The piano interludes are someone taking a stab at Bartok's Rumanian Folk Dances. If anyone was wondering. Thanks for another great download. Though it's hard to top Chew Tobacco Rag.

When did the University of Hartford become the "University of WEST Hartford"?

Growing up in CT in that era, and digging punk and underground weirdness in general, I never heard of these guys.

Abercrombie

Da stili classici ma sobria che si basano su colori neutri e disegni di veramente stili occhio popping e innovativi che caratterizzano gli ultimi look per pezzi di tempo, si è sicuri di trovare proprio quello che serve per tutte le vostre occasioni importanti.

Wow, I had this album back in the 1980s. I notice full scans of album art at discogs.com (http://www.discogs.com/viewimages?release=4000417), including lyric sheet and track list on actual LP show a couple of differences from what you have here. First, missing(!?) here is a song called “Destruction” listed as starting side two. Second, the album lyric sheet and track list both show “World War III” coming before “War Dreams” (lyrics confirm you have the songs themselves labeled correctly). So, the WFMU upload incorrect, or is the album art incorrect on both of these problems, not matching what’s actually in the grooves?

Plague bass

I played bass on this album. The writer/singer/guitarist wrote all songs during his second year of college (he and drummer went to Hartford together, I was in a different college in upstate NY). During the summer of 83 he tells me he wrote a bunch of punk songs and wanted to make an album, so he and I practiced them in his basement for a few weeks on guitar and bass. The drummer came down near the end of summer break (I had never met or played with him before) and it only took two days to record, totally live. The Plague really only existed for two days, all three of us never played all together again after that. I think I suggested that instead of silence between tracks we fill it in with something, so Chris recorded himself on piano and it got stuck in between the tracks. This album was recorded on a cassette tape, two track, with cheap microphones and 500 copies of the album were pressed a few months later. He shipped me a few boxes of albums to my college dorm and I sold them to friends and family for $5 a piece. And that is the story of The Plague.
