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........

Here's what other people had to say!

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!"

FROM THE EERIE SHORE - Various Artists Compilation CD (1987)

 From some bit of information I got from Lord Litter, I'm not quite sure what, I learned about a talented band called Sosumi out of Cleveland, Ohio! Well, since everybody knows that "Cleveland Rocks" I decided to send them a copy of "The Worm's Turn."
What I got back was a tape from Malcolm Ryder of his band Sosumi on one side, and The Easter Monkeys on the other side!

Not long after that I got this pretty snazzy various artists compilation CD from Malcolm that he had put together. I still have the letter, so I'm going to tell you exactly what he wrote because it cracks me up, and really gives a little bit of a historical perspective to what was happening at the time.
"Here is a copy of the CD comp. I put together. I hope you know someone who has a CD player. Only about 30% of the people in the music scene do, oh well. Hope you like it."
 And I Did!

HOWL IN THE TYPEWRITER - "Going Down The Cat & Trifle" (1987)

 This is the first of many PUMF Records releases I plan on showcasing here since pStan Batcow has so generously donated to the cause, so let's just start at the beginning!
This CD is # PUMF 98, and is a re-release of a cassette made in 1987 by Howl In The Typewriter titled "Going Down The Cat And Trifle" that was pStan's first batch of studio recordings!

 pStan sends out this CD as a kit so if a person wants a legitimate cassette release, you can put it all together yourself!

 Pretty freakin' nifty, he even includes the tape labels!

 So here you go, for your listening pleasure, a pretty cool riff indeed!

Here's everything else you need to know!

ALIEN PLANETSCAPES - "Radio Special, Volume X" (1992)

Alien Planetscapes were on Carl Howard's AT label. We recorded one tape for Carl, and I'm pretty sure he sent this to me as a gift, because I don't remember dealing with these artists directly. There are two cuts, both 'live' from CBGB, NYC 1992. They are each about 40 minutes in length, so I'm just going to give you a four minute excerpt so you can get the feeling.  The players on this particular cut are Ernest Boyd on drums, Reginald Taylor bass, Mitch Markowitz playing guitar, Kevin Mapplebeck playing guitar also, Louis Boone using tapes, electronic percussion, and synth, and Doug Walker on synthesizers, electronic reeds and flutes. Everybody also gets credit for effects!
