The Next - Make It Quick 7" (Cheap Rewards)


"The Next formed in early 1978 after seeing the Sex Pistols play their home town of San Antonio. They soon moved to Austin and became one of only a handful of punk groups in the area, helping to jump start a scene that would later be one of the most recognized in the country.

The Make It Quick EP was released in short supply in 1979 and touted some of the fiercest tunes of the era including the classic "Cheap Rewards," which provided the namesake of this here label. Few realize the song wasn't originally intended for the EP. After dusting off some old 1/4" reel tapes we discovered not only an unreleased and forgotten song titled "Stupid Girls," but also a live radio appearance where the band discusses their upcoming EP with "Mr. Wonderful," "Monotony" and "Stupid Girls." Cheap Rewards is not mentioned. We've provided digital versions of these lost recordings on our Bandcamp page and in the player above.

We've made two distinct sleeves for this release. 400 will include the photo from the original foldout cover. 100 will have an alternate and previously unpublished photo of the band. The covers were rubber stamped by original Next members Ty Gavin and Arthur Hays as they did 35 years ago when the record was first released, so each one is completely unique." - CHEAP REWARDS
