FURNACEFACE Unsafe at Any Speed 1996

I Hate the 90s loyal fan and contributor Martin gives us another obscure upload. Thanks Martin! The guitars and drums on this remind me a lot of Serpico (later known as Sleeper).

TRUCK STOP LOVE self titled 1993

I think this might have been their first release but not positive (in case they had some obscure release on a tiny record label or some demos). Their second album, How I Spent My Summer Vacation, is much more hard rock instead of laid back like this EP. Check 'em out.

MAVIS PIGGOTT You Can Be Low 1996




Mavis Piggott Biography

by Steve Huey

A hard-rocking, (mostly) female post-grunge band based in Seattle, Mavis Piggott never caught the attention of the public at large. Less abrasive than Hole or Babes in Toyland, less girlish than Veruca Salt, their music fell somewhere in between; it also met with general indifference from critics, who usually found it solid but lacking distinction. Guitarist/vocalist Meghan Adkins teamed up with drummer Nicole "Nicky" Thomas to found Mavis Piggott; Thomas had previously played with the all-female Dischord band the Fire Party before relocating from Washington, D.C., to the West Coast. Adding bassist John Wickhart, late of the recently defunct Hush Harbor, Mavis Piggott signed with Flydaddy and debuted with a 1995 EP called Late Bloom. Their first full-length album, You Can Be Low, arrived in 1996 and slipped largely under the radar. A second album, In a Dark Suit, followed in 1999 and received slightly more attention, but failed to win them a wider audience, and the group quietly faded away.

FLAT DUO JETS I'll Have a Merry Christmas Without You 1994

Released on Norton Records and pressed on green wax with a Peter Bagge cover. I bought this for $2.99 at Shangri-La Records, Memphis. Shangri-La always had such great 7 inch records to plunder through. I'm not sure if they are still open or not. If you are ever in Memphis, go check them out.

THE SEYMORES Blue Star 7 inch

The Blue Star 7 inch was released by a tiny record label, Full City Blend, in the early 1990's. No date exists on the record which by the way was pressed on blue marbled wax. And unfortunately I don't know anything about this band but don't think they ever released a full length CD which was very unfortunate, as they had a catchy sound and could have come up with some great songs for a release.

Full City Blend had on the burner some other releases from Handsome and Vitapup as you can see by the insert enclosed with the 7 inch.
If anyone knows whether these other releases were pressed, let me know. I would have loved to have especially had the Handsome 7 inch.

DANIEL JOHNSTON and YO LA TENGO Speeding Motorcycle 7 inch 1990

Received a promo copy of this while college radio DJing. Best perks in the world!
Side A : Speeding Motorcycle
Side B: Do You Really Love Me? (live)

Recorded in "glorious mono."

Speeding Motorcycle was released on the Singles Only Label with catalogue number SOL-911-7
The cover as you can see reads "Live on WFMU February 4th 1990"
I'm not sure if that means both songs or just side B.

And I almost forgot. My friend Princess Kingry and I performed this one night at Sluggo's with me on guitar and us sharing vocals. Jeff from local Pensacola band Sewerfish let me borrow his guitar. Fun times! But the crowd looked a little puzzled as to why we were singing it the way we were as we chose to sing it exactly the way it was sung on this record. Once you hear this version you'll get what I mean.
