GLEN ARMSTRONG AND THE DIRTY CLERGY - "Bring Me The Head Of The Saxophone Player" (1987)

 Here's an early X-Mas present!
Glen Armstrong is one of my favourite musicians I never met, and this cassette is just another reason why! I also still have a tee shirt with this same picture on it.

This tape was titled "Bring Me The Head Of The Saxophone Player," and isn't really meant to be listened to by mere mortals! It's that good!
For a more recent version of Glen's music, you can still get his CD or a digital download of "Sounds Of The Czars" from 2003 on Amazon!

NOISE EAST INDIES - "Meat Powder & Click Clack" (1984)

 I always really liked the look of this cover, and it's one of my favourites, but every time I try and listen to the tape itself, I get a headache, like right now! 
I'd feel bad about saying that, but I think it was their intention!

Here's are the credits!
 All sound construction is done by Mark Fink, Bill McCandless, and Bo Parker!
There are no song titles, so here's one of the shorter pieces! 
If you like noise,  then this just might be your favourite tape!

LEE RUDE - "Ju Ju Hand" (1986)

I don't remember much about this tape by Lee Rude, except that most of it was unlistenable cover tunes!

I think he was from either Blue Ball or Celeryville, Ohio, but I can't remember which!

SLIMZANOS - "Leave Me Alone" (1990)

 Here's some music that has never seen the light of day before, or been heard by anybody except those involved! As Hermanos Guzanos, we'd be playing in my garage and once in a while other people like Slim Dewayne would drop by and join the festivities!
Slim led a rough life of his own choosing, but we always had a lot of fun together!

I found this tape with all my other stuff of a session (If you want to call it that) when Slim, who would later start calling himself Slim The Drifter, showed up and played a few tunes with us. The good songs ended up on two of our tapes "UFO Excecutives," and "Country Fried Worms," but here's a real short thing that we never included on any tape before!
 So while we're on the subject, here's one of the songs Slim sang on our "Country Fried Worms" cassette!

LAWRENCE SALVATORE - "I Love You (Say It With Bricks)" (1985)

 Lawrence Salvatore was from Joliet, Illinois. He was a pioneer in home taping!
I told the story of how we met before in these pages, because one of his other tapes titled "My Leg In Love With Your Leg" was one of the first ones I featured on this blog back in 2013.

I tried to find some current information on him, but came up with zilch.

Lawrence is a unique and fascinating musician!

As you can see, Lawrence did everything himself!
 He sang on many of his songs, but here's a quite fine instrumental featuring his keyboard skills, and I love the title!

You never knew what might show up in your mailbox back in the 90's. This is a CD that my pal Dimitar in Varna, Bulgaria sent me in 1992!

There's no date or other information that's in English, except for a few of the song titles!

The music on this CD is all very much Blues oriented, but at first I thought it was a Various Artists compilation, and then it started sounding the same for a couple of songs, so either way, it's all raw blues, and there are quite a few different arrangements and people doing the lead vocals.

So I didn't think anybody would care if I shared some of it with you, so here you go, a track featuring a guy on trombone, and a growler on vocals who kind of sounds like a Bulgarian John Bartles!
 I did a google translate into English on this title and it came out like this...
so there you go!

LORD LITTER - "On The Other Hand" (1990)

This tape was from Lord Litter's "Forbidden Planet" period!
 It's nothing like most of his rock-oriented releases, but instead he wants you to "Listen pretty quiet but with the bass turned up on your hi-fi gotta subconsciously feel's not meant to listen might find some 20 minutes that will catch your attention but all in all it's ongoing and it's meant to be that way..."
It goes on for 90 minutes, but I'm going to give you a three minute and thirteen second except from the very beginning so you can get the feel!

RENDEZVOUS DEBRIS - "Uncle Dad" (1991)

I don't have much here. This tape doesn't have any contact or date information on it.
The group was called Rendezvous Debris, and this tape was titled "Uncle Dad," and I've got #18 of 200 numbered tapes, and that's about all I can tell you! 

If I run across any letters or other information, I'll update it later, for now, all I know was that otro Guzano Gary Wray was on an Electronic Cottage compilation tape in 1991 that also had a cut by Rendezvous Debris on it, so I'm guessing that's probably about the same year as this release.
