Eat Skull - Wild and Inside

Siltbreeze [2009]

Sorry for the lack of posting lately. Been out and about. I'm also sorry that I have never posted anything from Eat Skull. It becomes more and more apparent to me as time goes on that I am much more stupid than I think I am.
Anyway, if you don't already know, Eat Skull are a beautifully lo-fi pop/ noise/ garage punk outfit from Portland, OR. They were part of that whole "shitgaze" scene that prevailed during the later half of the last century. Last time I saw these dudes they were really drunk.
This is their second album and it's better than their first. I mean, it's not a lot better, but it is indeed better. You know?...


Siltbreeze [2008]

This is the band's first album. It's real good, but not quite as good as the second album...

Urusei Yatsura - We Are Urusei Yatsura

Che Trading [1996]

So this is Urusei Yatsura. They are were a band from Glasgow and they are named after some Japanese manga comic. They sound like Pavement. A lot. They are really good. I can't stop listening to them lately. You should do the same.


Primary [1997]

This is the singles collection that came after the aforementioned debut. It's not quite as good as "We Are..." but it's got some amazing gems on it that must not be missed. This is some top notch 90's lo-fi indie for your earholes folks.

Urusei Yatsura - Pulpo!

Snuff - Snuff Said...

Workers Playtime [1989]

I know this isn't on K. The band put out their album "Reach" on K. This album is better, though. The full name of the album is Snuffsaidbutgorblimeyguvstonemeifhedidn'tthrowawobblerchachachachachachachachachachachayou'regoinghomeinacosmicambience. It's some really good early pop punk.

Dub Narcotic Sound System - Boot Party

K [1996]

The genius behind Calvin's Dub Narcotic Sound System is astounding. This is one of his the groups greatest works.

Steve Fisk - 448 Deathless Days

SST [1987]

So this isn't on K but Steve Fisk put a bunch of stuff out on the label. This is his first formal LP. It's really good.
What we are listening to is a collage of experimental compositions consisting of drum machines, synthesizers, and waves of overlapping samples. It's really good.
