Release Info: SEVERED HEAD IN A BAG-S/T, CDR, 2006 (RECORDED: EARLY 80'S), USA
Bootlegged from cassette and live sources by the cats behind the Dolor Del Estamago (formerly Stomach Ache) imprint, this fantastic and highly obscure early 80's slobbering free rock/free noise melee was brought to you courtesy of a loosely aggregated outfit led by Jon Wayne/3 Day Stubble nutter, future Medicine drummer and occasional Whitehouse associate Jim Goodall. Known (if at all) from having been documented in warts and all fashion on the notorious D.U.I. video comp of early 80's L.A. underground fare, a goodly bit of this sounds like a precursor to much of the detuned sludge rock that would become rife during the latter half of the decade via the likes of The Butthole Surfers or Crust on one end and labels like Amphetamine Reptile on the other; with the bemused nihilism and atonal caterwaul of Flipper being the best period touchstone for what's transpiring here.

Note: Megaupload link coming shortly, as they killed the last one, presumably thinking it was actually documenting "a severed head in a bag" from the Mexican drug war or something! I'll abbreviate it next time...
