Heavens to Murgatroid, a high-energy power pop band from New Hampshire, played A TON of shows in the early 1990s, and toured the entire USA at least twice. They rubbed elbows with bands like The Vouts and The Cavedogs. HTM were the band that had the big pink school bus, and bassist Tim McCoy had a bass that looked like an electric banjo.
Some of these songs made it onto HTM’s self-titled CD, which has now become a valuable collector’s item. I once gave a copy of that CD to Deniz Tek of Radio Birdman- he loved it.
Thanks to Rick Twombly for granting me permission to post these tracks.
Great power-pop band that played the Midwest a few times. The guys in It Figures grew up in the small hamlet that produced Aerosmith- Somersworth, New Hampshire. I once saw ’em play a gig with the Chicago band Green in Rockford, Illinois; it was one of the funnest nights I’ve ever had. Here is their six-song demo from almost 25 years ago, thanks to Rick Twombly for allowing me to post this for you to enjoy.

Oh, what the heck, I’ll even include both sides of their first record, a 7″ single from 1985:
GJG is certainly the best place to buy a ton of records. We have 470,000 of them, and have been selling 'em for 29 years. GJG is also a blog: I like lo-fi analog sound (cassettes and vinyl, please) and lo-rez/highly-pixelated/blurry photographs of (mainly) Minnesota music and its related ephemera.
A word about the audio clips posted on this blog: ABSOLUTELY NO sound editing is used. No level boosting, no de-clicking, no 'cleaning up', no sweetening, no mastering. You can do that yourself if you like- we're trying to give you the actual sound from the item provided- warts and all.
