Anyone ID this band (not reggae, sorry)

American ultra lo-fi outfit, got played a lot on Peel about 1990ish - they played what sounded like very broken instruments or maybe whatever they found lying around, all recorded on a '60s dictaphone two rooms away from where they were playing! The result was like a very primitive blues, crossed with Beefheart and The Fall and Trumans Water. I seem to remember a 10" LP, but I maybe imagined that!

Thanks, Aaron - I know the name, but I don't think it's them!

Doo Rag (featuring Bob Log III - who now records simply as Bob Log III).

Excellent stuff!

Trumans Water were... well, I don't know really, just remember Peel used to play them a lot. Was never really 'into' them, but recall them as being in a vaguely similar vein. See what Google has to say about them!

Thanks again

Trumans Water are great...hard to describe their music but imagine a cross between Cptn. Beefheart, Sonic Youth & Sun Ra - very raw post rock/lo fi thing, melodic & chaotic at the same time.

Recommended albums :

Godspeed the Punchline (don't mix with their other "godspeed" albums)
Spasm Smash XXXXOX
Of Thick Tum

Just check their song titles...hilarious !
