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.
