This is another one of our vinyl junkyard episodes, in which we play some old vinyl records which I found dirt cheap collecting dust in a dollar bin. This time we have two records which were sold back in the seventies as souvenirs at the decadent Max’s Kansas City rock club in New York City. Both records feature studio recordings of bands that were regulars at the club and includes Wayne County, Pere Ubu, The Fast, Suicide and Philip Rambow. The first volume from 1976 is definitely stronger, but the second one from 1977 is a fun listen because the best known name on it is Philips Rambow of The Winkies “fame”. So other bands are even less known. It’s always fun to take a break from current stuff with some old scratchy records and I hope you dig it as much as I do.
