Well, I've kind of been slacking off this month, so to make up for it, here's a special tape I've been hanging on to by Mississippi punky band," Bonnington Truce, titled 

For being "Mississippi's first and best "punk" band, it's pretty difficult to find out much information on these guys, but I do know the members were Patrick Wallace on Vocals & Guitar, Earl Lundy on Vocals & Keyboards, Ben Young on Vocals & Guitar, Jeff Bridges on Bass, and Hugh O'Neill on Drums. I have no idea who is playing sax on this cut. This tape was "Recorded live in Hattiesburg at dingy clubs." You can read about one of their other releases right HERE!
In the meantime, check out this cool tune!

LETTUCE VULTURES - "Hey Assholes!" (2021)

I lost track of Dave Schall of Sockeye for years, but when we finally got back in touch, he sent me all kinds of stuff including this cassette tape he released in 2021 as the Lettuce Vultures.

The reason that I found out Dave was still active was because one of his songs was on pStan Batcow's "Godspunk" CD #20.
Dave always had plenty of attitude, and a lot of sarcastic humor to back it up, and that continues in his projects some 30 years later! I think you'll agree after listening to this!

Can't get enough?
Here's where you can find it all!!

NO PIGEONHOLES #108 - "YU" (1988)

Don Campau is an amazing guy, and if he played your music on his radio show called "No Pigeonholes" on radio station KKUP in Cupertino, Calif, he would then turn around and make a copy of the show and mail it to you! To this day, I still find it amazing.
These days Don has shows on KOWS in Occidental, California, and I'm imagining that with the internet, he no longer has to a need do that, because you can download all his shows for free!

I was listening to this show from 1988 the other day, and one song really stood out to me, and Don announced that it was a band from Texas called YU, and a tape named "Family." So, with the help of Discogs, I was able to find the artwork for the tape that this song came from. The band members were named Bentley Shaft. C.U. Squirm, and Rod Miles.

HOUR OF SLACK #253 (1988)

We might not have ever made any money, but at least we got played on some very cool radio stations, and radio programs like the "Hour Of Slack" operated by the right honorable Reverend Ivan Stang.

You just can't go wrong being on the right side of Bob! That's what I always say!
You might think that in these days of un-certainess that Bob has turned his back on us, but I'm here to tell you that it just ain't true!

Life will always bring us more questions than it will provide us with answers!
 Get over it!
Here's a short edited sound clip from the "Hour Of Slack" #253 where Reverend Stang introduces our band!

POETRY DEVILS - "Want To Understand Light And Darkness?" (1989)

 I was just thinking how I'm going to run out of tapes one of these days, but until that time, here's another great tape I got from the Poetry Devils back in 1989.

The Poetry Devils were Robert Winson, Miriam Sagan, and Brian S. Curley, and they hailed from New Mexico, and their blend of poetry and rock and roll was phenomenal. It was pretty exciting to get something like this in the mail back in the day!
Back in the 70's at Sonoma State, I had a Saturday Radio show, and one night I hosted an hour of poetry. One guy brought a fifth of Jack Daniels with him. I wish I still had THAT recording!

This tune has Miriam Sagan reciting the poetry, with the very talented Brian S. Curley playing the Bass, and the Guitars, the Percussion, and the Rhythm Machine.
It's my pleasure to present.......
