The group was originally rounded out by Andrew Weiss (bass) and Sim Cain (drums) (formerly in Regressive Aid / Scornflakes After recording 2 albums and touring heavily, Ginn disbanded the group in 1987 to concentrate on running SST Records. Weiss and Cain would soon join the Rollins Band. In the early 1990s,

Regressive Aid / Scornflakes

Regressive Aid was an instrumental band consisting of Simeon Cain (drums), William Tucker (guitar), and Andrew Weiss (bass guitar). Regressive Aid frequently played at City Gardens, a punk rock club in Trenton, New Jersey.

The band later would become Scornflakes, ultimately the same lineup with the addition of a vocalist (Boy White) and a shift into a sound centered on punk, rather than the jazzy-rock dissonance common in songs by Regressive Aid. Following their termination, all of the members of Regressive Aid would become longtime collaborators in the band Ween.

The members of Regressive Aid were featured as characters in the Matt Howarth comic book The Anti-Chair (1983), the title taken from one of the band’s songs. The band also received a plug in Howarth’s graphic novel WRAB: Pirate Television. Cain and Weiss also played in Gone, a three pieced punk instrumental rock outfit, as well as the Rollins Band, while Tucker went on to perform with Ministry in 1989. All three members spent time performing with the supergroup, Pigface, as well.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I first discovered Scornflakes at KDU it was only in the last few years I learned of Regressive Aid. Plus I never noticed that members of these bands went on to be Gone, Rollins Band, Pigface, etc. But besides just wanting to play their record because I liked it – the album had a side long side – so it has the secondary use of being a good record to play when you had to run out to the bathroom while doing your show.

Cows – Live – Khyber shows

One of my all-time favorite bands to see live The Cows, were one of the best of the 90’s Amphetamine Reptile bands. I never taped any of their shows probably so I could just enjoy the show. Luckily Don Sheluga (THANKS) did tape them twice from the Khyber one from November 90 and another from October 92. Sorry I didn’t do that well with the song titles -I’ll try to fix them later.

Here is some video from Pete Sounds of a different time they played the Khyber in May of 92.

9 Fireman 9

9Fireman9 were an industrial noise band from Philly in the early 90’s.  9F9 was Marc Laurick’s band.- Jon Wischmann (Sink Manhatten) played with them too and Steve (King Carcass) said he jammed with them a bit but never played a show with them. Steve remembered them opening for Pussy Galore at the Crypt in West Philly and Jon Spencer heckling them by yelling “Swans rip off” Marc heckled them back with “Sonic Youth rip off”
Besides Tar & Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi Mix (see below) they released two other tapes IHSV & one just called 9 Fireman 9 which was recorded at a show 5-1-87 at the Philadelphia College Of Art. If anyone has these cassettes I’d love to add them to this post.  (Thanks Jackie for the Mundi Mix Tape)
