If you like Red Cross covers then Spent Planet might be your kind of racket, though as luck would have it almost everything that you see here-- not including the lollipop and the Smarties-- is impossibly limited stuff that you can't get anymore. Well, Phase One of the Spent Planet Cassingles Club (Bubble Gun, Closet Fairies), open to only 20 subscribers, is long gone, but you might still be able to hook up with Phase Two, starting with the Jean Claude Jam Band "Hong Kong Take Out" tape. In any case, I'm here to help you out with some of the goodies, as always.

Bubble Gun - like cross-breeding Eat Skull with M.O.T.O., only Bubble Gun is 1000x better than Eat Skull (cuz I'm so gud with math) and in fact Spent Planet makes the entire Siltbreeze catalog sound like doo-doo.

Closet Fairies - makes the entire Clitboys discography sound like doo-doo.

Jean Claude Jam Band - JCJB's split with Serious Geniuses made my Fake Best Of list for 2008, and now "Disappear", which fittingly nicks the riff from "Favorite Thing", is already one of the best three or four songs I've heard this year (Medication, Radio Faces, Wonderlust have the others).

Bubble Gun -

"50 Cent Keno"

"Big Big Fun"

The Closet Fairies -

"Popular Science"

Jean Claude Jam Band -

great, it's barely ten-thirty on a monday and I've already got The Clitboy's "we don't play the game" stuck in my head.

I hate you.

That's what's been stuck in my head for the past few days. I doubt I'll be getting any sympathy for it, though.

The mp3 files on this post are now listen-only (non-downloadable) files. For those of you who missed the boat, I will do my best to respond to any e-mailed requests for the original files-- though I've also heard that Record Hospital has a web site where you can download stuff from (i.e., the rest of the songs from the Closet Fairies tape).

The Jean Claude Jam Band stuff is definitely gonna be on my "Best of" list at the end of the year.
