I'm Feeling A Little Inexact Now

click for enlarged view

Here's the first Creature Did single (note the pre-Danbury address), recorded at legendary Trod Nossel no less. Now, Creature Did may have been the undisputed riff masters of 90's Danbury indie rock, but imagine what Monster Magnet could've done with a riff like this. The chicks and blow would've been piled higher than a Wade Boggs road trip. (Apologies to everyone who forgot all about Monster Magnet* until I ruined it just now.)

According to the back sleeve, a cassette was made with two extra songs on it, but I don't have it. That means there's at least two Creature Did tapes floating around that I don't have, I think.

"You are tewing me the twuth? I beweeve yew!"

*apologies to everyone that can't remember who Wade Boggs is, also

Hey, Rich Martin! One of the coolest guys ever.

As it happens, when I interviewed Grand Passion around '96 or so, it was at a Grand Passion/Creature Did show in Rye, NY (the place that the Sheridan bros. had, post-Anthrax Club)...

I remember some horrible horrible band opened up-- the Knockout Drops, or something? They had a "guess the cover" contest; it was a Hoodoo Gurus song, and Doug won a t-shirt.

The mp3 on this post is now a listen-only (non-downloadable) file. It's been moved to my Vox account (accesible through the above listen-only link), along with "Fractures", the b-side of the 7" which wasn't included in the original post.

For those of you who missed the boat, I will do my best to respond to any e-mailed requests for the original files.
