This puppy smokes from the get go with an homage to early Butthole Surfers as the opening track and then just gets better and better from there. This is hilarious well thought out original music--download immediately and you won't be disappointed!
The DJ comment sticker I took off this record for the picture had one lowly comment....'JUNK'. Ha ha, it just goes to show one man's junk is another man's treasure. Back in college during the late eighties I was trying for a yellow light and a lady turned right in front of me and crushed my front tire under her car. I should have held her accountable for her actions at that point and maybe gotten a new bike but said I was O.K. and not to worry about it (I'm from a middle class family of ten where I hated to be a bother to others and didn't think a new tire was a big deal). At any rate I got the tire and kept riding to my college summer job 15 miles each way but didn't realize my bottom pedals were crooked and so began a twenty year imbalance where one leg got longer and my left brain got cut off and so became an "Immaculate Fool" with a dominating right brain that became a 'tentacle energy pattern' and I started as Bad Brains would say "Living in the Movies" and living PMA. It wasn't until getting fired from eight different engineering/technical sales jobs (yeah left brain is math, etc) for no good reasons and spending most of my thirties at free meals and on unemployment (used the money to buy all these records) that I finally paid $5 for an Alpha-Biotics neck correction that I finally got cured. So this album really speaks to me and I will keep it. Enjoyed the first two X-Men during that time along with many other movies I thought were reflections on my life the same day I saw them but have missed the others (I heard the franchise went bad) oh well anybody from Hollywood want to hire me to be a paid movie watcher? I'm serious. But it did get real bad at the end and during a Run Westy Run show they stopped playing because I felt 'uncomfortable' not saying a word. Oh well lots of the Radio K music in the Nineties/Oughts ruled IMO during this imbalance time. Also, I became quite a truth seeker during that time and a lot of positive change has occurred in the U.S. since then as I needed to understand why I kept getting canned at work before I got cured. Remember the right brain (and I am already left-handed) controls rhythm & creative thought & connects w/nature/society.
NOW HERE is a record that definitely proves a theory. I was reading a post on the Vinyl Addiction facebook page last week about the cause of pops and clicks on records and a commenter said they are from people trying to find songs by dropping the needle near the songs they like and not using the lever that is made for this. This here is an awesome funky party album that came out right after the Red Hot Chili Peppers debut in 1986 (otherwise they may have been just as big) and it was littered with pops and I cut out a few and used my software lever function on high for the rest but yeah they were all over the place on the first few songs like "Payback" and "Get On The Bus" which are ferocious party songs!! I can just see this platter getting played at a rocking house party and someone keep playing the funky ass tunes non-stop!! And here I was calling the pops (to myself) "emotive marks" as they seemed to occur to me right at uncomfortable silences in a song or after embarrassing lyrics or something...wasn't too far off. These guys were pretty huge and in the biggest nineties festivals in midwest USA. I'll have to look into them some more and see what Wiki says. Enjoy!
Wow did these guys used to put on a high energy show!!! It's burned in my mind along with others in the genre I saw like Squirrel Nut Zipper and the Cherry Poppin' Daddies. I tacked on a few songs I taped off a Sunday radio show I used to listen to (wished I had taped more episodes) called Universal Buzz Radio that used to be on after the Harry Shearer show Sundays on my favorite Radio K (.org)--he used to do a lot of the Simpson's TV show voices. On the last song I left a little of the 'Body Flex' exercise tape I taped over...LOL. One other show I know I have somewhere is Soul Coughing--another great live band we used to see quite regularly @ First Avenue. Wonder what became of RCR?
Per his dialog, parenting must have taken priority.
Well I was hoping this was the same punk band with the rare 7 incher the old defunct Isksp blog had posted but that is VENDETTA! with the exclamation point--these guys are hair metal with some moments. http://www120.zippyshare.com/v/vOtrqJpC/file.html
From Orange, CA and on the Swamp Zombies (who they thank) record label Dr. Dream which is always interesting, I will quote the inner sleeve, " Due to the extended playing time of this record, it must be played extremely loud to assure a serious mind fuck". Yes indeed!
These guys thank one of my top hardcore faves growing up, N.O.T.A. but darned if they don't remind me of Hated and Proud that RAC band that came years later. About as generic as you can sound.
Since I had the VHS Rip from long ago also, I posted it. The Reds are all over this soundtrack as well as Tom Petty producing the title track featuring Bob Dylan with back-up band Petty's Heartbreakers, Andy Summers from the Police, Shriekback, Michel Rubini and Tiger Tiger. As usual, the MP4 file joiner freeware is in the last file of the video segments.

This is an older request that was never posted here and not sure where I got it but it was labeled kind of funky and I luckily happened to stumble across it last night looking for something else. Now if I could just find that VA - Ko-Da-Ma Samurai Spirit Japanese Oi! compilation that someone must have labeled funky--spent two nights looking for it. Anybody GOT??
Thanks to Felipe in Brazil from defunct ISKSP blog for these! A recent post on facebook the other day by Stan Lee from the Dickies I think it was got me looking for these. Great LA band!
