Bastro - Rode Hard And Put Up Wet ep

Year: 1998

Label: Homestead

James Joyce carries with him a mysterious and terrible sway over my psyche, and his biddings are my only will. If he requests more Bastro, I have but no other recourse than to immediately post more Bastro. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven!

So here you are, the first Bastro release, an ep recorded as a duo, utilizing the teutonic services of a drum machine (oh, by the way, Big Black called...) and practicing the ebb and flow of early math rock. Like I said in the previous post, this band started out much more raw, aggresive, and clearly in awe of Big Black.

Back to James Joyce for a moment. If you have any interest in the history of contemporary music in Atlanta (i.e. late 80's and forward) check out his blog, chances are there are some bands on there that you either new from a house show in your old college town, or had no idea were from Atlanta.

Hey Big Black - Metal Urbain called, etc. Can any (postpunk, whatever) band use a drum machine and not sound the same?

I have no idea about the grocery store reference.

Any chance of a re-up of this? I only have a crappy cassette copy of this. Thanks!

C'est 1988 et non 1998, comme vous l'avez indiqué, pour cet excellent disque.
Bonne continuation !
