The Burnt - Where’s My Head? (Mutha Records Mutha 027) 1985
THE BURNT were one of the earliest PUNK bands in New Jersey. Formed in 1979, they were influenced by bands such as THE RAMONES, DEAD BOYS, SHAM 69, and local bands like T.M.A.
Hailing from Midland Park (in beautiful Bergen County, NJ.), they started off playing local “bars” with Metal bands - they would pretend that they were a Metal band to get the gig - as bar owners never knew at that time “not” to have a Punk band - but quickly learned. The biggest haunt for THE BURNT - and the home of their now famous “Power Drinking” legacy, was JT’s in nearby Suffern, NY. But it didn’t take them long to hook up with The Brighton (in West Long Branch) and get noticed by Mark Chesley and MUTHA records.
In the early 1980’s, THE BURNT “Where’s My Head” LP became one of the first releases on the Mutha Label.
