Grotus "Edward Abbey/Cash Cow" 7"

Another one of rarely played records. In fact when I first bought it I have listened to it quite a bit, but it somehow always slipped from the listening line in next 15+ years. That is not strange since this is kinda industrial music and that's not my cup of tea (well-coffee, since I rarely drink tea too). Here and here you can find more extensive info on the band and I'll give you just a few words. They were from San Francisco, USA and this record is one of their first outputs (if not the first) their music was mainly labeled as industrial, but there were lot of other musical genres present and they became quite popular among wide circles of music fans and their second LP came out on Alternative Tentacles. After that, during post-Nirvana major label craze for indie bands they were signed by London Records which was very short affair since they were not actually "hit" material. They disbanded in 1997 and their website describes major label stunt like this:
The band encourages all other groups to think carefully before going to major labels, and to really figure who can and will do what for you. Trust no one!
BTW - this single was benefit for Bay Area Earth First!

Ackkk. Used to have this 45. Wish I still did. I seem to recall some cool inserts. DK / political/ funny type stuff.

@ Sean; Here I am one month late, heh. My record only has insert in the form of a sticker of warning sign for corrosive danger with their name.

Hello. Can you please upload the Edward Abbey 7" again? Thank you!

Malisha Old 666 said...

Sorry, but I haven't checked blog for quite a while. Will upload it again as soon as I find where's the dvd with the rip of it. It could take a couple of days though as I'm always out of time for everything. Cheers.
