Originally released in New Zealand on a cassette in ’84, written (in one night!) as an agitprop performance in response to an Australian milk company’s corporate sponsorship of a Christchurch “Summer Rock” festival (“All Ages! Free Music! Picnics Welcome!). Ten songs railing about sexism & corporate social engineering (aka advertising), & one obliterated Stones cover! Ultra-underground art-damage punk rock with a vague affinity to like the Fall, maybe throw in a little Crass, post-“Fun House” sax skronk, maybe something more blatantly weird like the Lemon Kittens, trace elements of Flying Nun pop – but “Big Cheap Motel” basically makes “Palace of “Swords Reversed” sound like “Rumours.” Maximum ramshackle. Recorded live at the festival in question, or on some bedroom/basement boombox. Strangely inspiring document of resistance & weirdness. Sticker & insert with updated liners/lyrics.
Note: I have received a request for the link to be taken down until the album is sold out and I am respecting that request. Buy it here!
