Blah Blah Blah - In the Army 7" (Absurd 1) 1979

I picked up this single at the annual WFMU record fair last year on a whim. The vocals aren't my cup of tea, but at times I find it to be humorous.

My brief comparison/review: early electronic/industrial like Throbbing Gristle/Cabaret Voltaire with less interesting programming/sequencing mixed with the aggression of a group like Whitehouse.

Cranio @ Thing on the Doorstep has posted their LP - you can find it here.

Tracklist:
In the Army/Why Diddle?

Enjoy

Hi, I know someone who has two albums by Blah Blah Blah, but no chance I can have my hands on them to rip them. So I would like you very much to post Cranio's. Thank you! They have a track on the original "Some Bizarre" compilation, btw.

hi,

ok will upload the album as soon as possible.

Cranio - thanks, and I'll be sure to update the post with the link once it gets posted.

Paphio23 - Thaanks for providing the link to the Eskimo record. Hopefully Pokemi returns to this page and sees the link. After a quick listen, I am not sure this group really falls into what I focus on.

If you are willing to provide a write-up of them, perhaps I will do a proper post on the main page. I know nothing about them...

Sounds like Fat Albert on vocals.

The album Cranio offers is the second one from 1982 (not the first one from 1981, the picture and track list are wrong). Can anybody who reads this provide their first and third albums? Pretty please ...
