The Necessaries were a band featuring Arthur Russell, Ernie Brooks (also from Modern Lovers), Jesse Chamberlain (occasional member of Red Krayola), and Chis Spedding. Two half-identical LPs were released in 1981 and 1982, both produced by Bob Blank. The three songs below are the most Russell-influenced. If only guitar music could more often sound like this.

The Necessaries – The Finish Line

The Necessaries – Driving and Talking at the Same Time
