Geekdrip

(Matador) Used LP $8.00

Menacing rattle. Daring, labyrinthine arrangements. Created in England, shelved by Fundamental, mastered from a cassette tape and issued in 1990 after a return to NYC.

Gutter Light

(Fundamental) Used LP $6.00

Screeching, alien chords by Michael Duane. Jacqui Dulaney’s slashing-to-soaring voice. Grit and decay, energy and exhilaration from 1988.

Rhenyard’s Grin

(Rouska) Used LP $5.00

Chiming, steely detuned guitars. Glorious howls slathered with buzz and murk. Lotta no wave and Branca-adjacent themes. It was 1987.

Struggling Electric And Chemical

(Teenbeat) Used LP $6.00

The anthemic intro to “Throw the Bottle Full” and the boiling coda of “The Revenge of Cruiser Gurner” catapult the quartet’s songwriting and rhythmic prowess to a higher plane. A long-overdue interpretation of the Fall’s “Hip Priest” swings with feedback and slop. From 1990. Paper jacket with ring crease

The Dropping Well

(Rouska) Used 12-inch $6.00

Initially appearing in a toned-down version on a 1987 flexi, “Mother Shipton” is here elongated into a treble-frenzied ear-shredder for the A-side, backed with two less excessive though still volume- and harshness-emphasized tracks. Price tag on the back cover
