Beat Happening
- Beat Happening EP (1985) -- It's the yellow album in the above animated gif.  Greg Sage (punk guitar god of Portland) produced it.  I wonder if he is having the same misgivings. 

Murray Head "One Night In Bangkok b/w Merano" 12" Single (1984)

Get Thai'd! You're talking to a tourist
Whose every move's among the purest
I get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine

Side B is a throwaway.

Meatmen Rock 'n' Roll Juggernaut (1986) Worst Meatmen album of all time.

The Birthday Party, Junkyard LP (1982) Hands off this one, hands off! she cried/grinning at me from hip to hip.

Todd Homer was in the Angry Samoans and their epic and bitter breakup is hashed out once again here - I'm not totally sure that's Todd speaking at the bottom of the page.
Memories in My Head - mono lo-fi minimal
Wrapped in My Memory - Shawn Smith

Coffee and Cigarettes: For Girls Who Smoke

"I Wish I Was A Single Girl Again" - Kelly Harrell (from Climax Golden Twins Victrola Favorites)
"Claim" - Cynthia G. Mason


n ever say n ever
box it up in a chocolate face
traces of lipstick on a flame
bottled up and reaction of pain
do it up, slop the trough
feed the machine, ever 'n'

 Akron/Family's Meek Warrior, not poison idea
Pere Ubu's Why I Hate Women - question never answered.
