this website they also put an LP, and describe the a-side Cost Too Much as Gang of Four style post-punk. That seems quite a stretch to me, but it's possible my ears work differently than others. Great cover art. There are mammals they have not told you of... It's all so cryptic, sasquatch chupacabra four armed guitarists. Just how many mammals have they not told us about?

here. On the whole Out of Line is a more elaborate flesh out of the noisy post-punk Mofungo sound. According to Robert Sietsema in the Perfect Sound Forever article several durable classics appear here. 'Three,' 'FBI Informant' (later known as 'He Sold His Soul'), and 'Migrant Assembly Line Workers.' Watermark and Happy Man are my picks. Lyrically there's enough left leaning political sloganeering to keep the flames of discontent alive against the man, or woman as the case may be.

An extensive history of Liberté? and A State of Mind written by Robbie (vocals) can be found on Kill Your Pet Puppy here. Along with the A State of Mind / Chumbawamba split 7" and A State of Mind's EP. Mutant Sounds has the more experimental Cyrnai - Charred Blossoms done by band member Carolyn Fok. I also included an A State of Mind poster reminiscent of Penis Envy. That I must have picked up at one of their shows.

I should read the run-out groove on my records more often, as this here's another porky prime cut. Though that's probably the least exciting thing about this record. Mutant Sounds has their Secure tape here. Just as the mutants say you'll find shades of the Pop Group and Gang of Four on this top shelf, post-punk classic.

here. So read that and listen to this 7". When Mofungo was still in their no wave type mode. Should anyone want to spill out any of their earlier über obscure recordings i.e. Elementary Particles, or End of the World, I'm all ears. Until then check out this Tape # 1 stuff on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6D1owTEvv0
Frankfurt, Germany. White Walls menaces then drops deposits of no wave sax skronk, while Cut a Slice is a bit of sarcastic quirk, and Toto Lotto unleashes the furious frenzy. Mutant Sounds has a mostly live Toto Lotto tape here. Brotbeutel has more info and dead links here.

"Stutter started as an improvisational music collective based out of Louisville, Kentucky" You can read the whole story here. On this EP the music will delight your ears with jagged post-punk kickassery, and the sounds of quasi no wave. Funded in part by an art grant. Many of the pieces here were used in conjunction with artistic devices in other mediums, just read the back cover. Mutant Sounds has their Broken Snakes LP from 1990 here.

The Child Molesters and the Los Angeles Free Music Society you can figure something strange is happening here. They do a Dylan cover that by the end shows signs of art dementia. However it's Lubow's catchy phaser driven Forsaking All Others that always leaves me wanting to hear their EP.

I included scans of the inner sleeve with more info on the band, and some press clippings. Seems they were compared to Bow Wow Wow quite a bit in the local press. Which is fair I suppose, but their sound has just as much in common with irregular art outsiders like The Del-Byzanteens.
Animal Dance also have a standout track on the Radio Tokyo Tapes 2 comp, I put up here.
I found this video via the great Scavenged Luxury blog. Where they sort of pooh-poohed it. True they changed their sound, but me likes!

here. They also put a single Wally! Wally! / The Very Last Record from Gold Star. That I'm dying to hear, anyone?

La Loora - This Is Not The Use They Are Longing For So They Gonna Be Fascists (1982) N'Avez Vous Rien De Mieux (1983)
Their next release a mini-LP. Was released by Gudrun Gut of Malaria!. A slightly better produced affair, which still has their uncompromising unique sound. Finally from the first LP gets redone, and they do an interesting epic cover of Iggy Pop's Tiny Girls. Amidst plenty of other great sounds.
Kill your pet puppy has the Berlin Atonal split with Psychic TV. Mutant sounds has Reseda Revel from 1986. There's also a myspace.
These records really need a proper reissue. You'd be a fool not to hear why.
