Painkillers never got its due. Back in the '80s, the St. Louis band was recording the kind of purposeful pop that evolved from the likes of Big Star. Euclid Records' Joe Schwab was a fan then, and he's still a fan today -- that's part of the reason he's re-releasing the band's original cassette on CD, along with thirteen unreleased tracks. The surviving members of the band will be playing a reunion show tonight at Off Broadway. Below, listen to two Painkillers songs from the reissue, and read our interview with Schwab.
