The Third Secret

This Post was re-uploaded 01/07/2014. 
Enjoy, NØ.

Nathan Nothin' here!

Was posting all the many connections to House of Faith & Bart Thurber so I decided I would put up some music that Bart played on. I picked three tracks from Whipping Boy's third album  The Third Secret of Fatima.

Whipping Boy was a punk band from Palo Alto, California. The band formed in 1982, made up of students from Stanford University. Their first release was The Sound of No Hand Clapping. Their sound featured lightning-fast melodies, tight, chunky rhythms, & violently incoherent vocals. They espoused a radically
anti-government view. The band enjoyed moderate success, & a national tour in 1983 was capped by the release of the psychedelic MuruMuru. This abrupt change in style was not welcomed by Whipping Boy's fanbase. After several personnel changes & the release of another record, The Third Secret of Fatima,
the band broke up in 1986.

Over the course of their last two albums, WHIPPING BOY had moved from straight-forward punk into something a little less defined. The Third Secret of Fatima still has an air of mystery about it. The vocals have a number of influences, inlcuding BIRTHDAY PARTY, VIRGIN PRUNES, & PSYCHIC TV, but these don't get in the way of the band's changing progressions.

Incendiary front man Eugene Robinson went on to front the avant-garde noise-rock band OXBOW.
