I-25 - various artists (1988)



An old buddy from Las Cruces just posted this compilation from 1988 on his Soundcloud. It includes AOS and a one-off project I was in called Ferdinand and Imelda's Ragtime Band (with Grant from Choke) Lots of variety from the spectrum of mid-eighties college underground styles and future members of Vague Choir, & Jonny Cats. Those of you who pay attention to posts here will recognize Gahenna Noy$ Choir, The Young Professionals, and Dynamo Stairs (still going strong almost 30 years later). Digitizing this has been on my to-do list for ages, so thanks to David Wheeler (of Studio 603) for this.
