Latimer was a fixture on the local scene in the mid-1990s, thanks to frequent live shows and tape, 7 inch releases plus later a pair of memorable albums on the World Domination record label. The band — which at various times included singer/guitarist Geoff Doring (who sadly passed away in 2005) – bassist Dylan Cotton – drummer Rob Sherman – guitarist/singer Rich Fravel (Uptown Bones, Mt Vengeance, Ashtabula, Blue) and guitarist Kevin Morpurgo (Dandelion).
This is an early 6 song demo tape called Ted Morgan Muscle Car in the band at this time was Rich, Dylan, Geoff & Spidey. There are little excerpts of music in between the songs.
Howe Gelb’s Giant Sand is the most resilient and consistently inventive American band of the last two decades–part of the well spring of the Tucson musical dynasty.
Along with Thin White Rope I thought Giant Sand was one of the most under-rated sort of country/indie/psych/whatever bands of the 90;s
(Again I will try to figure out the song titles later but I wanted to get this up)
Thanks for the tape file Don Sheluga
Two shows from t he Khyber in 2002 from Cato Salsa Experience. They consistsed of Christian Engfelt, Cato Thomassen, Jon Magne Riise and Nina Bjørndalen in 2003). The group formed in Oslo, Norway in January of 1998.
They released a self titled EP in March of 1998 through their own record label, Garralda Records.
They released their debut album, “A Good Tip for a Good Time” in 2000 in the UK and 2002 in the US.
Caterpillar was one of my favorite local bands in the 90s – I was hooked after hearing the title track off the Bus 6 7 inch. This is a demo tape without a lot of info on it but I assume it was before that 7inch and the previous one Velvet Ears.
The lineup of the band was:
Bass – Brenda DeFeo
Drums – Jack McInerney
Guitar – Dennis Davis
Guitar, Vocals – Mike Lenert
The Eddie Beinlich tapes. Eddie thinks the LMNOP (who later became Doctor Bombay) tape is from their first ever practice. The Deliriants practice is one of their early ones probably before they played any shows and even decided on a band name. The Bill + Mark tape is a mystery. Eddie cannot remember why he has it and doesn’t play on it as far as he remembers. It’s on the a-side of the Deliriants practice tape and I think it is really good.
The Jean-Paul Sartre Experience, later renamed JPS Experience after a lawsuit by the estate of Jean-Paul Sartre, were part of the 2nd wave of New Zealand’s Flying Nun Records Bands. I first heard them through their song Flex which was on the I’m In Love with These Times compilation and video comp. It was unlike any of the other bands on that and really stood out. They had a wide variety of sounds over their 3 albums and many eps. Most (maybe all?) is collected in I Like Rain: The Story Of The Jean-Paul Sartre Experience
My tape has no information on it but I believe this show was at JC Dobbs – part of the Noisyland tour with The Bats and Straitjacket Fits on July 27, 1993.
To the best of my knowledge all of the music links are for recordings that are out of print but if you enjoy what you hear, buy other records and support the artist(s) and/or labels: if you don't approve of having your material displayed and would like to have it down...
