What do the Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments, Girly Machine, Pet UFO,
Clay, and the Haynes Boys have in common? They have all recorded for
both Datapanik and Burnt Sienna Records. Visit the site of Tony Painter's
label for a complete catalog.
This Ohio city's homepage features a detailed timeline of Cleveland's
rock history by John Petkovic of Cobra Verde/Death of Samantha/Guided
by Voices fame. Featured bands include the New Bomb Turks, Pere Ubu
and Peter Laughner. Also home of the very cool CLE 'zine.
Mike Rep and the Quotas do the best Roky Erikson cover that I've ever
heard with their version of "Creature with the Atom Brain" on the Bumped
by Karaoke CD. (Well, Entombed's "Night of the Vampire" is way up there
too.) But do yourself a favor and look up the man behind the original.

At one time the site contained a biography,
soundbites, lyrics, tour dates and a cheesy message board. Not much is still viewable.
Gaunt: articles about the death of singer Jerry Wick. RIP.
They reissued the Gaunt "Jim Motherfucker" single and released the
"Sound of Poverty" Anyway singles CD comp. This is in addition to a
New Bomb Turks 7", the reissue of Anyway's Cowtown Vol. II 7" comp.
(featuring NBT) and many other punk and garage records. A very cool
label with an excellent web site (but Roger Mah of Brain Transplant
'zine and record label says they'll rip you off...)
Before the Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments, Ron House was in the
band Great Plains with Paul Nini. Paul's label Lower Records has a
high-quality live cassette of Great Plains from 1985 called "Live
at the Electric Banana" for only $5 postpaid.
