JAMES HILL - "Painful Contractions" (1984)

 James Hill is a very talented trumpet player who first came to my attention because of his work on Don Campau's amazing double cassette called "PiƱata Party."
I sent out a lot of unsolicited tapes to musicians, and I probably never heard back from about 20% of them, and who can blame them? Our music wasn't for everybody, and a lot of people just didn't have time, interest, or any inclination to reply! James Hill was one of those, and I think I told Don that it was too bad because I really liked what I had heard of his music, and so Don sent me this tape after that!
My favorite song on this tape was titled "Pussy Patrol" but a tune that better highlights James's talent is this!

BLINK TWICE - "Baby Had An Accident" (1993)

The other side of GPC #006 aka "Baby Had An Accident" was performed by Blink Twice!

I did find the VHS box for this tape, and it did indeed have a diaper in it, and then in another box of stuff, I found this "Baby Had An Accident" paperback book/magazine full of all kinds of reviews including our first tape. They called our music 'Sleazy."
 It doesn't get much better than that!!

THE MAS - "Baby Had An Accident" (1993)

I was going through a bunch of loose stuff I have a couple of weeks ago, and I found a small cache of cassettes without cases and/or labels. Some of it seemed familiar, some not so much after 30 years.
One of those tapes was this split tape of electronic music with The Mas on one side, and Blink Twice on the other.
When I saw it was a GPC Production from Alientown, Pa, I remembered that I got quite a bit of stuff from Alex Kane who produced this tape, including a Sinister Attraction Record, and some videos, but I still couldn't figure out why there was no case.

I started grubbing around on the internet trying to come up with a date for this tape, and I didn't find anything on Tape Mag, but I did find this on Discogs, and then it all came back to me. The original case for this tape is actually the size of a VHS tape, and I'm sure mine is stashed away with some VHS tapes some place. IF I recall correctly, I think it came with a diaper inside!
So here you go!

THE HOWL IN THE TYPEWRITER - "Worlds Tour - LIVE on Saturn and Jupiter" Pumf Records (1985)

 Here's another nifty package from pStan Batcow in the guise of The Howl In The Typewriter called  "Worlds Tour - LIVE on Saturn and Jupiter" that was originally a cassette released in 1985, but now presented as a CD with everything you need make your own cassette if you'd like!

This is Pumf release number 49 and is described in the Pumf Catalogue thusly:
"Two early live solo performances, during which audiences were pushed to the limit. Elements of the show included Howl watching TV on stage with his back to the auidence, whilst backing tapes screeched, guitars fed back, and drum machines clattered."
And personally I'd say, that's a pretty fine description!

The shows are cut up into shorter pieces to possibly make it more palatable!

 The sample I'm giving you is track number two!

These are the enclosed cassette labels if you're making your own tape!

Do yourself a favor! Go order something, or at least go check it out!

SCREAMIN' POPEYES - "Anna" (Early 1990's)

I gave you a couple of songs off this Screamin' Popeyes tape five years ago, but I decided there's a song on this tape that is so 70's pop perfect, you just had to hear it. This song is a real good example of music you didn't hear much from home tapers, and proves that the Popeyes were capable of almost anything, so without further adieu, here's

SCREAMIN' POPEYES - "Gas Music From Jupiter" (1990)

Except for Wayne Newton, the Screamin' Popeyes were without a doubt, the coolest band in Branson, Missouri at any given time!
The Popeyes did it all, from amazing pop/rock music to stuff like this!
Here's a taste of another world........

SABOTAGE Q.C.Q.C.? - "Tumulte" (1993)

 I just always called them SABOTAGE! It was a Helluva lot easier!
That tape was also this CD that I received some time later!
Both were sent to me by Isabelle Gernard back in the day!
I also have a VHS video I need to convert one of these days that she sent me that is really hot!
Sabotage Q.C.Q.C.? is a great band! I have no clue why they never made it to the top!

Here's another great powerhouse of a song that translates to
"The Evil Flowers!"
