Treepeople - Guilt, Regret, Embarrassment

Label: Toxic Shock
Year: 1991

Here's the longer CD version of the first Treepeople album (longer than the vinyl version that is), so you can dork out for twice as long as before. Nice.
If you like Built To Spill or The Halo Benders, then you might already know this band, or recognize the sounds. If you lived anywhere that was covered by the static-y sounds of a local college radio station circa 1990-1992 then you might already know this band also. They seemed to garner a fair amount of play with college guys who weren't popular with girls, so if you were alone and masturbating a lot at a university around this time, you might know this band. If you like a mix of Built To Spill, Dinosaur Jr, Monsula, Seaweed, and later Husker Du, then you might already know this band.
If you still have no idea who they are, then I am sorry, but I can do no more for you this evening. I tried, but now I'm tired and no longer have the will to carry on. Good luck.

No Smiths cover on this one, but there are both David Bowie and Butthole Surfers tracks on here if that floats your boat.

Maybe a bit off topic, but this version kind of sucks compared to the repress/remaster from K Records that doesn't have the bonus crap tacked on to the end.
