embarrassment tracks in the background: “I’m going on a sex drive!”
