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.

Who Shimmied the Bong?

 

Ann Magnuson & Kramer at it again, wafting up the sickening smell of rancid bongwater.

Double Bummer
is a double LP by Bongwater released in 1988. The four-sided album consists of psychedelic-era cover songs, sound collages, & originals in an abrasive &/or abstract, dense, sludgy experimental style often with dreamy cacophonous vocals by Magnuson (on songs like "Frank", a sardonic "tribute" to Frank Sinatra or "Dazed & Chinese", Led Zeppelin's "Dazed & Confused" sung in Cantonese.

Bongwater here is: Kramer – vocals, instruments, production, engineering; Ann Magnuson – vocals, instruments; Dave Rick – guitar; & David Licht – drums with friends Don Cherry – trumpet; & Gary Windo – tenor saxophone.
