Sticky Fridge - Flight One (1984)


I recently posted the band The Walkman and it was more popular than I expected and people asked if I know anything more about the band.

I don't.

Like the rest of you I wish they had more recordings than they actually do so this record here might satisfy some of you. 

It sounds almost exactly like The Walkman. They are from the same country as The Walkman and they were playing around the same time but, as far as I know, they have nothing at all to do with The Walkman. No shared members or any other connection. 

I'm pretty sure this is the only thing Sticky Fridge ever released but I hope I'm wrong.

 If I told you this was another Walkman song you'd believe it.

10 Dollar Mic - Rising Sun (1998)


There was a compilation from 1998 called "Listen Up Sonny" that was the first release by a small label called Tough Guy Productions from Keizer, Oregon which started out with three tracks from this band 10 Dollar Mic who were from Corvallis, Oregon. 

(Pardon my dangling participles) 


The three songs from the compilation are on this CD which is their only release.

Trivia question:

Who was the lead singer for Skankin' Pickle?

Most people would say "Bruce Lee! Mike Park!" But the original 'lead singer' for Skankin' Pickle was Mr. Clean - Mike Mattingly. When Skankin' Pickle split up and the band members went their separate ways to form other bands like The Chinkees, 78 RPMs, and the Bruce Lee Band,  Mike Mattingly started his own project called Neosoreskin which was an experimental ska-inspired band. Chances are that if you're not already a Skankin' Pickle fan you may find this band hard to digest at first.

 They put out three albums before Mr. Clean fell off a roof and broke his back whilst working as a chimney sweep.

Gangbusters - Sounded Good at the Time

 Gangbusters was one of California's first straight-forward ska bands. There were lots of other bands who played some ska but very few bands had a setlist that was almost all ska. The Untouchables, the Skeletones, the Uptones, No Doubt, etc. - they are known as the big California ska bands before the third wave hit but realistically ska was only a part of their set. Aside from Let's Go Bowling and The Donkey Show most of these 'big names' weren't full-time ska bands.

 If you know Gangbusters at all it's probably because of the song 'Bad Attitude' from the first "California Skaquake" compilation. 

When I hear bands like this I wonder why they are not one of the big names and I think it comes down to how much music they made available to take home. Gangbusters recorded a lot of their music but the only thing they ever put out for people to listen to at home or in the car or to share with their friends was one demo tape called "Vibes".

 I never found a copy of "Vibes" but around 2007 somebody sent me the MP3s of "Vibes" - or so they said. As it turns out the demo I was sent was just four songs that the band made available on their MySpace page and somebody took the time to do a mock-up of the cover using a picture from the MySpace page.

I fell for it because, first of all, I never knew what the demo tape inlay card looked like or if it even had one, and secondly, I had no way of knowing what songs were on the "Vibes" demo.

Recently I was looking for something else on eBay and this CD appeared. I had recently heard about it because one of my Facebook friends asked about it. I snagged it and I was really impressed with it. It is not an official release but a compilation of demos and live performances put together by the band on CDR.

The best part is that the "Vibes" demo tape (the four songs from MySpace) that I got years ago has three songs that do not appear on this compilation. I included that (with the fake cover) in this download.
