Junk Drawer: Cassette Covers I Made In The 80s, Part Three

(Click either for bigger.)

Up top, that's my ticket stub for a Residents show I saw in London in 1983. I really love the juxtaposition of the Monkees and Psychic TV.

Dude, you are so lucky you got to see the Residents back in the day! Love your Cramps cover. I saw them in NYC in 1983 or 1984, I think at the Peppermint Lounge, although my recollection is not real clear.

Comradde PhysioProffe said...

Yeah, this was the show!

Never saw the Cramps, so I'm jealous right back at you!

I remember those days when it was all Fiedler! Fiedler! Fiedler! and Nero! Nero! Nero! all the time. You couldn't turn on your radio or television without the Boston Pops bassooning in your face. And whatever the hell Peter Nero did.

(Kidding, Nero fans! It's all good! In fact, 'Swonderful!)

Oh my goodness, Mister Bad Trash just doesn't know where to begin! Kind of like your old cars post, salivating with open jaw over every detail, launched into reminiscing time-trip, brain filled with comments, but not a one made it to a single keyboard button. I recognize most of these handcrafts from San Diego, thinking about UCSD, dual-cassette boom boxes, Tijuana, mausoleums (mausolea?) at midnight, and universal annoyance of the general public. All my vinyl and cassettes in cellar, no turntable, no tape heads, and Bad Trash living in tidy ol' Germany where all good trash is sent off to Romania or Poland, and anyway the best stuff all got blown up in the war. I'm jonesing hard for thrift shops and loving these posts! Keep 'em coming, P. Djarum.

Peteykins said...

Mr. Bad Trash yay! I'm sure at least one of these was taped from a record of yours. Also, do you recognize the "Goo" tape? That's the "demolition dub" tape!

Speaking of something in your comment, I've always been tempted to write about "Babyland", but I guess I better not.

MrBadTrash said...

"GOO" from the Residents' Goosebump? I remember the cover, but the contents are more than hazy! I really need to scare up a working cassette deck now and unearth my old demolition dub tapes. Hefty Scrapps' favorite demolition dub was always the Rudy Ray Moore remix of the "Eat Out More Often" album. "Dolomite said bitch."

Babyland? Some things are better left off the interwebs!

Peteykins said...

I think the "Goo" tape may have the Van Halen "Demolition Dub" on it.

But, yeah, Babyland... you're right, of course.

Remember hiding from security guards up a tree?!!
