The Mumbles


The Mumbles Resurrected From the Shed cassette

This ten-song tape is made up of a twisted mixture of hard-hitting garage blues, psych rock, and wailing vocals. The pace is kept to a slow, steady, bass-dominated speed with a clean guitar sound. Low-down and dirgy, but very entertaining.

The Mumbles Live in the Shed cassette

About half of the songs on this tape are carbon copy covers of IGGY POP (“Five Foot One”), JOY DIVISION (a priceless version of “Dead Souls”), and even the likes of BUTTHOLE SURFERS and BLACK FLAG. The original numbers are sporadically funny, too, sounding something like a R’n’R version of the MENTORS. This tape is almost so bad, it’s good.
