The Laughing Hyenas - Merry Go Round w Demos 86 w Live At Edward's #8, Birmingham, UK. Nov. 8th 1989
Thanks to Alberto Diaz for the live and demo stuff I got in a trade from Spain the other day...more goodies to follow. http://www38.zippyshare.com/v/73732633/file.html
San Francisco band featuring Mario Escovedo on vocals who is the brother to Alejandro and Sheila E.! Very talented family. http://www38.zippyshare.com/v/7984242/file.html
Pretty bad but good definition of Bop musical movement from '82: "the elaborate 5 piece jazz oriented Horn Sections known as the "Boppin Brass", mixed with the Funky Rhythm Sections combining the arrangement of the 40's which make up the "R and Be-Bop" sound."
O.K> check back tomorrow, apparently the file is missing some songs from the later album...my computer chip must have been chirping on overload with all the files in this one or something!
REPOST Request: I seriously get shivers up my spine every time I hear this very first song "Treason". Even though it's instrumental, something about it hit's my core. A little history, I had one brother into the Stones/Springstein/Tom Waits and another older brother into Beatles/Doors/Buffalo Springfield so borrowing their records growing up I latched on to Zeppelin and the Delta Blues sound. In 1979 I went apeshit over Gary Numan's song "In Cars" playing it over and over on my box cassette-held-up to the radio recording of it. Later in the early eighties I would have another about face after hearing Minor Threat's "Out of Step" and then rejected all AOR Classic rock, buying every new hardcore record and Maximum Rock N. Roll magazine at the old Northern Lights record store downtown Mpls. as they came out. Another track I would play again and again on my taped songs was Frank Mills "Music Box Dancer" (I found another LP of his so I will post again with the solo male theme next) so maybe that explains my instrumental new wave electronica obsession. If you like this band also check out this week's Sincero first LP or Pittsburgh's the Silencers from a few weeks back as I keep discovering this stuff and diggginggg ittt!!!! The Brains are from Atlanta.

REPOST Request: Cortex was a rock band from Gothenburg, which was active from 1980 - 1988. Front Figure and sole constant member was Freddie Wadling, ex-Livet Lever. The band is today best known for the song The Freaks, who are featured in the film God Save the King. Cortex grew out from Freddie Wadling's former band Liket Lever. Cortex was called at first (from January
1980) Koma Jesus, but they quickly changed the name into Cortex. 1981 they released their first 7inch at Heartwork Records. The band was initially very punk-related but then more towards into a decent new wave sound. Today, however, the band counted as the most post-punk band. The band changed its constant members, and even their song material was wide. Cortex was initially on the label Heartwork Records, run by Henrik Venant in Lund during the first half of the 80s, but then
switched to the Gothenburg-based Radium 226.05 label. Their legendary debut record Spinal Injuries came out 1983 (recorded 1981) and offers ten cool wave-rock-pop tunes, including the song 'The Freaks' which is today their most famous creation. Then many line-up changes accompanied the band and they released a live album plus two more. At the end of the 80s the band split up and and now has cult status.

REPOST Request: Here we have a ripping classic-worded tune produced by the old sound board man at the 7th St. Entry Billy Batson (part of First Avenue Club) home to my favorite shows of all time like Superchunk, Big Black, Replacements, Komeda, Tuscadero, and that producer's band the Mighty, Mighty Mofos. I've included three different rips here since according to one clerk at Guitar Center a round needle head over say a oval head MIGHT permanently reck a groove and two rips are the used copy I have with round S-120 needle tips--an older one I did when I used boost to record that minimizes the damage and a new one I did no longer using boost with same needle while the third is my buddies copy I had on tape from back in the day before finding it used a few years ago. Clear as mud??!!?
