 Here's some more of the stuff I used to get in the mail almost every day back in the 80's and 90's.
A lot of it is just weird like this "Art Dump" flyer.

Thirty-one years ago, and Lord Litter was so dedicated to broadcasting independent music, he had to do it via shortwave radio, something that a lot of you probably don't even know what it is!
Unless you were doing this, you have no idea how much work it was. 

These literally were bits and pieces, or snippets and bits of paper sometimes only a couple of inches in size.
It was literally impossible to organize 100's of independent artists, but that didn't stop some people like Guido Erfen from trying.
Writers, artists, and musicians were all searching for an outlet for their talents.
Without commercial backing, 99% of these enterprises were destined to fail. Toshiyuki Hiraoka was one of the few who went on to commercial success scoring films, but you have still probably never heard of him.
There have been many bands named Gypsy over the years, so I don't know if this one got anywhere or not.

Man, they were seeking the "garbled drone of a drunken poet," I should have applied for the job!!

There's all kinds of ways to try and get people's attention and sell things!
Sockeye never died............they just got older like the rest of us!
A lot of this music was vegan, but if there was any meat to it, it was usually boneless!
And Yes, somebody did send this to me in the mail.
