HEY! Birdman! Surgeons! They're not post-punk! Well, no, but I'd cleaned up these tracks and had nowhere else to put them. The Birdman stuff doesn't sound half as good as the completely remastered versions found on the recent Sub-Pop compilation - buy it, it's great. The blood splattered Psycho Surgeons single will always be close to my heart, even if the sentiments expressed are pure punk thrash.

The Pobestek solo material is pretty good with Rod's fantastic guitar work shining through. It  can be seen as a precursor to the Hope Is A New Coat tracks which aren't as good as they could have been but are entertaining at least. Kathy's vocals are amazing.

The Famous tracks are a selection from a cassette of mainly live material that I digitised for Dermott. I've tried to EQ them a bit better - the cassette sounded like a 3rd generation dub and they're what I consider to be the best of their songs. And they really are pretty wonderfull.
