Here we have a collection of singles, out-takes, comp cuts, alternate versions, etc. from the band that Chris Tense & Dean Johnson - the original rhythm section of Poison Idea - formed after leaving "The Kings of Punk".
Not wandering far from the formula they subscribed to in that legendary band, they teamed up with a drunken howler named Peter & another hot-shit sausage-fingered six-string motherfucker named Ian on guitar.
In three short years they recorded 3 full-lengths & various singles - oh yeah - they were actually called "Mule" to begin with, but lost the rights to the "fake redneck" band from that farm town, er, collegiate bastion for rich kids known as Ann Arbor, MI.
While they may not be a name alot of people recognize, they had their moments in the (s)limelight.
This collection is somewhat spotty, but at the same time, these guys were definitely a "live party band" - you can hear it for sure - and I can attest to that as I saw them live in 1994 at the Paris Theater in downtown Portland.
After the show I decided to head over to Burnside Project for "one last run" and - as is par for the course - I ended up breaking my arm in the process. That's kind of how this band goes as well - always on the edge, and definnitely worth a listen or two.
If anybody has any other material from these guys, would you mind sending me a rip?
I got cleaned out of my vinyl collection of these guys a few years ago, thanks.
