This band is a mystery. The only information that a quick search turns up is that there is this LP and and later 12″. I don’t think that this has been available online before. It’s a great album, that sounds like some Midwestern Rockers gone Art Punk, with female vocals and a guitar player who loves to unleash furious distorto solos all over the place. It reminds me a little of Ron Asheton era Destroy All Monsters, and some of Akron Ohio’s fantastic late 70’s Punk label, Clone Records.
This track is the sample source for Cut Chemist’s, Outro, video link below.

Johnny Jewel, the man behind Glass Candy, The Chromatics, and others, has been on a rampage of Soundcloud posts as of late, tearing through his prolific production catalog and offering it up for free. Take advantage of it while you can.
Some of my favorites…
Interesting record from the duo of Ron Thompson and Tim Bode, plus percussionist Frank Rosa, of downer Xian vibes, with lots of synth and interesting guitar work. I think this is the first time this has been available online. Gospel Train Records, 1980.
