Salad From Atlantis - Sea Green Spiral

Meantime Records
COX11 / 1988

Crusty, cider-drinking punky southerners. Really groovy bass work from Tim Fish, and catchy tunes to counteract the patchouli.

A1 - Single Breath
A2 - Sky's The Limit
A3 - Diamond Spiral / Carmen
B1 - D.T.
B2 - Small World
B3 - I'm Not Sure Anymore
B4 - Something In My Cyder (mantra)

I need sunlight to photo the sleeve properly, so artwork to follow.

Crent - Crent

Waterfront Records
DAMP132 / 1990

A side-project of Celibate Rifles chap Kent Steedman. Goes all over the place, from Slint-ish post rock twanging to an 18 minute Neu!-esque krautrock workout. Very nice.

Apparently Crent is the female equivalent of smegma. Very un-nice.

01 - Loser
02 - Intestine Beanie
03 - Save The
04 - Greiner Is A Crent
05 - Battery Rap
06 - 9.k.?

I'll do the artwork when the sun comes out.

And for PC people, here's the rather epic track 6 without a '?' in the title. Sorry about that.

Jah Division - Dub Will Tear Us Apart EP

The Social Registry
TSR012 (edition of 800) / 2003

I think it kind of speaks for itself. Apologies for the slight click on track 3 - manufacturing fault.
Generic Social Registry sleeve with Jah Division sticker.

A1 - Transmission Dub
A2 - Heart + Soul Dub
B1 - Dub Disorder
B2 - Dub Will Tear Us Apart

Frankfurter (The Stupids present...) - Eat EP 12"

Vinyl Solution
FART1 1987

Ah, Vinyl Solution - what a magnificent label. Here's The Stupids with a concept EP about food. Kind of. Silly fuckers. Sounds just as you'd expect, which is great.

1. Freak E. Frank & The Get Frank Crew
2. Gimme Donuts
3. Inbred Zombies
4. More Of The Same

5. Hot Babes
6. Mega Zombie
7. Pasta Boy
8. Raise The Breadknife

Plain white sleeve with a sticker in the corner.

Butthole Surfers - 1983 Demos

PUNK007 1983
12" Green Vinyl

1. Radical West
2. White, Dumb, Ugly & Poor
3. Matchstick
4. BBQ Pope
5. Something
6. I Hate My Job

The Tards - I'm Just Like You 8"

Sympathy For The Record Industry
SFTRI239 1993
8" vinyl (there's a novelty)

1. I'm Just Like You
2. Quiet Village Idiot
3. I'm Just Like You (Reprise)

Look, I just bought it. It's not my fault. Get on their case!

There's an insert outlining the "Society for Cutting Up Mensas" Manifesto, which explains a little of their motivation in recording this. So take that stick out of your ass and place your tongue as firmly in your cheek as they had at the time. Boyd Rice and Adam Parfrey are known for their dark humour after all.

Wooden Records
WOOD2 1986

1. Telephone Box
2. Nob Gob
3. I Slap My Belly
4. Every Day I Try To Find The Man Who Killed My Brother

Buy his poetry books.

Satin Chickens - The Anatomy of Sodomy 2x7"

Sympathy For The Record Industry
SFTRI96 1991 Ltd Edn of 1000

Side A plays at 331/3rpm
Others play at 45rpm

A: The Anatomy of Sodomy
AA: Garbage People
AAA: Gang Bang and the Pain Master
AAAA: Belching, Demon TOAD

I've just noticed that my review of this from elsewhere has appeared as the official review on Good lord.

Not much information out there, but Satin Chickens included Edwin Pouncey, Stefan Jaworzyn, Stephen Thrower, and undoubtedly some other people involved in Coil/NWW.

Dedicated to the sacred flapping jowels of Billy Mundi.

Pregnant Neck - Scaffolder Olcer EP

Neckesque Records
NECK1 1990

1 - Pie and Mash
2 - Wasn't Told
3 - Silicone Implants
4 - One Scratch

The track order on the vinyl doesn't match the cover track list, so I've reordered it.

Noisy, clanky nonsense from Essex, like a down-at-heel Stump meets a sped-up Artphag with Swell Maps vocals.

Strangulated Beatoffs - Lick My Butthole 7"

Glitterhouse Records
GR 0132 LC 8323

320k rip from vinyl

01 - Lick My Butthole
02 - Broken Nose
