Live 1981

(Butte County Free Music Society - BUFMS40) CDR $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

Proof that even as far back 1981, teenagers were revolting. Seven rehearsal tracks, recorded on a boombox in the park, and three at a high school talent show, performed by an unruly gang of Northern California wisenheimers led by the class president. Rants are raved, patois is bellowed, metal cans are bashed and crashed, glass bottles are ground together, general percussion and strange instruments are “handled,” toy pianos are pounded upon. Violent entertainment and guerilla war struggle, the reaching of their classmates’ inner minds and sanctifying them through sonic booms are the stated objectives, and barked polemics and nonsense, pomposity and insincerity, dry wit and tasteless camp are the glorious results. Twenty-three minutes of WTF in the grand old tradition of Psycodrama, A Band, Ceramic Hobs, and Drugs Are Nice. Edition of 50.
