I have recently busted out all of my 7″ singles and have been converting them to digital files. While I was doing this I realized that most of the stuff I have on vinyl is out of print, so I figured why not share some of it. Most of it is pretty obscure and comes from my days as music director at WCDB and obsessive vinyl hound. The first installation of this kinda weekly series will be for the band you see in the picture above. I think I got both of the singles from which these songs are swiped, from Jimmy Tassos Mail order before he started up matinee records. Those were the days, I would get this little catlog in the mail every 6 months or so that would be packed with indie pop from all over the place, 75% of the stuff I’d never heard. I’d read his little descriptions and order a bunch of stuff. Neil Armstrong was one of my purchases, I know next to nothing about the band exept for what was printed on this insert found in the Benno single…
I have two songs from them, and don’t think that they released anything else (if they did please let me know, I’d love to hear it). One appeared on Labrador Records second release, a 7″ called a Single Bite, and the other from a Benno 7″ called Benno Present’s volume 1. Both songs are catchy in that sugary swedish way.
This one’s from the Benno 7″
And this one is from the Labrador 7″
