Nervous Gender - "Music from Hell" (Subterranean Records SUB21) 1981


To get back to the californian/los Angeles Free Music Society thread, after the inexplicable reposting of two Symboter Albums; we have Brad Laners(Steaming Coils/Prostate Gland Massagers/LAFMS) early appearance as part of the infamous Nervous Gender.

The first time I posted this album I got a DCMA take down notice,then a member of the band e-mailed me telling me that it had nothing to do with any member of Nervous Gender!
So here it is in its reposted form......ladies and gentlefolk, I bring you Music from Hell:

Near perfect, unhinged minimal synth punk from the minimal synth punk capital of the world, San Francisco. This group had a ten year old drummer, a pre-requisite for greatness in any musical sphere. Then you got the sublimely named Dinah Cancer guesting on one of the tracks.
I suspect a severe Screamers influence was endemic in the formation of this nasty little collective, which is understandable; the Screamers being one of thee perfect Punk groups ever.
All this, coupled with the recorded live straight to cassette quality and you have a definitive Synth Punk Classic.

(Tracks B1 to B5 performed live in Traetion Gallerie May 30 1981.
The entire contents of this album were recorded on a Toshiba RT-8200a portable cassette recorder and a Sankyo STD-1700 cassette deck. Our most outrageous thanks to Mr Mike Fox for his fidelity recouperation tactics. This album was recorded and mixed in a span of 36 hours, mistakes and all).

The band's web site helpfully points out that Beelzebub Youth is often mistakenly identified as a separate band, but was really only the name of the tracks on the second side
