yay!. I was obsessed with the Very Small catalog when I was high school. This was a transition period of coming out of boring old punk rock and trying to find something with the same spirit but with more creativity. I listened to the Very Small "Vinyl Retentive" compilation constantly, especially the weirdo art band side with False Sacrament and Schlong. I can leave behind most of the stupid lyrics, but Schlong was great- up there with Zorn's Naked City! I especially love their constant mangling of covers.

I always wondered what the hell happened to them...just dropped off.

Great post! I lived in the Bay Area for about a decade and loved the creative scene out there--always wondering why it never seemed to make it to the East Coast. Three Day Stubble anyone???

Schlong is reuniting for a handful of West Coast shows in March (I think). They'll be touring with their pals Mother Load (also reunited). And I believe most of Schlong's catalog is still available via Very Small Records. I still spin Fishbooty (1995), Poop Loops (1994) and Waxy Yellow Build-Up (1992). Their music has aged well--although the band was always at their unpredictable best drunk onstage in front of their drunk fans.

Schlong along with the False Prophets played a crappy little bar called Nerri's Place on Staten Island in the early 90's. It was an amazing show. I have the entire recording of them performing Fleetwood Macs "Rumors" album live at WFMU.It was recorded a day or two after the S.I. show. I couldn't believe how talented these guys were and the dives they were playing.

I recorded a video of Schlong in Kalamazoo, MI (94-ish?)and during their Schlongness some dude starts tossing stuffed animals at the band and then my camera plopped off. If anyone wants a video copy, get in touch and we’ll work something out i.e I’d trade it for a schlong beer mug
Oh yea, also from that same show I recorded the Gern Blandsten band One By One and I have some old Nuisance shit somewhere.

I always wondered what happened to those crazy mutant schlong desert guys. Thanks for the info. Those guys were friends of a college roomate of mine in Santa Cruz, and even played a show in our living room once! It was a blast. We had enticed them to play with the promise of free beer and free....oh wait, this is moderated isnt it; never mind- just free beer. Anyway I always kind of dug them. Back then, I was into any music that was fast, aggressive and/or heavy, and they were certainly fast and aggressive- and pretty much different from any band I had ever heard.
