Burning Sensations was a short-lived Los Angeles area rock band. The group is best known for its MTV hit "Belly of the Whale", the music for which blends a rather unique fusion of rock and calypso styles, and for covering the Jonathan Richman song "Pablo Picasso", which was included in both the 1984 film and soundtrack of director Alex Cox's Repo Man starring Harry Dean Stanton and Emilio Estevez.

Anything by BS -- other than "Belly of the Whale" -- is extremely hard to find! I was really excited to see this recent post. I've been looking for this and the 1983 album.

But, daaaaang! This has already disappeared from Mediafire?

Sure hope you can re-up soon. Thanks for all the good work!
