Student Teachers - Christmas Weather

The short lived Student Teachers performed in New York City from 1978 to 1980, ending their career on Halloween night opening for Iggy Pop and The Cramps.  This is one of two proper releases (2 songs also appear on the compilation Marty Thau Presents 2x5).  This single is a fantastic lost artifact of early new wave, with some super catchy synthesizer hooks on both "Christmas Weather" and the non-holiday flipside "Channel 13".  Check out their website for more info, photos and some great old flyers of their days at CBGBs.  Released on ORK Records in 1979.
