TANTRA MONSTERS, THE
"self titled"
DILL 005-2 CD $10.40
Aloha. THE TANTRA MONSTERS play some pretty straight forward ska, but their Honolulu address had me listening for a particular Hawaiian bent in the tunes for naught. What, no ukulele?

AM 600-1 LP $8.10
With this completely new direction (the first one failed), the band performs 9 original songs in the Can / Ash Ra Temple / Amon Duul mode of progressive guitar improvisation, but in their own inimitably incompetent style.

Ned Kelly turns in two noisy, aggro, angst-filled burners, while Three Years Down blasts down the doors with two rousing punk anthems in the East Bay tradition. (SCOOTER'S)

THROBBING GRISTLE
"First Annual Report"
GET 83-1 LP $9.60
Abrasive, aggressive and antagonistic, Britain's THROBBING GRISTLE pioneered industrial music and this is their lost album originally recorded in 1975.

They don't really tell you who does what on this 3-way split, but side 1 starts off with a burst of screaming noise, followed by a long section of spacey free jazz with guitar noise, acoustic bass, percussion and samples, then something like an almost-song, then more spacey noise/melody. Side 2 starts off with a series of acoustic songs, before embarking on some extended ambient bass-heavy noise. Silkscreen cover. (POLYAMORY)

SFTRI 668-1 LP $8.25
SFTRI 668-2 CD $9.65
SF's Tina Lucchesi's rock resume is impressive: drummer for the TRASHWOMEN, running Lipstick Records, and most recently fronting the BOBBYTEENS, she's now teamed with Minneapolis' TOTAL BABES! Consisting of Travis Ramin (SHORT FUSES), Jacques Wait, mega-producer Steve Lillywhite (Thunders, PSYCHEDELIC FURS, U2), and Johnny O'Halloran (MAGNOLIAS), they've concocted an LP of pure pop magic, incredible hooks, and gut wrenching guitars.

TIPILI
"Emetaphobia"
BBPTC 33-7 7" $4.00
This Boston 4-piece sounds a bunch like Boyracer, at least on one of the two songs, but so lo-fi and noise-soaked that the sound is their own. (BLACKBEAN & PLACENTA)

TITUS OATES
"Jungle Lady"
ANT 17-2 CD $11.00
American progressive underground band from the '70s, whose album was a time capsule of echoey vocals, wah-wah dual guitar leads that jump from speaker to speaker, Leslied Hammond organ, and art rock time-signature tricks. Regardless of whether vocalist Oates waxes sensitive or pompously poetic, and he certainly does both, the band bathes him in a rich, warm tonal underpinning that's quite charming. (ANTHOLOGY)

TNT
"Private Party"
FUK 6-7 7" $4.00
Sure, loud drummers are a dime a dozen, but few know the meaning of heavy the way this one does. Tina's mighty pounding (also heard in Lost Goat) is the basis of this rude, lewd, all-female trio from Santa Cruz. Punky, menacing, L7-like riffs buzz from Marshall amps, all topped off with wild, drunken, libidinous screeches. 3 uptempo rockers on red vinyl. (RADIO TRASH)

"Split LP"
RALPH PA2-1 LP $7.55
RALPH PA2-2 CD $10.40
A split album from two very strange and very Ralph groups. To Nije Sala (pronounced "too nee-ah shall-ah") can be called reckless, crazed, noisy, insane, & completely maniacal, but under the pointed baton of vocalist Steve Stain, very fine musicianship and well-crafted songwriting shine thru. W.M.D.T. produces a sound that's disjointed and yet completely sensible, rest-ing on a solid musical foundation and sporting some very odd lyrics and quirky flavors. (RALPH-T.E.C.

EXILE 2-4 cassette $4.70

TRUMAN'S WATER
"Godspeed the Vortex"
WO 10-2 CD $10.70
A re-issue of one of their old LPs (with a good hunk of bonus stuff), this sure isn't their "normal" rock stuff. Noise ranging from harsh shredding to goofy finger-up-yr-nose-isms and general fucking around. Annoying? Well... (WAY OUT)

TRUMAN'S WATER
"Skyjacker"/"Floorjacker"
SFTRI 255-7 7" $4.00
Another San Diego band, but this one's been compared to Sun City Girls, or even the Boredoms meet the Fall. They've done Europe a couple of times, released several records on small, maverick labels, and done two Peel sessions, among other accomplishments. (SYMPATHY FOR THE RECORD INDUSTRY)

TRUMANS WATER
"Action Ornaments"

TWENTY SECOND SECT
"Get That Charge"
SFTRI 003-1 MLP $6.75
This Australian band has almost enough guitars to drown out Liz Dealey's voice. Extremely loud and extremely nasty. (SYMPATHY FOR THE RECORD INDUSTRY)

TWENTY SEVEN DEVILS JOKING
"Smells Like Fun"
DION 1216-1 LP $9.10
DION 1216-4 cassette $7.45
Indeed. This fine example of bent and warped rock & roll sounds like a hell of a good time, too. Singer/guitarist Brian Curly has worked with the legendary Roky Erikson and it shows. The cassette version includes a bonus track. (DIONYSUS)

TWILIGHT CIRCUS
"Other Worlds of Dub"

TWINKEYZ, THE
"Aliens in Our Midst"
ANOPHELES 003-2 CD $11.30
Anyone who doesn't believe that the most bizarre punk comes from Sacramento need look no further than this, the complete recordings of THE TWINKEYZ, 1977-80. 21 tracks take an irresistable, garagey, VELVET UNDERGROUND-inspired sound and propel it into exceedingly strange and mysterious glam/psych/whatever (PERE UBU, CHROME, FALL), complete with WEIRD, BECK-like sound effects. (ANOPHELES)

TWO SAINTS
"Lost At Sea"
SFTRI 70-7 7" $4.00
Known for doing back-up for Johnny Thunders, this Australian band turns out heavy, straight ahead rock & roll. 3 songs. (SYMPATHY FOR THE RECORD INDUSTRY)

TYDE, THE
"Once"
OS 2201-1 LP $9.10
OS 2201-2 CD $10.80
British psychedelia as seen through California oceans and sunsets, influenced by late-'60s, early-'70s pop, BOB DYLAN and ELLIOTT SMITH. (ORANGE SKY)

TYRADES, THE
"Detonation"
BN 016-7 7" $4.00
Big Neck strikes again! 4 songs here that are totally trashed out, sloppy and maniacal. Really cool punk rock with an atonal slant, amazing, reckless guitar leads, nasty female vocals, a hissing, loud sound, and skewed, gnarled hooks. (BIG NECK)
