Hello, all! Today's mystery LP-under-the-cassettes won't be easy to recognize, because so little is showing and the image is turned sideways -- so, I'll give you a hint: that's a bandaid floating on the upper right. Any guesses? Fabulous prizes await.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/18/18 12:00pm listener james from westwood:

Good Tuesday, Tony and all!

Just arriving here from tomorrow where I thought you'd had your show yesterday. Ah ... never mind.

Heya, Sem and βrian! You're making my head spin....
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 12:04pm βrian:

Say, is that an oblate spheroid on the cover?

Kevyn Dymond (just on) sounds like a lapsed progger to me.
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 12:19pm Tony Coulter:

Stay tuned for a krautrock cover, coming up next
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 12:20pm Tony Coulter:

PS: There will be more krautrock covers at the end of the show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/18/18 12:23pm Yvang:

Hello Tony and listeners! My partial guess about the LP is that it is from the eighties, given the colors.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/18/18 12:24pm Rich in Washington:

Wow. This might be the third Psi-Field song I have ever heard. Such an elusive, perhaps least prolific band I've ever been interested in. I've only heard tracks by them on a handful of comps.
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 12:25pm Tony Coulter:

Hiya, Yvang! You are right! It is from the '80s. It's a fairly well-known album by a U.S. new wave band.
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 12:26pm Tony Coulter:

@ Rich: Not sure they ever had any releases -- just lots of comp tracks.
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 12:27pm coelacanth:

not the go-gos, is it?

...Hey Tony and hissters
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 12:27pm coelacanth:

("vacation" or something like that)
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 12:28pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, hey, coelacanth! Not the Go-Gos, no -- but you're in the right ballpark!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/18/18 12:28pm JtotheK:

hi Tony! hi everyone. enjoyed the express cover.
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 12:29pm coelacanth:

i keep picturing the 3 dog night album with the bandaid on the front. goofy album cover.
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 12:30pm Tony Coulter:

Hey ho, JtotheK! Stay tuned for two more krautrock covers at the end of the show.

Twa Dios Under Paris (on now) =

One more hint about today's mystery LP artists: They know what boys like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/18/18 12:36pm JtotheK:

The Waitresses?
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 12:37pm coelacanth:

heh i almost said the motels
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 12:38pm Tony Coulter:

@ JtotheK: Yep, it's the Waitresses! Name the album, and you will be today's lucky winner.
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 12:41pm coelacanth∅:

the 80s new wave. not my favorite. but i was inundated with it, so i know a lot of those album covers and the absurd, if not detestable band images. i don't have the waitresses though. i think i'd come to my senses by then.
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 12:42pm Tony Coulter:

OK, I'll do the big reveal, then: It's 1983's "Bruiseology": www.discogs.com...
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 12:43pm Tony Coulter:

The Waitresses were really kind of a Tin Huey front band, and have their moments, imo.
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 12:46pm coelacanth∅:

yeah i had to look to see if maybe i did in fact buy "wasn't tomorrow wonderful" at the time.
so, how were they related to tin huey?
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 12:52pm Tony Coulter:

@ coelacanth∅: At least several Tin Huey members, including Chris Butler and Ralph Carney, were in the Waitresses and wrote most of the music.
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 1:08pm Tony Coulter:

This P.W.B. track reminds me of the Department Store Santas.
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 1:12pm Tony Coulter:

Bernard C. (on now) is a D.D.A.A. associate -- he has several releases on D.D.A.A.'s Illusion Productions label.

Hiya, Ike!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/18/18 1:18pm listener james from westwood:

That's only the second anti-Dutch diss track I've ever heard, but it was a good'un.
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 1:19pm Tony Coulter:

What, pray tell, was the other one?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/18/18 1:23pm ɛɨk:

Was it "The Dutch Have Weird Square Butts" by Aardvark Pie, Ltd.?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/18/18 1:23pm ɛɨk:

(I just completely made that up.)
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 1:23pm Tony Coulter:

Sounds like a hit to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/18/18 1:24pm ɛɨk:

Admit it, you guys just searched for some rare 7"s by Aardvark Pie, Ltd. on Discogs, didn't you?
  Tue. 9/18/18 1:26pm Dean:

The first, @ljfw, being John Dowie's?
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 1:26pm Tony Coulter:

Believe it or not, there was a '70s band called Hedgehog Pie ... close enough, no? www.discogs.com...
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 1:27pm Tony Coulter:

Ahoy there, Dean!
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 1:28pm Chris from DC:

Pleasantly surprised to find all this Ladd-Frith stuff on Bandcamp.
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 1:29pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Chris! Glad to hear it's still available in some format.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/18/18 1:31pm Yvang:

Lots of interesting stereo effects with this cassette.
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 1:33pm Tony Coulter:

Particularly this track!
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 1:37pm Sem:

Following right along from the kitchen w/ great aural pleasure.
FYI, Mhisster Tony.

Nice to know, Sssssssssssssssssem!
  Tue. 9/18/18 1:49pm Dean:

I heard SPK pre-'84 at Al's Bar in Los Angeles. The bassist wore gloves. At one point, they wielded a garage door spring affixed with a contact mic, then proceeded to smash beer bottles against it as shards flew into the audience. A crusty noise experience.
  Tue. 9/18/18 1:50pm Dean:

Looks like the show made it to cassette: https://www.discogs.com/SPK-Als-Bar/release/1436271
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 1:50pm Chris from DC:

This is great.

And chronicled on the WFMU blog: http://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/2012/05/spk-in-the-usa-part-two-at-the-russian-center-sf-april-17-1982.html
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 1:52pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: I had a similar experience with the Cramps -- though it was the audience that was breaking glasses, sending the pieces flying around.
  Tue. 9/18/18 1:53pm Dean:

My most vivid memory of the single Cramps show I attended is of a nearly nude Lux climbing the PA in high heels with a bottle of wine.
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 1:53pm Chris from DC:

There's a noise artist Kimberly who still sometimes does her act where she smashes fluorescent tube lights.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/18/18 1:54pm Webhamster Henry:

This is so 1984.
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 1:55pm Tony Coulter:

Hiya, Webham! Are We Not Hamsters?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/18/18 2:15pm Rich in Washington:

I remember Lux doing one of those PA high-climbing stunts at Portland's La Luna and nearly toppling the stack, to the point that Ivy dropped character and gave him a startled look and then just shaking her head, as if to say 'oh, that Lux!'.
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 2:25pm Tony Coulter:

NB: Yep, it's "Audio Leter," not "Audio Letter." Also, the trumpet player here is Lesli Dalaba, and the clarinetist is Paul Hoskin.
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 2:36pm Tony Coulter:

Tex Mirror H (on now) is In the Nursery–related
Avatar Tue. 9/18/18 2:47pm Chris from DC:

Yay!
