This CD by Joe Shmoe...And The Crapulous Snigglers was titled "Piss On It!"
Joe never puts dates on these things, but this CD is probably from the mid-90's, and it does come with a warning that's it's "Unsuitable For Listening By Anyone Of Any Age."
I don't know why he thinks so, I've heard a lot worse. I'll have to ask him the next time I talk to him.
Come to your own conclusions!

ARTHUR ALEXANDER - "...Steppin' Out" (2023)

It's pretty damn funny sometimes what it takes to get everything put into the right perspective! In my world it happens a lot!
I just recently discovered the talents of a musician named Arthur Alexander.
 Lord Litter has been playing a lot of his music on his "Magic Music Box International" radio shows, and I thought it was pretty cool that there were still new musicians out there making awesome music. 
 From the high energy and amazing songwriting by Arthur Alexander, I just thought he was some young up and coming musician. Boy, was I surprised to find out that not only has Arthur been around for decades, but I actually had a record of his in my collection that was recorded in 1981 when he was in a band called "The Sorrows."
 The opening track on Arthur's latest album is called "Woman" and it just blows me away. Further truth that when it comes to rockin', age is indeed, just a number!!
You can hear that song and a whole lot more by visiting The Big Stir Records website.
 Big Stir Records has made a name for itself among "older rockers who still are vital."About 2-3 years ago they released a single by another one of my favorite new/old artists, Rich Arithmetic, whose last album "Shiftingears" (Kool Kat Musik, 2021) would have been a good fit on the Big Stir label as would his upcoming album "Pushbutton Romance."

NO PIGEONHOLES #142 - Lauri Paisley - "Chapter Two" (1989)

Here's another excerpt from Dan Campau's "No Pigeonholes" radio show #142. Lauri Paisley is a keyboardist from New Jersey, and I had a tough time finding any further information about her, but it was because at first I was searching for Laura, then I tried Laurie and Lori before finally figuring out her name was spelled Lauri.
I finally found this picture of the cover of her 1987 album titled "The Fire Of Dreams" on Discogs from which this song came from. Lauri's music is a little bit different than most of the pop rock presented here, but I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
Since I couldn't find any info at first I tried my skills at some AI art, and this is what was created when I used the words paisley pigeonholes. If you put enough weird words together, there's no telling what you'll come up with! I think it fits the music nicely!

SLIM THE DRIFTER - "Dances With Downers" (1991)

I can't really believe it's taken me this long to get around to this tape. The only reason was I have probably the only sealed copy in the whole world, and I could just never bear to open it until now.
"Dances With Downers" was a 1991 release put out by our good buddy Slim The Drifter, aka Scott Sturtevant.
The brilliant cover illustration was done by comix artist extraordinaire Brian James Riedel.
 Slim was one of the most talented people I have ever known, but he was also one of the biggest messes I have ever known, and a true tortured artist.
He was a good friend who was the only person I could depend on to help me one time when I had to move despite his failing health.
Slim The Drifter was the real deal, and he took his name from one of  his heroes Hank Williams, aka Luke The Drifter. Slim even went so far as to work as a carnie before he passed away.
Slim was the only artist besides ourselves to ever grace the Guzbro Label, and as a truly independent artist, he relished the opportunity. A self-confessed drugstore cowboy, his heavy drinking made him difficult to be around at times, but inside, there was the heart of a good man.
