In light of Charles Gocher's untimely passing, here is a live set from the Sun City Girls. Info says San Francisco 1993 and that sounds about right, I haven't ID'd all of these tracks yet but one is a stellar cover of the Thinking Fellers Union Local 282's song "Hive".

May your spirit continue its hellacious ways, CG.

Legendary Pink Dots - Chemical Playschool 3/4

For people who might have missed this, here are two more early Legendary Pink Dots tapes... this is my very favorite LPD release! Highly recommended!

Chemical Playschool 3/4 was originally a double 90-minute tape, just like 1/2. Released in 1983, the tapes represent a real creative high point for the Dots. When it was reissued on CD (in the mid-90's) one track was left off and others were edited, this version restores over 20 minutes of music! Tracks were taken from the CD where possible, otherwise they are from the original tapes.

Here's Volume 3 side a

Volume 3 side b

Cyrnai was in the San Francisco punk band Crucifix, and later played in the decidedly post-punk Trial. In the mid-80's she released a string of fascinating tapes and one EP. Here is the second tape, much more rhythmic than the first one (which will be coming soon, along with more Crawling With Tarts).

My apologies for such a delay between posts, I have been busy in the real world.
