GutterballThis is another one of our Vinyl Junkyard editions at the Little Lighthouse. In Vinyl Junkyard specials I play almost entire LPs that I found dirt cheap somewhere laying in some bargain bin at a record store. This time we have two more albums from the nineties. Nineties were a time where LPs were being phased out on the market in favor of CDs. Still, some important record also saw vinyl versions. Today we have the first album for Gutterball and The Fall-Outs compilation album Here I Come and other Hits. Gutterball was a supergroup consisting of Steve Wynn (ex Dream Syndicate), Bryan Harvey and Johnny Hott (from House of Freaks), Stephen McCarthy (Long Ryders) and Bob Rupe (Silos). It was formed at the moment where Wynn’s solo career was not performing so well, House of Freaks were critically acclaimed, but also failed to chart in the post Nirvana era. Long Ryders and Silos broke apart, so the quintet went into the recording studio over in Richmond with a lot of good songs and great new-found energy. The resulting album was astonishing. Fall-Outs had a string of perfect singles in the late 80s and Estrus Records put them all together in ’93 on a great compilation record.

Gutterball – Top of The Bill;
Gutterball – Trial Separation Blues;
Gutterball – Lester Young;
Gutterball – Motorcycle Boy;
Gutterball – One By One;
Gutterball – When You Make Up Your Mind;
Gutterball – Think It Over
Gutterball – Preacher And The Prostitute;
The Fall-Outs – Here I Come;
The Fall-Outs – Brothers;
The Fall-Outs – Like Me;
The Fall-Outs – I’m Going Home;
The Fall-Outs – Greed;
The Fall-Outs – Dug My Grave;
The Fall-Outs – Another Fad;
The Fall-Outs – She’s Out There;
The Fall-Outs – Bury My Body;
The Fall-Outs – Made My Bed Gonna Lie In It;
The Fall-Outs – Brainiac;
The Fall-Outs – Scarecrow;
The Fall-Outs – Our Company;
The Fall-Outs – You Just Can’t Win.

Mouthful of ViolenceThis is one a Vinyl Junkyard edition of our show. In Vinyl Junkyard specials I play almost entire LPs that I found dirt cheap somewhere laying in some bargain bin at a record store. Usually the stuff comes from The Blue Arrow Records in Cleveland. This time we have two albums from the nineties. Nineties were a time where LPs were being phased out on the market in favor of CDs. Still, some important record also saw vinyl versions and today we bring you Mouthful of Violence by Big Trouble House and Moontime by Anastasia Screamed. These are not just some random albums from the era, but also some of my favorite records ever. It’s a real pleasure to introduce them to you, since the bands and the records went fairly unnoticed at the time and are often missed by the critics too. Big Trouble House are from Minneapolis, lead by the guitar player Phil Harder. After the band failed to leave much mark on the scene, he moved on into making music videos. Anastasia Screamed were from Boston. They were lead by Chick Graning. This band also failed to make much fuss on the scene, so he formed Scarce which became almost famous with their single All Sideways, but Graning suffered from an aneurysm and had a bad case of amnesia. Scarce reformed recently.

Big Trouble House – Union Feed Grain Mill
Big Trouble House – Mouthful of Violence
Big Trouble House – Cut Him Down;
Big Trouble House – Gal In Black;
Big Trouble House – President Nixon’s Grandpa;
Big Trouble House – Let’s Go To Hell;
Big Trouble House – Push;
Big Trouble House – Black River;
Big Trouble House – Valley of Rin Tin Tin;
Anastasia Screamed – Out Of The Light;
Anastasia Screamed – Stand By;
Anastasia Screamed – One Deep Breath;
Anastasia Screamed – She Must;
Anastasia Screamed – Dead In The Grass;
Anastasia Screamed – 15 Seconds of 5 Days;
Anastasia Screamed – Tricked Into Feel;
Scarce – All Sideways.

But they are also a band on their own and The On and Ons Calling is their new record. The band is consisted of former members of Zeros, Stems and Hoodoo Gurus. This also made me look up Hard-Ons.
