The Appliances (1980)



Here's a killer art punk / post punk EP with a synth! Hailing from Madison, Wisconsin. This was released in 1980 on their own Applied Sciances Music label. They would later change their name to Appliances-SFB. Their later stuff is available at CD Baby

  1. I bought a used copy of the later LP when I was in High School. I think I had them confused with SPK :-/ The song 'Captain Nemo-Freud (and 1st leutenant alkaloid)' was pretty good. I saw a copy recently at 2nd avenue records and was amused to note an early Butch Vig production or engineering credit.

  4. Bill and Ed Feeny performed with members of Killdozer and the Tar Babies just a few hours ago billed as Tardozer-SFB. The venue? The Wisconsin Historical Society Museum!
