GRADY HA HA - How To Serve A Garden Salad




Back from their recent jaunt across the midwest,playing a string of gigs,to enthusiastic audiences,here's their newest release! Of course there's a Kiss cover,and 4 more of their trademarked "burger-core" melodies!A band to watch in the future,they plan on releasing a slew of material ,before embarking on a European tour,later this year.Sent in by K9Styl ,bassist of the band,for me to post!On sale through the usual outlets,sometime in June,on Goobley Records!

CAT MACHINE - Power Trio



Around this time ,in Cat Machine's history,Tony and Myopia had just finished up their string of gigs at Visions,and Tony was in the pokey for a month or two.So Ed,Joel,and Chipmonk ,carried on as usual ,this is live to boombox,with great sound! Once again,as with "New Thing" ,a few tapes back ,this is kinda the germination of the splinter band ,One Fell Swoop.New versions of ,"Peddler of Pencils" (2x) ,"Land Of Faraway" ,and "Slim Jim Blues" ,as well as a bunch of awe-inspiring experimental stuff,that will blow your doors off!There's only about a half dozen tapes left in this series! All 4-track studio stuff,(with the noticibly missing Tony,on about half of the tapes)except the last tape,which is a rehearsal for a gig that fell thru, at Serena's ,a shitty rock club in shitty Cape Coral. So stay tuned for the rest of this tape series,scattered thru the next coupla months,sporadically,posting on the original release dates,20 years to the date! This was recorded on May 28th,1991.

HOMOSTUPIDS - The Whole World Is Homostupids!



For those who have not yet heard this band from the Clevo scene, pull your coat to this! A kind of cross of ,psych/garage/space/lo-fi/shitgaze/noise/tardcore , melded into a new music!
Looks like some choice cuts from almost every release,and a recent live set blended into the mix!I did the art for the cover of this,and the poster is from "HorribleFest-2011" ,which was a few weeks ago,and also featured Bake McBride (Food ,Poopy ,Scoops,and others performing Sockeye,Boy In Love,and Toughskins songs) ,and Cauliflower Ass & Bob (Food,again!),and what looks to have been a great goddamn line-up of groups,and a fun time was had by all in attendance.But back to what I was talkin about before , Homostupids are fuckin great! Support these guys and give'em your money!And definitely catch them live! Not homos!

CAT MACHINE - Dude! ,That's Penis! a/k/a Live At Gramps's -May 1991



A short rehearsal of 4 tunes,(each member sings one) , opening for Myopia ,on this tape,(Myopia's set is here: http://sluggisha.blogspot.com/2008/11/m-y-o-p-i.html ),as well as live.One of the few tapes with a real drum set,as we usually resorted to drum machines,and other more primitive percussion. I don't know if I ever went into the meaning of the title, so,here goes: Ashey moved between Massachussetts and Florida a few times.Once ,upon his return,he was using the phrase ,"Dude! ,that's penis!" ,which he said meant ,"cool" ,up in MA. We just rolled about,and laughed,and used it for a tape title,which was the usual progression of a catchphrase,at least in Cat Machine's world.

LADY GAGA COVERED IN JISM




This is a palette of diverse artists,ranging from Cartman (of South Park fame),to Richard Cheese,to more contemporary artists like Katy Perry,Hayley Williams(of the band Paramore), and Chris Daughtry ,as well as screamo,acoustic,instrumental ,disco,and other styles of artists,all covering the songs of Lady Gaga.The artwork is from the October 2010 edition(#31) of Retard Riot (300 copies) art zine.(check out http://retardriot.com/ ) I know there's a ton more cover versions out there,this is just a comp. of a few comps,plus a bunch of bonus tracks I found here and there.Even if you don't like her,you gotta hear Cartman and Richard Cheese at least!Can't deny the cultural impact,with so many covers! Weird Al Yankovic ,also has a cover coming out on his new album.You can hear it here: http://youtu.be/fUxXKfQkswE

CAT MACHINE - Fag Bar -Rehearsals For Visions Gig -May 1991



A full rehearsal of the entire set list ,give or take a coupla numbers.All 4 boys,Ed,Joel,Tony,and Chipmonk ,are in prime form,on this practice session.Only one gig at Visions,and we were done with that establishment,as the owners said we were too loud.As the title reveals,we played at a gay bar,on their grand opening ,in fact.No live tapes from gigs have ever surfaced,so this is as live as it gets,along with the other rehearsal tapes.Of course Cat Machine opened for the great Myopia,who was Tony,Billy and Shane.Myopia played a small string of dates,at Visions.

AWAY FROM THE PULSEBEAT -Compilation 7"

Include free with an issue of Away From The Pulsebeat Magazine,I've never come across the Redd Kross track on here,anywhere else,and seeing how Stevie Nicks is making the comeback with a new album,I figured this would be fitting..Pretty decent alt-rock.
CLICK HERE:http://www.mediafire.com/?jtqhbrwu0xj4mlf

BUTTHEAD - Volume e.p.

Probably recorded slightly before Beavis & Butthead gained momentum,the lead track is set to one of those novelty talking keychains.On Heat Blast Records,out of N.J.,home of weirdness.Sounds kinda like Couch Flambeau,but nowhere near as smart.(Or weird).Although the Black Sabbath parody front cover is funny!

THE GINGERBREAD MEN

They don't really sound like them,but I kinda get that Robyn Hitchcock & The Egyptians/Soft Boys ,vibe from these guys.Weird little band,quirky punk.

CATERWAUL OF SOUND - Stabby Road

A new band with their debut,sent to me by the bassist,Rico Vanian.And the Damned comparisons don't end there! I think these fellas sound like old school UK punk,specifically The Damned.They cover : Hole,The Ronettes,and also do an update on "Old Mac Donald" ,and "Movin' On Up",a/k/a  " Theme From The Jeffersons", just to point out that they have a sense of humor as well.And that is easily discovered by looking at the Beatles album cover parody!Good luck guys,hope to hear more from you soon!

STIGMATA - Strength In Hate

The debut single from this New York hardcore thrash unit,1990.Strange that they would record in California,I would think the true scenesters would have razzed them for doing that!Pretty good to slamdance to,and do the dishes!
CLICK HERE: http://archive.org/download/Stigmata-StrengthInHate/796Stigmata.zip

SURGEON GENERAL - Think About It

New Jersey thrashers,on Headache Records,1992.Fairly decent tunes,a couple of the guys look like they may be pushing 60 nowadays."Jodie Foster" ,leads this off with a sample of Travis Bickle .
CLICK HERE:http://www.mediafire.com/?559u5679uarnu2j

ULTIMATE WARNING - Times

German thrash metal punks,with sufficient chops,and semi-english vocals.5 songs of so-so quality.

WHOPPING BIG NAUGHTY

I read somewhere that these guys,from Australia,sounded like The Birthday Party. I don't hear it,maybe you will.Somehow they put this out on Am-Rep in 1993,on white vinyl!

SCHWAH

"I Love Bill Murray" ,is side A of this 7",and who doesn't? Bill Murray is better than this band.In researching this single,I found someone selling it for nearly $20.00! Believe me,it's not worth it! I got mine from the 99 cent bin!Ohio,1992

SAL MINEO -Sal Sings

Sal Mineo,co-star of "Rebel Without A Cause",and a Planet Of The Apes film,and some other stuff,takes a stab at rock n' roll here.Sounding like a second rate Ricky Nelson,this is 4 songs from 1958.

A TRIBUTE TO JOHNNY THUNDERS

4 bands,M99,Mule,Napalm Beach,and Rancid Vat ,all turn in decent performances on this double ,blue and pink vinyl ,7 inch.As an extra added bonus ,Whoreshack,The Jackie Earle Haleys,and One Fell Swoop ,3 Sluggisha bands,also do Johnny proud.His solo work,as well as The New York Dolls,and The Heartbreakers,are all covered to the best of the band's abilities.Been wanting to put this up for a while,got it from Samskull at the great Offbeat record store,he once owned,now sadly closed,this 7" was in the glass case at the counter,don't know why,but I asked to see it,and promptly shelled out some clams.

ANTISEEN - It Looks Good For Them To Care b/w Fuck All Y'all

A coupla my favorite tunes ,on this early single.These fellas are downright anti-establishment,worked with GG Allin,and I think one of the guys in this band,said he wouldn't cut his hair until the band broke up!If you never heard ANTISEEN,this is a good starting point.Great artwork by the Pizz.Punk rock from North Carolina,USA.

THE DEL LAGUNAS - Time Tunnel b/w Shadow

2 fine ,authentic sounding,original,surf instrumentals,from this group.Great stuff,but for my money ,I'll take the track on the "Haunted House Party" split (found elsewhere on this blog).Grab your sticks,and head for the beach!
CLICK HERE:http://www.mediafire.com/?5wwlymjq61lc5ui

WAT TYLER - I Wanna Be Billie Joe

Fuckin' weird UK band,the last track is an accapella number,which sounds like a drunken fat yob!Green Day blows,and these guys made fun of them before anyone really realized how much they blew.5 tracks of pure unadulterated foolishness.With no Green Day songs,whatsoever!
CLICK HERE:http://www.mediafire.com/?zl230gey90tux39

FOREIGN LEGION - Surf City e.p.

Despite the art and e.p. title,this is not a surf band! These guys are from the UK ,and sound kinda thrashy,kinda hard rock,with a punk touch. From the 99 cent bin,the pic of the band ,on the back,tells the whole story.Ugh.

BLACK METAL CULT - 10



Hans Gudengast ,of the band Tyrantyr,in Germany ,bestows upon us his 10th volume of kvlt black metal hits.A great compilation,as usual ,for you to worship on.Great with coffee and donuts in the morning! 17 bands from around this doomed planet ,give you the news! I'll try something new this time,by putting up the track list,fishing for extra black metal fans to download this fantastic series!

THE HUNTINGTON CADS - 5...4...3...2...1...Cads Are Go! -7"



The break-up of the phenomenal ,"Finks" (See next post) ,led the way to this rip-off of Man or Astroman,and the kids puppet series of the 60's ,Thunderbirds Are Go.The Finks I can get behind,but this is just not up to that level of surf music greatness.All original instrumentals,a little too mellow for this surfer.Even the residents of outer space would flee this sound!

http://www.mediafire.com/?5syb4z6pwbncbsb

THE FINKS - Dirty Rotten Finks 7"



Authentic,period-sound ,from these surf-revivalists.All original instrumentals,which sound like the classics.Half this band left to form The Huntington Cads" (see post above this) ,delving into a more Man Or Astroman ,sound.I prefer this.

PROPAGANDHI - How To Clean A Couple O' Things



Firey,political pop-punk,2 songs ,"Pigs Will Pay" b/w "Stick The Flag Up Your Ass" ,that will get the pit going!The funniest thing here,is that the band took a NOFX single sleeve,and pasted and scribbled all over the top of it! Makes Green Day,and others of their ilk,look like the wimpy pussies ,we always knew they were!

AVON CALLING - The Bristol Compilation



Noteworthy for being the first release on Heartbeat Records,back in 1979,this album is full of quirky,poppy ,strangeness ,as well as straight forward punk and oi music.Very post-punk stuff which has aged well.Sounds fresh today,and it grows on you.There is something in the water in Bristol,cuz all these groups have a unique,yet unified sound. Bonus:great inserts of upcoming releases!

PIA ZADORA - Let's Dance Tonight b/w Real Love 12" single













Terrible singer,and songs ,from the soundtrack of ,"Rock Aliens",a terrible movie,which almost harkens back to Pia's first film appearance in ,"Santa Claus Conquers The Martians".There is a wealth of great nude Pia shots ,that I compiled,in the zip file,which should be the only reason you download this,not for the crappy music! And check out that freaky vinyl! Produced by Jack White!(not that one!)

JACKIE KANNON - Songs For The John



A slew of funny little songs ,mostly about bathroom functions,but also featuring tunes about other risque subjects.Funny for the time it came out,adult comedy,a few things on here would be considered very unpolitically correct,by today's standards.

CAT MACHINE - New Thing



This is Ed,Joel,and Chipmonk,No Tony,on the 4-track scene. The first 2 tracks are Ed solo,celebrating Sluggisha(samples from Top Cat cartoons),and the upcoming gig at Visions nightclub.Then each of the trio sings a song apiece,(lyrics from the Amok catalog),and it ends off with a piece featuring the voice of Langston Hughes!This is kinda the beginning of the band which formed after the Cat Machine broke up,One Fell Swoop.

THE OSMOND BROTHERS - My Mom b/w Mister Sandman



"My Mom" was co-written and produced by Terry Melcher,infamous for his dealings with Charles Manson and the Family.He was also in a band with Bruce Johnston,who later joined the Beach Boys,which is what this record sounds like.The flip is The Osmond Brothers covering the Andrews Sisters ,with what was probably the Osmond's mom's favorite song.Also has a Beach Boys sound to it.Happy Mother's Day ,you Mothers!

CAT MACHINE - Cat Haus (Rehearsal For SW Florida Juvenile Detention Center -5/4/1991



Joel & Tony's dad is a preacher.He got us our first gig ever,at the juvenile detention center in east Ft Myers,Florida(pictured above!). We played for a room full of around 25 or so,a couple of kids loved us,but the most of the racially diverse youth there,despised us.We were loud ,obnoxious,annoying,yeah,you get it,we were being ourselves,Cat Machine! This is a practice session for that gig.Only a handful of songs here,we did a full set at the center.It was a blast!Too bad we have no audio or video of the show,now that would be priceless!Bonus track at end is filled with riffs,and chatter amongst the band and others!

WGOD #13 -GODCAST 6/2/1992







One of the earliest WGOD radio tapes I could find in the vault( there may be earlier ones,I think I saw #6 down there!),I used to make these as mix tapes for friends,and I gave away a ton of them,and never made copies of them,so if you have one,it's the only one of it's kind.Don't get the wrong idea about the call letters,I have nothing to do with church,christ,religion,or any of that shit,I chose the name GOD because I play the best tunes,the "god"head of music!(and also so the people of the world would no longer have to worship "false" gods!) On here I play classic punk stuff as well as what was then current alternative and punk music,wih some dub and rap mixed in.Always a surprise,this is before I got my M.C. , Doug Shannon,who worked as a d.j. at the local oldies station,and made tapes of liners and drops ,for use between songs I played on the air.No track list,but I will tell you what's playing,if you listen!Tell me you love it,and I'll post more! I've got tons of 'em!

THE GRATEFUL GUS - Why?



The final release from this fine band,only 5 songs,but they pack a wallop! My fave is the last cut, "Your Parents,Big Plastic Cat" ,which has that kind of "hook you can't get out of your head,and you walk around singing it to yourself all day", vibe going on.With a Sockeye/The Poops cover!
