The Hollywood Tapes: D.U.M.B. Rock - va cd

A lovely little comp featuring bands from New York. Iron Prostate (George Tabb on guitar), Functional Idiots, Sea Monkeys, John S. Hall and Jim Fourniadis, Fly Ashtray, Fast Lane, Acidental Potato Chip, Dogbowl, Youth Gone Mad and Rats of Unusual Size are featured in this CD released on Celluloid Records in 1993. All the songs are about the Golden State California.

I think this was one of the first CDs I ever bought. Iron Prostate "Nice Tan" , Functional Idiots Fag Metal (an oath to the Hair Metal bands of the 80's and 90's, Dogbowl (Strange song about San Francisco)and Rats of Unusual Size (L.A. Woman) are the standouts, but all of the bands are pretty good. Some are more punk than others.

There were a couple of other D.U.M.B. rock releases, I have a few of them, depending on how this goes over I might post them to.

I picked this CD up for really cheap many years ago in a used/discard bin, probably around 1996. Some pretty funny stuff on here. I should dig it out for a listen again.
