Monitor “Monitor”

I got this record in 1981 when this guy came in my store (Garbage Inc.)  and left copies of it, and also an early Meat Puppets single. I believe he was Ed Barger, the producer of both bands at the time, and he was traveling around distributing the records himself. It was the first I’d heard of either band.

Side A starts with horror movie music, then lapses into turgid 1980s  synthpop. Lots of the songs are just faintly annoying. But some of it is really good, too. There are a lot of styles mixed together, actually– it alternates between The Red Crayola and The Birthday Party (oh! the song that sounded like The Birthday Party was the Meat Puppets doing a song!) There are drawings of the band on the back cover. They are, apparently: Steve, Laurie, Michael, and Keith.
