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.

Hey, Where's the Beaver?

Found this tape in the same box I dug out Son of Sam. There’s a few more treasures on cassette that I'll probably be posting up, or not…short attention span, yeah!

The Hugh Beaumont Experience was a punk rock band from Fort Worth, Texas. The band's original lineup was Brad Stiles on vocals, Tommie Duncan on guitar, Clay Carlisle on bass, & Carter Kolba on drums. HBE was formed in 1980 by friends from Fort Worth Country Day School. They toured throughout Texas in 1981-82, including dates with MDC & The Dead Kennedys.

Their journey was short-lived.  The HBE had broken up by 1983. They released just one 7" called Cone Johnson & this cassette called Virgin Killers. (This material was re-released in 1993 on Existential Vacuum Records as the live side that shared the flipside with a studio recording session with Bob Mould of Hüsker Dü.) By the time this live cassette was recorded at the Bowie Theater in Ft. Worth, Jeff  'King' Coffee (best know as the drummer from the Butthole Surfers) was handling the drums.

  2. Throbbing Cattle was also a fanzine published by King Coffey. I have one issue of it, which (not coincidentally) features the HBE.
