Their 1978 debut EP, No Tears, was recorded with vocalist Winston Tong and sound engineer Tommy Tadlock. Replete with tense synth swells, devastating live drums and a psychotic ode to the "creatures of the night," the title track is a crucial entry in the synth-punk canon that stacks up next to the best work by UNITS and THE SCREAMERS. Reininger's electric violin congeals with electronic atmospherics to unnerving ends on the instrumental "Litebulb Overkill." Few records do justice to the mania and paranoia of a forsaken city; none do it for San Francisco like TUXEDOMOON's No Tears.
