Urang Otan (1981)

Stupendous postpunk mutant-funk sounds out of NYC. Sharing some the same musically curious odd sensibilities as contemporaries Mofungo, Material, Lizzy Mercier Descloux, V-Effect, etc. It takes a whole group of talented freaks to make a record this cool, it's a keeper!

Busload of Nuns - Red All Over (1982)

New wave / art rock out of Boston. The A-side is brilliant with the art-wave lament of "Work Song" and a deadpan wave cover in "Stayin' Alive". The B-side isn't really my thing though.

My 3 Sons - Starving Artist / In the Beginning (1984)

New Jersey's My 3 Sons play a bit of the experimental noise punk, reminiscent of No Trend or Flipper.

No Aid - Charlie Wutz / TV 06131/701 (1980)

Rejoice freaks, here's a truly Dada inspired minimal / no wave trip of the Neue Deutsche Welle perspective. Complete with the headache guitar tone, thumpy bass, hiccup vocalizing, and some surprisingly friendly synth sounds.

The Wise Men - Knowledge / Lost in Action (1983)

A straight up classic of the English postpunk scene, produced by John McGeoch of Magazine, and Siouxsie fame. The A-side is as gritty and dark, as it is full of great melodies. The B-side is a moody almost psychedelic ballade.

The Nice Men - Senile Youth / I Am Wood (1981)

Super catchy English postpunk, "I Am Wood" is an especially awesome song, it's like the best thing The Monochrome Set never wrote. I included their first single from no longer forgotten music as the link is dead. Be sure to check out The Nice Men on Facebook!

Pope Paul Pot - Adventures in Plastic T.V. Land (1981)

Utterly deranged Residents style experiments from San Francisco. Mr. Paul Pot is still at it today with the Happy Clams. More info on this E.P. here. "Plastic T.V. Land on Acid" may make you lament mother's day, but "This is Your Leader" is prolly my favorite of the bunch, making Snakefinger sound pop in comparison.
