Various Artists ‎– "Unzipping The Abstract (Bands Of The Manchester Musicians Collective)" (MMC Records MMC1) 1980

As Promised here is the second compilation, from the Manchester Musicians Collective,and this does include The Marvelously Monikered, Bathroom Renovations; featuring Armitage Shanks and someone called Bidet?
More of the same wonderfully amateur and ambitionless outsider punk.What more can I say to recommend this collection of sub-genius.
Its almost as good as its companion comp, 'A Manchester Collection'.
As the slogan on the back of the sleeve says, 'File under: Only a bit bleak and arty'.
I'll just say it again: The Bathroom Renovations.
That's the kind of band we should all want to be in? Isn't it?
