Widgets 86 Empty Hearts LP

REPOST NEW GUEST RIP:  Thanks to Jeff Crane for sending in a new rip (I cut out the dead space and seperated out the 'hidden' song for him) of what we both agree is a classic.  They used to play weekly at our college bar and the 'Widgets' gals would always be up front leading the dance floor in a frenzy!  Aaron the singer was from Urban Guerrillas and went on after this band to the Delilahs.  He was from the local MN suburbs like we were and he had a knack for keen song topics and phrasing like "existential neurosis".

Listening to this album right now that I had burned to CD about a decade ago. Had the internet been around when this came out they would have certainly gone viral. Outstanding album despite its lack of polish.

Hi Jeff,
Thanks for the comment. This was our college dorm 'house' band if you will at a nearby bar. We would go see them often. Aaron the singer was in the Urban Guerrillas then after the Widgets broke up he started the Delilahs and I saw all three bands quite a bit and a great band to feverishly dance to late into the night. My album in fact is all messed up from playing so much. Can you post your rip and anything else you have by them on zippyshare for me? You don't need to set up an account just send me the link and I'll post it again for other too. A better picture of the CD case info would be nice too...LOL

Awesome. I have to check out Urban Guerrillas and the Dehlilahs. I'll email you when I post. Want to find the vinyl so I get the song names. "CD" case is a clear jewel case. But I can maybe get a better album pic (once I find it.)
