New Links #2: "Helen Butte" vs. Masonna Pussy Badsmell!

Hello Droogs,

Continuing: TLASILA's second full-length album, "Helen Butte" vs. Masonna Pussy Badsmell. Recording began in June 1994 at the Studio, Miami (two live tracks recorded at Churchill's, the infamous Little Haiti nightspot, were also included), and was completed in October. (Note: many of the album's backing tracks were re-edited versions of cut-ups I'd completed in 1985 for Peach of Immortality's 'E' Making of Salisbury epic!) Bulb Records were originally scheduled to issue the album around Thanksgiving '94, but inter-label rancor scuttled the release. Eventually, Full Contact, a short-lived offshoot of the soon-to-be-doomed Fifth Column logo cabal, dumped the disc into the nation's cut-out bins rather later than planned: 1996. Fuck. We suffered quite a lot of blowback in those early years...

Anyhow, this album is way, way gone, and now you can go full truck stop on it at your leisure.

New Links #1: 30-Minuten Männercreme!

Hello Again,

New links, as promised earlier. The first will lead you to TLASILA's debut album, 30-minuten männercreme. I wrote and produced 30-mm from August 1991 (when "Shot Your Mouth Off" began to take shape) to October 1993, the point at which I seriously began pruning the 80-odd tracks that had been assembled. Forty ultimately made the final, befouled cut. The band was just me at this early juncture, but some of the names that would later become familiar were hovering: Rat Bastard mixed eight of the 40 tracks, Bill Orcutt played guitar on two of the selections, and Oscar Perez, Tigra L'Trimm, and Tracie Phillips, all of whom appeared on the Doris Wishman-directed Spatters of a Royal Sperm long-form video, explode over several shrieking shards. I started a label called Love Is Sharing Pharmaceuticals out of my Miami Beach apartment, had 1,300 copies pressed in June 1994, and finally sold the last remaining handful in 2008. Scoop it up, dear friends, if it's rigorous aesthetic convulsion you prefer...
