APHIDS & WHITE FLY - "Yanked From The Garbage Disposal" (2023)

I've really been slacking off on this blog lately, but I haven't been exactly stagnant. I did manage to put together a couple of things from, as Andy Partridge would say. "The Lure Of Salvage."
So first there's "Rocket Attack" to start off with. It was just a guitar track laid down by Gary Wray that I embellished as best I could!
And second is a little ditty called "Honk," again with a basic guitar track by Gary from ten years or so ago. The artwork is also all done by Gary with help from his pal, AI Carbon.
Never before heard by human ears, here's...

JOE MENICHETTI - "Good News For Modern Mannequins" (1986)

 I never traded tapes with Joe Menichetti back in the 80's but only became aware of him through Don Campau's radio show "No Pigeonholes." This show aired on January 24, 1988. 
100's of these shows can be found on The Internet Archive today!
These days Don Campau hosts a new version of his show, and it is now called "No Pigeonholes EXP" and airs on KOWS radio.

As you can see from this liner note, Joe Menichetti did everything, and when I looked on Discogs, I was surprised to see that it looks like he never recorded anything else, which is kind of mind blowing considering how good this song is.

APHIDS & WHITE FLY - "Two Tune EP" (2023)

 It only took about thirty years to bring this concept to fruition. Okay, so we're a little slow, I admit it, but I think it's worth it.
There's only two songs here, and one has been presented before under the guise of Dos Bozos, but the other one has never been available anywhere. I just wish Gary and I had been able to work in this mode a little bit more, but it just never worked out, and that's just the way it is.

Back in February of this year I told you that my buddy, and fellow Guzano Gary Wray had published a book of his artwork called 
"The Other Worlds of Gary Wray: A Cyclopedia of Comic Art."
Since that time, with the help of his son Erik, Gary has self-published four more books of his art
This one in collaboration with Brian J. Riedel, the third Guzano, is called
This one features Gary's painting and is called
And the latest is
So you can see there's something for everybody if they're weird enough!
