Bomis Prendin – “Test/Phantom Limb ” – [Self Released]

A digitally-cleaned-up reissue of low-budget recordings (originally released on two flexidisks between 1979-80) from this Washington DC-area sound collective. Rave reviews in the underground music press encouraged them to keep making their weird combination of bedroom pop, tape collage, fuzzed-out instrumentals, bizarre spoken word, and experimental composition, and so they did, armed with guitars, keyboards, toys, primitive electronics, anything that made an interesting noise. Recordings were made super cheaply at home with cassette-to-cassette overdubbing and such. I like this stuff because it’s fascinatingly odd bedroom material even by today’s standards, and even more likable for having originated over 25 years ago. The band’s discography shows a handful of limited-run cassettes and flexidisks coming out between 1979-86. Apparently they’re still at it; brand new material came out on CD in 2001 and 2004.
