John Hovorka: vocal, guitar; Jack Hickey: lead guitar; Dave Shibler: bass guitar; Fred Nazzaro: drums // Produced by Joe Harvard and the Turbines - recorded at For Apache, Roxbury, Mass.
"The Turbines were a drastic change in direction from Noise Pencil.  We played giant-size rock-a-billy-rock. In contrast to my earlier bands, we went on tour all over the country, and became local rock stars.  Success is relative, but in any amount it can be fun.  Or at least it's interesting.  But I guess some of us found it stressful.  We broke up in 1986." (John Hovorka)
"When the New Rose advance copies of Magic Fingers... arrived I wanted to cry out loud. Because it sounded so good. Because there'd be no chance to do another one, now that we were comfortable together, now that we had our little recipes for sounds and all. Because the band had already called it quits, and it was a real loss for Boston. Because the Turbines wouldn't get a chance to take their message to the rest of the country, the rest of the world, like they really had a right to." (Joe Harvard)

"This piece of vinyl is our second record. It was recorded on a hot pollution alert day during July in Louisville, Kentucky, and was made at a place called Artist Recording Service. We recorded 15 songs between 11:00pm and 5:00 am, half of the time spent trying to fix the wild buzz coming out of Rick's amp. We finally gave up and decided to make amp buzz the theme of the record."
