Salted City is comped on Killed By Death Vol. 3 and is the winner here. Snotty punk rock that sounds very very US punk to me. What do I know about these snail lovers? Nothing. So now it’s up to you to prove to all of us what a great punk historian you are. Comment away!
Label: Sky Dog
Sad to see that nobody has posted a comment on this band in more than 1/2 year. Not trying to prove anything (no, I didn’t know 84 Flesh before finding them here), I’ve done a fast research and didn’t find much. Still, there’s some info here:
Not much: line-up and discography. By the way, they list the 45 as released in March 1978. Then they had 2 tracks (Stooges’ Dirt + Flesh kaput) in the “La creme de Skydog” comp (8/78). They were called ‘1984’ in 1977 (there’s a pic of them in P. Eudeline’s book ‘L’aventure punk’, 1977, where the singer Henri Flesh is mentioned a couple of times)
Merci beaucoup par les tubes
The art work was done by Kiki and/or Loulou Picasso from Bazooka (see http://undreground.canalblog.com/albums/bazooka/index.html) and it’s really beautiful!
Bazooka was a group of punk graphic designers. They also did record covers for Asphalt Jungle.
Two good, solid songs. It’s a shame they got lost in the fray. Salted City is a favorite of mine from the KBD LPs.
