The Neighbothoods

Originally a Boston power-pop group with a regional hit on the Ace of Hearts label in 1980, The Neighborhoods and vocalist David Minehan toned down the bright melodies and added more energy to become, well, a rock & roll band. Their first release, the 1984 mini-LP “Fire Is Coming” was followed by a full record for Restless in 1986, “…the high hard one….” After 1987’s “Reptile Men,” the Neighborhoods were silent until 1990, when the group again released two albums in two years, “Hoodwinked” and a self-titled effort.

Please enjoy this video clip of The Neighborhoods performing “Prettiest Girl” and “No Place Like Home” in 1979.
