Secret Mammals - Cost Too Much / Preachin' (1981)

Secret Mammals from Washington DC. Primitive guitar rock with nervous punk-wave vocals is what you'll find here. According to 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?

  2. Oh my! Quality stuff as usual. There's a track of theirs on a Homework comp ('She Likes to Run'), or at least I think its them anyway. Might be from that album you mentioned, as there's scant info online. Have you heard it? Can send it over if you wish...
