WINNIE'S RETRENCHMENT AND EXHIBITION - Various Artists (1991)

"Winnie's Retrenchment & Exhibition" was a various artists compilation tape put together by Ken Clinger in 1991.

 
We contributed one song, and other artists appearing on this cassette were Mark Saucier, Bored Young Men, Nick, Silly Pillows, Foamin At The Mouth, Arnold Mathes, C.I.A.M., Too Righteous Brothers, Dan Fioretti, Zan Hoffman, Atrocity Exhibition, Don Campau, Bonnington Truce, and Tuf-Mikst-Man.

I saw that Ken now has this tape available as a download on his Bovine Productions Bandcamp page, except now he has it as two separate releases, one being "Winnie's Retrenchment," and one being "Winnie's Exhibition."  You'll also find a number of other releases in the Winnie series there. Here's a sample of what you can expect.

IT CAME FROM THE GARAGE II - "Zombie Drums" (1987)

I had a copy of Art Phag's LP that had a poster in it, so one day I decided to try and sell the poster on eBay. Len Puch, the guitar player for Art Phag contacted me, and told me that he'd like to buy the poster, because he didn't have one himself, so I gave him the poster.

When I sent Len the poster, I also sent him a copy of our first tape, "The Worm's Turn," and he sent me this tape that he produced in return. That's how they ended up doing a cover of our song "Mysterical Sights."
 
This release doesn't even exist on Discogs except in LP format, so I might have one of very few. Many of the bands have Art Phag guys in them! There's a lot of great stuff on here, and something to offend almost anybody! Here's a cool surf instrumental for you straight out of Detroit!

GAJOOB ISSUE #9 - SAMPLER #4 (1993)

 
Finally here's the last of the sampler tapes from Gajoob Issue # 9. I hadn't listened to this tape in a long time, and forgot all about Chris Wind, so at long last, here you go! The tape this song came off of was titled "For Amelia" and was released in 1991.

 
Chris Wind aka Peg Tittle, had three cassettes reviewed in this issue of Gajoob, and she is obviously a woman with many different styles. "For Amelia" is not like anything else I quite remember from those days, and is quite beautiful compared to everything else on this sampler.

It's looks like the Canadian Wind quit blowing in about 1995, but she does have a website you can visit to find out more about her, and her work.

SCREAMIN' POPEYES - "Screamin' Popeyes" (1989)

 
What can be said about the Screamin' Popeyes that hasn't been said before?
 Not much!! That's all I can say!

 
The Screamin' Popeyes hailed from Branson, Missouri, and this tape sounds like a cross between The Mothers of Invention, and The Firesign Theatre, and that's not easy, but it is the Screamin' Popeyes!

DINO DIMURO - "Snoutburger" (1989)

 
The copy I got of "DiMuro House" was an economy package, and included another bonus tape on side B called "Snoutburger." What a cool twofer deal!

 
Grab a pint and some chips and dig in, because DD has got something to say!
For the full effect, listen to it twice!

HERMANOS GUZANOS - "Ducks And Covers" (1989)

 
From our 1989 release called "Ducks and Covers" with cover artwork by Brian J. Riedel, here's what one reviewer called "the best version of the most recorded song of all time."

DINO DIMURO - "DiMuro House" (1989)

 
Dino DiMuro is an extremely talented cat, and his music is like an easy-peel package you can't get open, so you just rip it to shreds, and try and figure it out later.

 
Here's a great piece that will hopefully explain it all, but then again, maybe not!
