    July '75 and a band called CHROME were sculling  around the third rate pub circuit long before Mr Rotten and Co. had pissed in  their first ash tray. Ted Carroll looked at the Melody Maker gig guide(erama),  pushed his glasses back up his nose and decided that with a name like that they  had to be the first band on CHISWICK RECORDS. A week later, accompanied by  diminutive partner, Roger Armstrong, he slunk into a seedy pub in Highbury and  was confronted by four mean looking characters playing Chuck Berry riffs as if  their lives depended on it. To the right, ... Read more »

    Their first full length, two singles and self titled EP (the EP is by all means impeccable) here for download. This is a somewhat electronic post-punk version of The Sound. Great use of drum machine. Highly recommended!

    Second Layer was an electronic-based outlet for the Sound's Adrian Borland and Graham Bailey. Borland supplied guitars and vocals while Bailey provided keyboards, bass, and drum programming. The full length World of Rub ... Read more »

    Philip Drucker, alias Jackson Del Ray, is a curious and somewhat mysterious figure whose music is undeservedly little known. Drucker was an art student who first came to most people's notice as a founding member of Savage Republic. The band was initially musically primitive, with frequently out-of-tune instruments backed by percussion as simple as Drucker pounding on a 50-gallon oil drum, but there were hints of Greek and Middle Eastern music in their sound. As the band matured, these elements became more pronounced, but so did the rivalry between guitarist Bruce Licher and Drucker over who was in charge of the band. A close associate remembers that virtually every rehearsal ended with a bitter ... Read more »

    This record asks a post in my friend's Mystery Poster style: just the cover, the title and the link.
    But I'm afraid that even if the curius listener search for it, there's nothing to find. You see this LP released in Greece only, on Nate Starkman & Son Greece, in a limited edition of 500 numbered copies, and I don't know if anyone noticed it. The record came with an insert in the Indepented Project Records style (only this was in black with silver letters).
    As for the band, the only things I can tell you are these: they were a quartet from California and they may have sort of relation with Indepented Record/Nate Starman & Son chief Bruce Licher. Some of the tracks of this self-produced album released as an EP in the U.S., I presume in equaly limited quantity.

    The hypnotic world of Medusa Cyclone began in 1992, following the breakup of
    legendary Detroit psych/punk outfit ViV Akauldren. ViV keyboardist and Medusa Cyclone
    frontman, Keir McDonald, wanted to continue the space-rock approach that made ViV
    famous on both sides of the Atlantic. Medusa Cyclones first release was in 1992 on Manta
    Ray Fleet, a Detroit-based 7 label started by McDonald and Chris Girard. Although Manta
    Ray Fleet worked in small runs of about 200, the label enjoyed a strong following in the lofi
    underground of the early 1990s. Early fans included Stephen Malkmus and Mark ... Read more »

    Jeff Tarleton: "As a teenager the  inevitable happened and I formed my first and only band. We were a three-piece  named Trancegland. When the drummer quit to join the army, Deb Agolli joined and  we changed our name to Viv Akauldren. With me on vocals, guitar and bass and  Keir McDonald on synths, farfisa and bass we toured five hard years on the US  underground scene. I don't want to go into details here about the band but the  hard facts are we made 3 LPs, an EP and a couple of singles. (All are out of  print but you can still find them if you're lucky). There were amazing  performances too, that I will never forget as long as I live and I know there's  a lot of people out there that feel the same way.
    We played with a lot of  great bands. Quite a few got famous in the 90s but then was really an innocent  t ... Read more »

    Two gals and one guy from Cincinnati. A great album from the  1990s- lots of nice guitar-y jangle pop and female vocals (like an underproduced  Let's Active), and then the guy shows up with his crappy distortion pedal and  makes it sound like Beat Happening's snotty little brother.

    And then the  third track, "Let's Smoke," and the eighth track, "Pussy Strut" could be the a-  and b-side of some lost garage 45.

    Enjoy, and Happy New Year!
