This is a 7" by Frankie Teardrop, aka Doug Ferguson, also of Yeti and Ohm. This record is an other-worldly trip of electronic source manipulation from an analog keyboard archivist. The rip doesn't do it justice. R.I.P. Doug. Thank you, if you can hear me...
This is "Sacred Cattle: A Lo-Fi Collection of Previously Unreleased Texas Punk 1977 - 1982." It's all pretty solid early style punk and/or powerpop. This was released in '96, I think. The bands are: Boy Problems (Austin, pre- Huns and Inserts) Vast Majority (Houston) Ejectors (Ft. Worth) NCM (Non Compos Mentis) (Dallas)
Johnny Carson Demo Johnny Carson was Rick Vandeveerdonk on snare and high hat and Alex Atchley on the quietest acoustic guitar in the world. They always talked about playing shows in parking lots and a few times they did. Acoustic songs about invisible dogs, pancakes, and me.
Side A is recorded live in Ft. Worth, 1982. Side B is studio material produced by Bob Mould that never saw a proper release until EV dug it up. The live stuff is their best material, in my opinion. By the way, if you come across any of the records on this blog, you should snatch them up quick!
Ft. Worth band 1980-1983. The A side has two songs that were on their Cone Johnson EP and the B side has one song from Cottage Cheese from the Lips of Death and another from a comp called Live at the Hot Klub. DL
When I ripped this, I put the B side first on accident... probably because I like the B side best.
The band was originally from Daingerfield in East TX but moved to Dallas and played plenty shows there. Released on Bad Wreckors out of Dallas. Learn more about this legendary band here: http://www.breakmyface.com/bands/vomitpigs.html Thanks to Ryan R.!
Recorded 1997. From Denton/Ft. Worth, released on Two Ohm Hop out of Denton. Much of the band lives in Austin now, and they only play sporadic shows, which are well worth attending. A live projectionist is part of the band, along with live dub. Excellent chillout music that rewards the patient listener. Ex-members of Suiciety and other stuff. This is DUB. The bass will sound distorted if your system is janky.
This was a short lived project in the summer of 2008. Played a handful of shows in DFW, and around texas, and did a short stint around the midwest. Members of Heinous Genetix and Hercules on these recordings. Ended in August of 2008 due to members moving to different states. Lo-fi spastic screamo stuff.
From Denton, released in the mid 90's by Automatic Records out of Denton. This was a high-point of that era's indie rock, in my opinion. Some might call it post-rock or slowcore or whatever. I call it good.
Seminal hardcore recorded in '92 (the kids call it skr4mzy!). This file is the whole package including all lyrics, art, labels, and inserts. A lot of thought and passion went into this release, and I'm giving it the full treatment in honor of Chad "Cadillac Fraf" Percy, R.I.P.
*EDIT: oops, something was wrong with the audio in this rip. I'll redo it and repost later. sorry!
I was gonna rip and upload this 7" (I like the versions of these songs better on this EP than the LP), but then I found this guy at Blue Skies Above Us blog who already did a great job of ripping and scanning 3 of their releases. There is one EP missing from his post, which I'll eventually rip and put up here. If anyone finds a good version already online, post it in the comments!
