"In the '70s, Kate Fagan reveled in the energy of punk and new wave on dance floors in London and New York before drifting to Chicago, where she picked up a bass guitar and invented her own plucky minimalist sound. Her 1980 song "I Don't Wanna Be Too Cool" became a best-seller at the legendary Wax Trax! Records. This new expanded version of Captured Tracks' 2016 reissue features four unheard, ahead-of-their-time tunes slathered in precious melodies and rhythms that lean into early house music territory." - Jen B. Larson, author of Hit Girls: Women of Punk in the USA, 1975-1983
