area251 Records Seeks a Kickstart to Reissue The Clingers' 1969 Single "Gonna Have A Good Time"

The Clingers--Melody, Patsy, Peggie, and Debbie--were one of the early all-female rock 'n' roll groups. With Kim Fowley producing their cover of The Easybeats, they can also be seen as something of a proto-proto-punk predecessor of The Runaways.

Now, area251 Records wants to re-issue The Clingers' 1969 single, "Gonna Have A Good Time," on 7" vinyl, with a couple of color options. The Kickstarter campaign is straightforward: area251 Records is looking to raise enough money for licensing and manufacturing. This is a cool opportunity to bring a bit of history into the present, while bringing the spotlight to a group whose importance has not been reflected in their place in popular consciousness.
