Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Black Humor

UPDATE: This file has been re-uploaded 08/09/2013. 
I also added a few more cover versions. Enjoy, NØ

I’ve been wanting to post this sucker for a while, just never got around to it. Well, here’s a Brumalian gift for you.

Love God Love One Another was released on Fowl records, Dan Houser’s record label in a run of 1000. The covers were hand made, designed by creatively altering existing album covers. The record & individual cover art were well received. Black Humor played about four shows in San Francisco & then soon self-destructed.

I spoke to Dan Houser about this time last year. He was living in Germany & expecting a baby any day. He said there were two labels interested in re-releasing Love God Love One Another, but as he honestly quipped, it ‘was all talk’.

Black Humor - Love God Love One Another, Fowl Records 003, 1982.

UPDATE: For those who are interested, here are two five more versions of the cover to this slab o' vinyl. If anyone else would like to send in their covers, I'll post them all up here.



  1. I read on the Black Humor myspace that they were encouraging people to send in pictures of their LP covers... I wonder if anyone did it? Mine is a defaced cover of "Wildest Organ in Town" by Billy Preston.

  2. I'll check it out. Mine is Swamp Dogg Rat On!. I've seen several others (painted beyond recognition & Beach Boys defaced with marker). It would be great to see a collection of as many as possible.

  3. I wanted to ask if it always the Swamp Dogg cover which was the basis cover, but reading these comments.... well, it really would be great to see as many covers as possible

  4. urbanology,
    Thanks for your interest.
    It appears they just used whatever old album covers they had available & then altered them in various styles.

  5. BLACK HUMOR reish comes out this month! Get it here:

    Superior Viaduct is a San Francisco-based label that focuses on archival releases and reissues of Bay Area bands from the 70's and 80's. Upcoming releases: BLACK HUMOR, NOH MERCY, TUXEDOMOON, GERMAN SHEPHERDS.

  7. I have known Danny Houser since 1969 and can't believe I do not have this record in any of its forms. I talked to Danny yesterday. He is living in Texas and doing well, but he has become rather reclusive.
