Themes From Great Cities
It might have come to your attention that I'm not a regular poster of love and understanding, which you will just have to get used to. I will however, have bursts of creativity where I move completely randomly from post to post with no rhyme or reason. I have recently posted a few singles (7 & 12”) and the odd bootleg which have been received very well by all who visit. More of the same will continue as you, dear readers, seem to be enjoying them.
Some of the rips are my own, but many more are from other blogs and I’m just sharing the wealth. If other bloggers out there wish to share the rips from my posts, please as I do, host them yourself. To combat this, the FLAC files that are over 6 months old will be replaced with MP3 files.
Finally I am happy to re-up old posts where the link has expired. Please comment in the relevant posts comments box.
After releasing the EP Roman Candle (1983) and full album Flesh For Lulu (1984) with its attendant singles, they were unceremoniously dropped by Polydor Records…Thankfully in 2017 (after 33 years) the Lulu’s have been graced with a double CD release collecting together all of their Polydor output along with three BBC Radio sessions…fuck that! Here’s the vinyl in shiny MP3 @ 320kbps
Recording under the moniker You've Got Foetus on Your Breath, Jim Thirwell, aka Foetus, released his first album, Deaf, in 1981. Thirwell's eccentric trademark sound, a confrontational sonic tapestry based on harshly recorded instruments, noises, samples, and voices, is firmly established on Deaf. The songs are twisted heaps of sound that sometimes resemble Frank Zappa outtakes being pummelled to death by Einstürzende Neubauten and Thirwell's scatological, antisocial lyrics only add to the bizarreness. If you've got the stomach for it, Deaf can be rewarding, but it's also a great way to clear the room at a party.
Finally Re-upped with a new FLAC and bonus MP3 links
