No matter what folks say or write about how great the Helen (Erich) Keller record is. You’ll never get it until you listen to it. As you might hear it’s not some gutter punks fooling around in the studio. These guys have some real talent and knows exactly what they’re doing. It could’ve resulted in some so so jumping on the bandwagon record but no no they manage to crank out the exact right feeling. I wonder what they wanted to achieve with this release? 200 copies pressed with a white stamped sleeve. Did they just want to hand it out to friends and family to show off that they could play punk too?
Ryan has digged out some info:”The “band” was the demented brainchild of a man who mainly produced commercial jingles for a living, Norman Durkee. Some of Seattle’s persistent rain had obviously soaked through his skull and settled on his brain, and a “speed punk” concept developed. Friends and acquaintances from the “studio scene” were brought in to play.”
