Voice Crack really scratch the itch with an early SPK vibe. Agog gives a seven minute long tour de force of sonic manipulation. Appi distorts rhythm and voice. Phauss search for gold through a myriad of effects. Gum take you to a strange electro swamp. The Nachtluft track is much less jarring than anything else I've heard by them. The booklet is also included.

Lead by the original idiosyncratic stylings of Jim Skafish. Skafish began infecting the Chicago area with strange punk new wave sounds in February of 1976. Their early recordings were complied on What's This 1976 - 1979
The second Skafish LP seemed tame, and disappointingly normal. So it was interesting find out that, the songs they first recorded for it were rejected. Being deemed to weird to be released by the record label. Hopefully those recordings will come out soon. Read the whole story at the Skafish website
Link removed. Re-release in the works. You can still hear Sink or Swim and others at Skafish audio.
