Prostate Gland Massagers - "PGM" and "Songs Everybody Knows" (self-released") 1984

Prostate Gland Massagers- "PGM + Songs everybody knows"
Before the Steaming Coils were called....er.....The steaming Coils, they were called?.......thats right, The Prostate Gland Massagers.
Here we have the madness of the teenage mind  captured in all its inspired glory. This is the closest American equivalent of the UK DIY cassettes I have heard, and 'Songs Everybody Knows' includes the best ever version of Brit Metal classic, 'Paranoid';with an hilarious slowing down of the main riff hook that totally emasculates and de-rocks the rock anthem terminally.They also manage to de-funk "Play That Funky Music", which is something to celebrate.
It also includes probably the only cover of a Faust song ever; in fact there are two Faust covers,both from their least interesting album(Faust IV).The krautrock vibe ends it all,with an (cough)....Amon Duul II cover???? Not too many of those about either; obviously vociferous record collectors were the PGM's! 
A steaming cauldron of frothy creativity on overdrive. Love it loads.
