The Geeks "Dreamland In Machineland" - Two songs recorded back in 1982 by the local art-punk-noise kids (well they were kids back then) The Geeks. From what I can tell this 7" has not been released until now and it's pretty damn good. Very rough and gritty recording (sounds very DIY). Both songs are very noisy with little melody to them at all. It's filled with noodling guitars, sqawnking saxophone, heavy bass, hard pounding drums, and yelled vocals. If you want some really raw noise-punk look no further.
My Picks: B
Katie P. 7/16/03

A) Fades into an all out freakout on sax, bass, drums, guitar, and vocals. Very gritty and rough recording. Vocals are mostly yelled. At moments it seems to have a melody, but it usually falls back into chaos. Ends abruptly with "Hey, I'm talkin' to you."

B) Fades in with guitars noodling around and noisy sax. Bass is in there too and then vocals come in (mostly spoken). This one is more cohesive and kind of grooves a little. Cool low plodding drums. Fades out.
