here's an MX-80 Sound compilation

a weird ol' band that no-one seems to give a damn about anymore but who actually rule. they hung around on Ralph Records in the post-punk era when the Residents were doing their best stuff. they still make albums and stuff too. everything on this compilation is from their earliest days, I haven't delved deeper so far.
1MX-80 Sound
Out of the Tunnel "Frankie I'm Sorry" - creaky mournful skronk rock
2MX-80 Sound
Hard Attack "Crushed Ice" - silly blurcore, basically the same note over and over again
3MX-80 Sound
Big Hits "Till Death Do Us Part" - doom beefheart
4MX-80 Sound
Crowd Control "Promise of Love" - floaty dream-pop jazz
5MX-80 Sound
Hard Attack "PCBs" - just a really stupid song that makes me laugh everytime
6MX-80 Sound
Big Hits "Boy Trouble, Girl Trouble" - perfect partner track to the previous, one big riff session (the same riff)
7MX-80 Sound
Out of the Tunnel "Follow That Car" - a rock song which owns
8MX-80 Sound
Crowd Control "Cover to Cover" - pretty post-rock idea
9Various Artists
Subterranean Modern "Possessed" - gentle harmonics switching over to hard riffing whenever they fancy. very long lyric sheet on this one lol
10MX-80 Sound
Big Hits "You Turn Me On" - savaging other people's pop music with punk rock
11MX-80 Sound
Hard Attack "Man on the Move" - the "roadblock of sound" is hilarious
12MX-80 Sound
Crowd Control "Night Rider" - so many of these songs are about cars i know. this one is skronk city, full of tension and a few guitar hero moments
13MX-80 Sound
Hard Attack "Civilised / Demeyes" - a mini masterpiece of inanity, trashes modern conveniences like all post-punk should
14MX-80 Sound
Out of the Tunnel "Man in the Box" - I'MMMMMMMMMMMMMM THE MAAAAAAN... IN THE BOX. mega paranoid punk rock song, a super flippant guitar sound comes in half way through and makes me smile
15MX-80 Sound
Crowd Control "Face of the Earth" - saving the best for last
