Another classic pulled out of the land fill. Digging on this one for sure! BTW I have a few more comedy vinyl conversions I did this past weekend that I am still sorting out the labeling on but should finish in a day or two so hang tight!
I believe these guys came out with the Generic concept before Flipper did. This is a timeless classic from my college dorm years and since then I have bought their first CD which is highly recommended with super fast 'Punk Rock' song to open it up.
Since winning this 7" singles compilation CD from Radio K college station long ago, I have been a die hard fan of this group, seeing them a few times in MN and CA. I have some newer stuff I can't find on cassette. I think I was the only one who had heard of this band and was like the only one dancing by myself to them at the Roxy in 2003 when the last new one I had heard of came out.
Yeah, hope ya'll remember this one with the Cibo Mato gals and with John Spencer Blues help. Gals in both bands with breakout hits all over the Cibo Mato CD that used to be played a lot on Radio K.

I've always had this RB compilation on cassette but never knew the name of it. Really a good one as it covers a lot of real belted out numbers by the boys: Bill Medley from Santa Ana and Bobby Hatfield from Beaver Dam, WI. I added a few from the end of this Best Of hits tape as well from later period.

This is the only Doors album I had not heard.
THE CHAMELEONS - In Shreds 7 82 w Nostalgia 12 EP 82 w As High As You Can Go 12 EP 83 w Script Of The Bridge LP 83 w Live in Camden Palace LP 84 w What Does Anything Mean LP 85 w Strange Times LP 86 w Tony Fletcher Walked On Water...La La La 12 EP 90
REPOST Request: Thanks to Mark Underground for liking and posting this band like a lot of us do and I'm still looking for his Peel Sessions post. I grew up with Script of the Bridge and so I have included my tape copy from my friends decent stereo back then to compare to blog stuff I got at 192 kb/sec.

THE SUBURBS - st EP 79 w In Combo LP 80 w Credit In Heaven 2LP 81 w Dream Hog EP 82 w Love Is The Law LP 83 w st LP 86
REPOST Request: Rattle My Bones was played at every high school dance at my school growing up. Also the album "Love Is The Law" was played at many a house party back then I remember. I think this stuff has all been rereleased with bonus tracks--I know there is a greatest hits CD that really rocks but I couldn't find it for the post. Bruce C. Allen died a few years back and is to New Wave what Pat Fear was to Hardcore I would say. I didn't realize that Credit In Heaven has the Wallets sax and conga player sitting in as well as Chan's wife Terry from the awesome band "Fine Art" singing back up. It was recorded at the historic Studio 80 in Minneapolis where the first digital audio recording took place. Scratchy rips I did except the last LP a crappy tape so I encourage you to buy this while you can.

THE PHONES - Changing Minds LP 82 w Blind Impulse LP 83 w Stickman EP 86 w STICKMAN EP 87 w LIVE The Way It Should Be! LP 89 w st 7 80
REPOST Request: This was my older sister's favorite band and she became close friends with some of them and I went to a few of their parties growing up. My sister's first obsession was in the early days of Prince at First Ave she was a regular, this group and Flamin' Oh's were all her favorites (I would borrow her fake I.D. to see my first gig with RHCP). That fountain on the album cover is downtown by where we used to hang out and skateboard.

BIG TROUBLE HOUSE - Afghanistan LP 89 w Live At The Peace And Justice Festival tape 89 w Watered Down EP 90 w Waterway EP 92 w Mouthful of Violence LP 90
REPOST Request: Half of the Harder Fuller team at First Ave. is the singer here and you can tell they were hangin' there all the time like me with the first album title track sounding a lot like the Butthole Surfers. I apologize for some of my very early first year (back in 2008) rips like the recent Spider aka Shanghai and this live tape with a Minutemen cover song (levels too high...ughh no way to correct as it's chopped and I don't have the tape anymore). BTW make sure you got the Never Blue (Matthias from the band left a comment there about his new band) and Velvascourge as both had noise and I redid the rips. Oh yeah since I'm fessin' and all sorry about getting Trump elected as he is worse than Obama now with his White Phosphorus increasing use in Iraq like Obama and his drones and depleted Uranium use going against all the world's agreements like the War Bully the USA really is now and they take down all the youtube videos about it and our news doesn't cover it (Trump haters why don't you use the White Phosphorus use to condemn him!). We're all too chicken in the USA and currently living in a Police State with the controlled media (oh yeah the First Lady is a confirmed Reptilian). Anyone want to put me up in a castle somewhere so I can just blog away during this last 10 years until I retire abroad as I don't make enough money to save for retirement? Anyways short rant but it is truth and I guarantee every statement I make.

TRIP SHAKESPEARE - Are You Shakespearienced LP 88 w Applehead Man LP 89 w Across The Universe LP 90 w Lulu LP 91 w Volt EP 93 plus Video from PBS TV show
REPOST Request: Also highly recommended to this old band are the offshoot bands like Matt Wilson and Semisonic both with every release they did as excellent. Dan's release this year (2017) called Re-Covered features some excellent covers and of course he won the Grammy for writing songs for the Dixie Chicks. Matt Wilson and John Munson's band called 'The Twilight Hours' were a huge hit on my old youtube channel. I saw shows by all bands and each were legendary!
