I can’t find any info about this tape or songs titles maybe after this post goes up someone can let me know.
Info about the band from John Terlesky’s Morning Call Article
The four-piece band, formed by students at Kutztown University in 1992, enjoyed a scrappy run on the area underground music circuit, self-releasing a charmingly eclectic, eponymous debut CD in 1997 before splitting up in January 2000 because various members relocated.
After moving back to Harrisburg from Boston last fall, guitarist Dave Slabonik renewed contact with singer Shaun McNally and began to collaborate on some new songs. Drummer Shawn Roth and bassist Lou Weller tentatively agreed to get back together.
Crop Circle’s music, driven by Slabonik’s rootsy string-bending and McNally’s moody vocalizing, has been described as surf/Goth/rockabilly/punk, but none of the labels sticks for Slabonik. “It’s pop music, that’s all it is,” he comments. “It’s sloppy and melodically oriented, energetic and catchy. I think it’s great. That’s the only reason I stick around.”
Kutztown’s answer to a Amp Rep band. Were around in the early to mid 90s playing around Kutztown & Philly. The band was Bip Smedley (bass/vocals), Kyle Hildenbrand (guitar) and they had 2 drummers. The first one was Bud Dietrich and the second one was Dave Roberts. They released one 7″ (songs included here) & were on the FOE Get the Hell Out comp. Besides that there are 6 other songs included here and some live videos from Kutztown Pub & Lupos in Allentown filmed by Mark Anthony Hauck. At the Lupos show according to Bip “the club had the OJ chase playing on the big TV screen. No one was even interested in us playing”

Urinal Cake is Tom Miller – bass, Phil Schaeffer – guitar, Chris Collins – Drums and vocals, Chad Guilden – vocal stylist. They were originally active 1991-1997. They had their first reunion gig Jan. 25,2020 (23 years later). “We came out at a time in Kutztown, Pa that had a vibrant scene drawing bands locally and beyond. Happy and excited to be back spreading infectious rock n roll.”
For the Punks of Beer Tour – Urinal Cake are playing with is Big Green Limousine who we did gigs with in the 90’s turns out one of those guys works for Sly Fox (Tom works for Stoudts) and he didn’t know it until he saw a picture. Stoudts and Sly Fox just did a collaboration Black Lager (If you have seen the can art very similar to a certain band from CA that has bars hence the covers.) so the gig at Johnny Brendas (Wednesday, February 19, 2020) is that union along with breweries. Big Thanks to Laris for the replacement tape deck (mine is now broken) If you are in Philly keep a look out for his DJ days called Monday Is Tomorrow

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...Email Me @
