Squirrelbait / David Grubbs

Squirrelbait / David Grubbs - Motorola Cloudburst

This record came as a free gift with some fanzine, I don’t remember which.  It was released in the late 1980’s, but the recording on side one is from 1983.  Side one contains the first two songs on Squirrelbait’s great first album, which was recorded in 1983, but never released.  The line up at that time was:

Peter Searcy — Vocals
David Grubbs — Guitar
Clark Johnson — Bass
Britt Walford — Drums

I don’t know the title of the song on side two.  As you can see from looking at the label pics, the label is adorned with inside jokes, so you have no idea what it is you’re getting with this record.  I can tell you this, however: the voice (talking about Elvis, Che Guevera and revolution) is that of Phil Ochs, take from Phil’s Live at Carnegie Hall LP.

The text on the back refers to a fictitious band called Motorola Cloudburst.  More inside jokes.  Clever stuff.

Squirrelbait - Tense / Earth Shattering

    Great Squirrel Bait stuff! Did any other tracks from that “first album that wasn’t” ever surface anywhere?

  3. Terry Says:

    I’m floored to hear of this “1st album”, do you have any of the other songs?
